Computer mogul Phillip Bates proves he is the richest person in the world when he invites three former golf greats to play a round at his new course. If Senior pro legend Alfonso Zamora, women¿s great Rita Shaugnessy, and amateur champion Billy Sprague comes to his course at Rathgave Castle, Scotland, Phillip will pay them several hundred thousand dollars each. Alfonso may be losing his eyesight, Rita may be turning into an alcoholic has-been, and Billy may have gambled away his future, but each agrees to join the pro-am event along with many world leaders and celebrities. <P>However, an uninvited guest sees this tournament as an opportunity to cause massive destruction by blowing up a list of who¿s who. An anti-terrorist law enforcement team hopes to thwart the activist before the planned explosion makes a deep divot that wrecks havoc on the world scene. However, their bumbling reactions seem to only encourage the enemy whose goal is a special hole in one. <P>THE PUTT AT THE END OF THE WORLD is more than a golf thriller. The story line is a crazy eighteen holes punctuated by a group of weird charcaters with different agendas. Nine highly regarded authors contribute chapters to the novel. Though their styles vary, not one of them wavers from the main plot. In other words, readers gain a satirical anthology within a novel environment that is fun to read. <P>Harriet Klausner

masterpice of comedic ability!!
The book is crazy, the format, for the book is crazy and the author's are diffenatly crazy, but most of all the plot is insane! This book captures the sillness of the author's involved. All include twist and turns on the story of a golf tournament founded by a character suprisingly close to Bill Gates. Because the book was written by so many different hilarious authors each try to out do each other for dibs to the most crazy chapter in the nine of the book, while you the author reep the benifit.Was this review helpful?
