Overview

There comes a time in everyone’s life when he or she must make the decision to put aside an injustice, or to seek the ultimate in personal justice—revenge. Golfer Lisa Johanssen, the heroine in Lisa’s Revenge, has made that decision. With an iron will, and immutable determination, she sets out to exact revenge on the man who brutally raped her, leaving her a physical and emotional wreck. She wants to not only make him pay the ultimate price for his crime—with his life—but she plans to embezzle several million dollars from his company.
In assembling the characters whom she needs to help accomplish her scheme, Lisa must morph into many different characters herself. At once a fantastic—almost crazed—lover to the over-sexed lawyer whom she needs for one part of the plan, Lisa also simultaneously becomes the lesbian lover to a reserved company controller whom she needs for another part of the plan. Lisa’s chameleon-like transformations take their toll on her psyche, threatening at times to derail her carefully-laid-out blueprint for revenge.
Lisa’s uncle, a co-conspirator in this revenge plot, provides the balance and stability that is much-needed in Lisa’s often-schizophrenic obsession with making her tormentor pay for his assault on her. Her uncle brings Lisa back from the brink of self-destruction many times throughout this narrative, and keeps her focused on her ultimate goal.
All this takes place against a background of the tournament golf world in the fairytale-like location of South Florida. The author’s detailed knowledge of tournament golf puts the reader right there on the links, experiencing the strain, anguish, exhilaration, and heartbreak of being on the professional golf circuit.
How is Lisa able to keep herself together, artfully choreographing the various characters she has assembled, all the while playing her way up through the ranks of women’s tournament golf with the goal of competing in the PGA’s International Cup? And, when the final goal of revenge is within her grasp, does she find it sweet, or bittersweet? Or, does her relentless quest for revenge destroy her in the end?

Meet the Author

Gary Crist grew up in Indiana in the 60’s. Like many Hoosiers in love with sports, he spent countless hours in his backyard, on playgrounds and in gymnasiums playing basketball. He dreamed then, and still dreams now, of the State Championship his Southport Cardinals never won.
His best sport turned out to be golf, and he won the Club Championship at his father’s country club in Franklin, Indiana twice. Sometime thereafter he forgot how to chip and putt, and his playing skills eventually declined to almost nil. Nevertheless, Gary continues to enjoy the game, of which he has been a non-stop student for over fifty years.
A graduate of the Indiana University School of Law, Gary’s practice gravitated to “Sports Law” and he served as Legal Counsel to the PGA Tour and PGA of America for over thirteen years. Thereafter, he maintained his own law practice, specializing in the representation of athletes and a wide variety of sports industry organizations, including Wilson Sporting Goods Company, the National Golf Foundation, the Dan Marino Foundation, the PGA Tour Tournaments Association and others.
His enthusiasm for writing has been a life-long experience. His first story, about his beloved Southport Cardinals winning the State Championship at hallowed Butler Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, was pecked out on a dilapidated Underwood when Gary was ten years old.
Gary day dreamed during his business career of retiring to a seaside resort. Magically, that has happened. He lives at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, where he enjoys the company of his sons, daughters-in-law, two very special granddaughters and Vicki, the best wife God ever created.

Hot and steamy from the Florida Gold Coast to the Sticks of Indiana.  Lisa has nerves of steel in life and golf, which make this seductive  pro irresistible.  I found it hard to put down and wanted it to go on!

Lisa is quite a character. Aspiring golf pro. Beautiful and multi talented lover. Vengene seeking vixen. Out to get the trusted mentor who cruely violated both her body and mind. She is smart seductive and absolutely ruthless. Sweet revenge or bittersweet. Each fascinated reader can decide.
