This is not the first mystery to feature murder on a golf course, but it may be the most improbable. Aird's small-town police procedurals featuring CD Sloan are all tongue-in-cheek, but this one is over the top. Bruce Montague handles the greensward murder and subsequent confusion with aplomb, keeping the plot and characters well in hand. Each major character has a distinct voice with subtle gradations. CD Sloan's voice, for example, differs depending on whether he is speaking to his superior or to his subordinates. Montague also handles women, Scots accents, and young and old golfers with believability and a lighthearted take on the material. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
