Kurzbeschreibung

Newly revised to resolve formatting and typographical problems. Aaron Elkins, the author of the Edgar-winning Old Bones, teamed up with his wife, Charlotte, to fashion this lighthearted mystery--a fictional look at the less glamorous side of a golf tour.

In this first Lee Ofsted mystery, Lee is a "rabbit" golfer in the Pacific-Western Women's Pro-Am. She made it into the tournament by the skin of her teeth and suddenly she can't keep her long drives from slicing--veering sharply to the right. She is hitting the ball perfectly and it simply isn't going where it is supposed to. And if Lee can't get rid of this slice quickly, all the scraping and saving to enter the tournament and stay in it, all the Big Macs and cheap motels, will be for nothing.

Then Lee discovers the body of the tour's star at the bottom of the course lake, and her own problems with golf techniques pale in comparison. Enter Lieutenant Graham Sheldon. He's charming, handsome, and determined to capture the killer--as well as Lee's heart. But the murder has triggered buried anger and petty jealousies among the players. Lee finds out just what wicked means are causing her drives to slice. And it looks like the murderer has barely begun to score....

4.0 von 5 Sternen A WICKED SLICE has a nifty twist! 5. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Lee Ofsted is just beginning to make a name for herself in the competitive world of professional women's golf, and this tournament may well be the one that will be her springboard to stardom--or so she hopes. But the sudden, bloody death of the top-ranking player coupled with the equally sudden appearance of a screamer of a slice in Lee's usually impeccable swing kills all her hopes. Who wanted to kill the star? And what is causing Lee's incredible run of bad luck? A WICKED SLICE takes the thread of these questions through a maze of fascinating minor characters as Lee tracks the mystery to its surprising ending.
I am not a golfer, but I found the sport, with its professional players as well as the well-heeled amateurs to be a vivid, fascinating background to the story. Lee Ofsted's character is engaging, intriguing and believable. Charlotte and Aaron Elkins have created a cast of interesting characters and a plot with some truly nifty turns. I recommend the book very highly.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Needs editing desperately 6. Oktober 2012
Von Joan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Desperately needs editing, and the lack thereof makes this book painful to read!
For example: "steel" for "steal", "an 75" for "a 75" and here is a great example, "for intensive purposes"!
The correct expression is "for all intents and purposes" I believe.

This lack of editing seems to be a common problem in low-priced Kindle books.

2.0 von 5 Sternen An avid golfer says "bogey" to this book 15. Juli 2013
Von Baker-Wright - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I am an avid golfer and I really wanted to like this book, but, truthfully, after the first 30 pages I just skimmed it and about halfway through I just quit on it. I just could not develop a kinship to the main cha racter, Lee Olfsted - she was a whiner. The writing itself was not good - I would compare it to the early college level - words are just there sometimes to fill the pages. The murder happens pretty early in the book and Lee finds the victim at the bottom of a pond where she had lost some golf balls and had gone in to try and retrieve them (I have played golf for 25 years and have never know a golfer to actually wade into a pond to get their balls). She not only finds the victim, she pulls her out of the water. She said she thought she might be able to help her with CPR (the description of the victim was that she was bloated and disfigured - CPR? I don't think so). I think most people who would find a dead body in a pond would get out as fast as they could. Then the investigating detective is, of course, very attractive and they are attracted to each other immediately. This is where I started the skimming process. Couldn't take any more of it. I think this is the first book in a series (can't imagine enough people read it to warrant a second) and maybe the writing gets better. I will never know!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Proofreader needed 8. Dezember 2013
Von Al Balmer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have never given a book by either or both the Elkins' less than a four rating, but like many other readers, I found this one so badly edited that it detracted from an otherwise good novel.
"a good stead" for "in good stead", "murder" for "murderer", a lemon drop martini magically turns into bourbon, "I" for "It", "to" for "too", a $1200 fee changes to $4500, "did" for "dig", "do" for "go", an "O" all by itself on a line, "god" for "gold", "slivery" for "silvery", etc.
I have the next book in the Lee Olfsted series still to be read, and I hope it had a proofreader.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Charming cozy for golfers 5. Januar 2014
Von Louise Marley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Charming, well-written cozy mystery that should appeal to golfers! Sometimes it's so pleasant to read something that's just for fun, and in the case of this book, the writing is smooth and clear, with characters I can't wait to know better. I also--even as a golfer--learned a few things I didn't know! The authors have clearly done their research, and I appreciate that. Already ordered the second novel!
