the top-tier professionals - there is even a miniature golf mystery here. There
is also an entire range of types of killers and a brilliant mix of murder motives from a trailer park to more affluent neighborhoods. Many of the stories
end with a surprise twist - there are more ways to commit murder on the golf course than anyone imagined.
