Murder on the Back Nine by Charles Horn

Spencer Tillman collapses on the sixteenth tee while playing golf with his father and two brothers. The autopsy determines he was poisoned. But how? And by whom? Hank Tower, former spy turned New York PI, enters the case when Spencer's eighteen-year-old son skips school to seek his help. The young man believes his father was murdered by one or both of his uncles.

Tower's investigation takes him inside a hyper-complex family, each with a motive for killing Spencer. There is ...

Spencer's brother, a State Senator who's desperate to be the Majority Leader...
a second brother whose excesses have put him in life-threatening trouble with the Mob...
a high-living cousin and hedge-fund manager who's under investigation by the SEC...
a strikingly beautiful actress-cousin whose needs threaten Tower's relationship with his lovely companion, Carol Tomkin.

Add in a conniving mistress, a smooth-talking Mob lawyer and a family trust worth millions, but structured treacherously.

The patriarch of this mélange of suspects is the retired head of a large hospital chain and father of the victim. The unusual terms of the trust could make him the next to die.

Tower and the police must solve Spencer's murder to prevent a second, but it seems beyond solution. Then, when the police are about to "cold case" it, an off-hand remark reveals to Tower the Who, How and Why behind "a murder most clever."
