    He was a 1930s golf legend and Hollywood trickster who adamantly refused to be photographed. He never played professionally, yet sports-writing legend Grantland Rice still heralded him as "the greatest golfer in the world". Then, in 1937, the secrets of John Montague's past were exposed - leading to a sensational trial that captivated the nation.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    After 2 chapters of listening to golf shot feats and Hollywood name dropping, I was still looking for a story. The book should have been titled "Feats of the Fabulous Montague" because it forgets the mystery.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Leigh Montville again?

    Doubtful


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The reading, phrasing and diction are fine, but there is a "sing-song" rise and fall to most every sentence.
