Classic mystery writer John Logue has contributed some of his most acclaimed fiction to the growing eBook library of QP fiction. Now available are three suspense novels set in the world of high-stakes sports. Originally published by Crown Publishing and Ballantine Books of Random House, these books formed part of the Morris & Sullivan Mystery series. The first in the series, Follow the Leader, was a finalist in the Edgar Awards for best first novel. These books are fun, and presented digitally with active Table of Contents.
Missing at his tee time at the U.S. Open outside Atlanta is the latest leader of America’s greatest tournament. Where is he? And how does his fate relate to the apparent gruesome suicide of a teaching pro turned TV commentator? The Open compresses the lives and fortunes of the world’s greatest golfers into 72 holes. To the winner goes immortality, and upwards of a million dollars. The losers inherit a lasting obscurity. All the careful rituals and ribbings in the game conceal a deadly chemistry of money and pressure—the fear of losing, the thefts of time, the erosion of skill and nerve.
John Morris, traveling the circuit as the veteran Associated Press sports reporter, knows all too well the contradictions and vices of the game he has covered for 21 years: whose lives and skills are unraveling, whose wives are willing, whose iron ambitions are merciless. And yet the grace and geometry of golf are Morris’s life. That and Julia Sullivan. Atlanta police detective Jack Rutledge seeks only the killer and will destroy anyone, or any sport, standing in his way. The Open, and golf itself, are threatened in this gentleman’s game of death.
