    So many try, so few succeed--to write a golf mystery that gives the game a fair shake, that is. Aird comes closer than most, despite relying on that silliest of cliches, the dead body buried in a bunker (there's not enough sand to do a proper job of it). And, please, why do her golfers use nine-irons to play out of the sand when the sand wedge was invented some 70 years ago? Golfers may not be able to get beyond these gaffes, but fans of Aird's Detective Chief Inspector Sloan series will find plenty to enjoy here. The interplay between Sloan and Constable Crosby, his dry-witted sidekick, is a delight as always, and Aird's take on life in the "caddyshack" boasts a few Bill Murray-like flourishes. The plot, about rival club members vying for development rights to land surrounding the links, unfolds satisfactorily, and Sloan's asides to himself provide a running satirical commentary on the foibles of the private-club set. Solid series fare despite a couple of double bogeys on the front nine. ((Reviewed July 2005)) Copyright 2005 Booklist Reviews.
