  • "Joe is hired to help a leading member of the local golf club who is being accused of cheating."
  • "Laid-off lathe operator-turned-private investigator Joe Sixsmith is suddenly very popular, and not just with the ladies. Though he doesn't know a putter from a nine iron, he's being implored to come to the rescue of one Christian Porphyry, the scion of the upper-crust family that owns the most exclusive country club in Luton. Porphyry faces expulsion for the heinous crime of cheating at golf. Inexplicably, political boss/crime czar "King Rat" Ratcliffe is also interested in employing Joe, offering him some very attractive surveillance work in sunny Spain.

Suddenly he faces a potentially fatal pummeling from a variety of sources'and is in grave peril of discovering just how dangerous a contact sport golf can be."@en

Before long, though, Joe's on the trail of a conspiracy that starts with missing balls, and ends with murder ..."
