Paired in the golf tournament with Julie McCoy, the tall leggy brunette heiress to the McCoy Golf fortune, Shane and Julie, with his caddie, Topflight, play their way around the three courses of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, protecting Tommy Toshiro while trying to solve the murder mystery. Yakusa Japanese gangsters, industrial espionage between golf equipment manufacturers; the tension of playing in a PGA Tournament, and the business aspects of golf tournaments and their sponsors add dramatic levels of intrigue to the story.
Golf, business, wine, women and fast cars, all set in the natural beauty of Pebble Beach, perched on cliffs overlooking the Pacific. What a great setting for a murder. A murder on the fairways.
