Kurzbeschreibung

Newly revised to resolve formatting and typographical problems. If there is one thing the young golfer Lee Ofsted doesn't have on her mind, it is her chances of being selected for the Stewart Cup Tournament--the competition that pits the greatest American golfers, male and female, against their British counterparts. Lee is on no one's list of the 'greatest American golfers,' so it comes as a surprise when the great Roger Finley, captain of the American team, invites her to play. She's on the team, but exhilaration soon gives way to anxiety. Can she deliver? However, as play begins, Lee's worries about making a fool of herself take second place when Roger's devoted long-time caddie is found murdered, and Lee herself is the victim of an attempt on her life. It takes all of Lee's nerve and natural talent to see the competition through, to keep out of the gunsights of a resourceful killer, and, in the end, to make sense of a bizarre and paradoxical mystery.

Synopsis

If there is one thing the young golfer Lee Ofsted doesn't have on her mind, it is the chances of being selected for the Stewart Cup Tournament - the competition that pits the greatest American golfers against their European counterparts. So it comes as a surprise when the captain of the American team asks her to play.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The latest and best of the Lee Ofsted series 11. Dezember 2005
Von Jean Erickson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have greatly enjoyed Aaron and Charlotte Elkins series of golf mysteries featuring Lee Ofsted, but this one was the best so far. The characterizations have deepened and become even more believable. The plot displayed heightened complexity and, as always, the reader is drawn into an interesting and emotionally satisfying story. With so many mystery writers succumbing to the formulaic approach, it is a great pleasure to read the work of a storyteller. Not that it reaches "great novel" status - it wasn't intended to! But it does offer an engaging and enjoyable mystery for the intelligent reader.

As for the monomaniac reviewer who dinged the book for a one-stroke golf "error," may your birdies be gone forever! Get a life. For the rest of us who care more about the overall quality of a book than in self-important nit-picking, this book delivers a hole in one!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Where Have All the Birdies Gone? by Charlotte and Aaron Elkins 1. Juni 2013
Von Constant Rearder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This collaboration by husband and wife writing team, Charlotte and Aaron Elkins is a fun read, even if you have no interest in golf. If you like or love the game this series is definitely for you.

Lee Ofsted is a 41st placed golf pro on the Women's Golf circuit. She is, for the first time in her three or 4 year career, steadily "in the money." She takes a break from working steadily all year, and has some quality time with her much neglected fiance` when she receives a totally unexpected invitation to the prestigious Stewart Cup Golf Tournament in South Carolina as the one randomly picked women golfer to join the big names of the game, by the biggest name in the field.

Terrified she won't measure up to the best in the sport, she is still greatly honored to be chosen. The man who invited her is the best golfer in the country--usually--but has been on a definit slump this year and she must, to her surprise, support him and correct his continuous errors the first games of he tournament.

The murder of his caddy doesn't help his game, intrigues Lee's fiance`, a security consultant that is a former homicide policeman, and her best friend, Peg, who has come to South Carolina just to cheer on Lee's game.

An attempt on Lee's life, the confusion of why the pro's game is off, the growing friendship between the sheriff and Lee's fiance` due to the ongoing murder investigation and the involvement (or not) of Lee's faithful caddy, all enliven the story and keep one turning the ages. Do read it--I believe you will enjoy it as much as I did.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Non-Golfers do not beware but read and enjoy 12. November 2010
Von drkhimxz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The talented Elkins family produced a series of books starring a very junior professional golfer. This is a most entertaining and congenial entry. I doubt if anyone is less informed than I or less interested in golf as a participant or viewer; nevertheless I never felt myself an outsider. The book is written for anyone who can read, golfers welcome.
That reminds me!
In fact, one need not know how to read, since it is a recent book whose publisher did not restrain robotic reading on the Kindle. Robotic reading does not achieve the dramatic effects produced by the trained actors who, so often, magnify the impact of the prose they are reading. The male robotic voice on Kindle (there is also a female one which can be chosen) is understandable and, in general, creates a straightforward reading. It does take time, however, for the average person with no previous experience to develop the mind-set that allows one instantaneously to translate the mechanical reproduction into an acceptable text. I imagine that Amazon's electronics consultants (or staff) can easily tweak the process so as to produce better pronunciation of common words and better recognition of sentence modifiers. I have been pretty well satisfied with the kindle on this score.
My own enjoyment of the book centered on an appealing central character, the lady golfer, and the straightforward character of the text which does not linger lovingly on intricate details of no interest. So for a quick, easily read, light detective story, I can commend this book to you.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Review of Kindle version 29. März 2010
Von Bigsby_guy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
An entertaining book, marred by some formatting problems. There are multiple instances of strikeovers from the editing process that have left in the book. There are left-hand margin problems, also. The book was apparently taken from the British version, as it uses single-quotes all the way through (very distracting). It doesn't look as though anyone proofed this work as an ebook.

This is the fourth (?) volume of the adventures of Lee Olmstead, golf pro. I've enjoyed them all. I'm knock off one star for formatting issues that should have been caught.

Edit: Added one star, as the formatting issues have been addressed. A three-star review is Liked/OK.
2.0 von 5 Sternen Good for golfers 16. Februar 2014

This was interesting setting and good story but I prefer the Dr. Oliver series. I am not a golfer. I like archeology.
