Lee Ofsted5 books in series
A Wicked Slice Publisher's Summary
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....
