    never a dull moment

    I am a fan of James Ross. I have read and enjoyed all four of his books and look forward to more! These books revolve around Prairie Winds Golf Course with a cast of characters that are truly real. I feel like I know the men and women of this club intimately. The compassion and love these people have for each other is wonderful. As I am not a golfer myself these were not books that I typically would be drawn to. I am changed because of them, I have a knew respect for the players and their integrity. I hope you will take the time to read any or all of the books written by James Ross. You won't be disappointed.

    Lifetime Loser is a Real Winner!!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book, Lifetime Loser. The story took many twists and turns but was wrapped up neat and tidy at the end. I was shocked at the preserverance of J Dub to follow through with all that it took to finally find justice. I had a hard time putting the book down. What a great job James Ross did making sure all the legal manuvers were understood and connecting the game of golf to life. I can't wait until his next book comes out.

    A Great Read!

    Lifetime Loser is a great read. Ross does an excellent job with the story line, and the details of the characters. Often times, novels can have a predicatable conclusion, but Lifetime Loser wraps up with surprise elements in the ending. I look forward to reading Ross's next book.

    Lifetime Loser

    Lifetime Loser captures a complex story involving fraud, egotism and sleazy characters¿ three key ingredients for a highly entertaining and engrossing book.

    A very engaging book. Ross gives you the real deal. Trust and betrayal, death and dabuchery...and that is just within the sleazy government of Southern Illinois. Ross's J'Dub is a good, trusting guy...too trusting. His honest ambition blinds him to the nastiness of a crooked partner that swindles him out of everything...right under his nose. Things finally turn in J'Dub's favor after a great deal of time, pain and money. J'Dub learns some life lessons along the way and emerges with his family, his integrity and an understanding of how life works in the real world. Way to go Ross!

    'Life Time Loser' is a winner!

    This is a book that I would not have ordinarily bought but found it totally entertaining and would highly recommend it to others. In fact, I gave it to my 24 year old son (a golfer), that typically does not have time to read, and he liked it so much he passed it on! Breckinridge Country Club

    Lifetime Loser¿ reads like a Grisham novel. The story tells of the struggle between good & evil and how much patience and perseverance it takes to bring forth civil justice when criminal justice fails in our society. In addition to including many detailed facts about our muddied-up legal system and unethical business practices, Ross does a very nice job with the parallel between life and the game of golf.

    This book shows how honest people can fall prey to deceit and corruption. James Ross does an incredible job bringing the characters to life. You won¿t want to put this book down until justice is done!
