The story is that two women golfers are playing a round at a private golf course. One of the women is unfortunate enough to hit her ball into a bunker (sand trap) which is notorious for being difficult to get out of. While hitting her ball several times she is still in the trap but uncovers a human skull. Sloan and his investigative unit must uncover (an unintended pun!) the identity of the victim and why he was placed in that exact spot. It certainly doesn't help matters any to know that Superintendent Leeyes is a member of the club and is in the running for nomination to the clubs governing board. He wants the mystery solved and solved quickly and quietly.
It is my own personal opinion that this book qualifies as a short story or novella, not a full length novel. It only took me -- a very slow reader -- four hours to read it from cover to cover. That is not a good sign for me. The actual story begins on page 15 of a 202 page novel. The print is rather large and there are 27 completely blank pages within the story plus many other blank half pages at the end of chapters. They actually count the blank pages to add up to the 202 total. That is way, way too much white space for me. This means that all of this blank space was included so that the book would appear longer. It was something which irritated me.
The story is totally centered around the game of golf. I don't play golf but I do enjoy watching the game on television, going to tournaments, and listening to my husband tell me about his latest round. This book was golf overkill. If you don't know anything about the game, you will be confused and probably bored to tears. And I watch lots of British golf tournaments also. They don't refer to the golf clubs in these old fashioned terms any more. It just made the book seem terribly dated. Too much detail about golf, not enough mystery and character development.
I gave the book two stars simply because I have been reading and enjoying Catherine Aird's work for so long. There wasn't enough depth here. I think it should have been a short story. Sorry but that's how I feel.
