Top Customer Reviews

By Marshall Lord TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 May 2009
Format: Paperback
This is the third of a series of four murder mysteries featuring lady golfer Lee Ofsted and her boyfriend Graham Sheldon. The series to date consists of:

1) Wicked Slice
2) Rotten Lies
3) Nasty Breaks
4) Where have all the Birdies gone?

The prologue to "Nasty Breaks", set in 1971, describes a tragic event during salvage operations off Block Island, a small and beautiful place off the coast of New England. Then the action cuts to "the present day" (approximately 1997 when the book was published).

Lee Ofsted is an up-and-coming lady golfer trying to make it in the Women's Professional Golf League. She is between tournaments when she gets a lucrative offer to spend a week teaching golf to executives of a salvage company at Block Island. And when her boyfriend Graham, a former cop who is now an international security consultant, gets a chance to join her on the island, it appears that Lee's stay on Block island will be most enjoyable.

But soon after she has arrived on the island, funny things start to happen. First there is a ludicrously inept attempt to kidnap a prominent person connected with the salvage company for whose executives the golf course is being run. Then Lee and Graham find the owner of the company murdered. And it soon appears that almost every senior executive had a motive.

Eventually a tale of greed and ambition going back almost two hundred years is discovered ...

Entertaining and well written murder mystery.

I know nothing about golf apart from having read some of PG Wodehouse's books about golf, but it doesn't matter. It is easy to understand the highs and lows of the golf tournament and the human drama carries the murder plot forward lightly.

HASH(0x9786a1d4) out of 5 stars Fabulous!!! 27 Oct. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Professional golfer Lee Ofsted has just landed an instructor's job assisting fellow pro Jackie Piper at a beautiful Rhode Island resort. Her job is to provide golf lessons to the employees of a marine salvage company. To Lee, this is an easy way to combine a vacation with making an easy grand a day for a week. However, the anticipated idyllic week goes sour at the fourth hole when Darlene Chappell, the spouse of the salvage company president, Stuart, is almost kidnapped. Soon afterward, Stuart is found murdered.
Lee and her friend begin to investigate the murder. To their amazement, many people had the motive to kill Stuart. However, as she gets closer to the truth, Lee literally finds herself in a sudden death game in which her life is the ultimate stake.
The third Lee Ofsted mystery novel is a fabulous who-done-it due to the brilliant characterizations of the lead protagonist, her associates, and all the duffers hooking their swing. The story line is interesting as Charlotte and Aaron Elkins scribes a fabulous amateur sleuth tale. This reviewer recommends to lovers of golf and amateur sleuth stories, all three books (the previous two are WICKED SLICE and ROTTEN LIES) because they are superb mysteries.

If you have ever played golf, you'll find this book a fun, fast read that really relates to all the schenagnigans you never wanted to believe really happen at the golf club. If you've never played golf, you'll be enchanted by the protagonists.

Book three and I can see the author maturing right before my eyes. This one had lots of twists and turns. Amazing how the author tied all the characters together.
