A special gift for Reginald Hill fans on Father's Day -- the return of Joe Sixsmith in a new adventure. Luton in the grip of a sweltering summer is a pretty sedentary place -- which is bad news for the private detective business. Thieves, fraudsters and philanderers take the month off and the only swingers in town are the ones to be found on the 19th hole of the Royal Hoo Golf Course. The civilized reputation of the 'Hoo' is in trouble, however. Shocking allegations of cheating have been directed at one of its leading members, Chris Porphyry. When Chris turns to Joe Sixsmith, PI, he's more than willing to help -- well, he hasn't got any other clients -- only Joe hadn't counted on being charmed, kissed and then dangled out of a window all in the same day! Before long, though, Joe is on the trail of a conspiracy that starts with missing balls, and ends with murder!
