|Shane Rimmer - Long Shot
Gene Tucker, once an odds on favourite to capture the title of ‘Young Golfer of the Year’ was knocked out of the running by a devastating car crash on a West Virginia highway – his golfing career appeared to be over. He was reduced to running a driving range, giving golf lessons on the side. His involvement in the Pro Game appeared over. He was running on empty.
A dynamo Washington lobbyist Victor Laski controls the financial consortium that has just developed the latest and most lavish championship golf course in Northern Spain, bordering the Pyrenees Mountains. The course is Campos Ciela.
Out of the blue, Tucker receives an offer to manage the Opening Day tournament. He takes on the contract and with it a brimful of murder, Spanish nobility intrigue, a diehard group of Basque dissidents whose aim is to protect the ancient rights of their land and a young Basque renegade, Ramos, who is bent on wiping out the future of Campos Ciela and Gene Tucker as well.
From a savage murder in a London car park to another killing during the Opening Day tournament in Navarre, it’s a deadly business...
