Publisher's Summary

A sweltering summer spells bad news for the private detective business. Thieves and philanderers take the month off and the only swingers in town are the ones to be found on the 19th hole of the Royal Hoo Golf Course. The civilized reputation of the 'Hoo' is in trouble, however. Shocking allegations of cheating have been directed at one of its leading members, Chris Porphyry. When Chris turns to Joe Sixsmith, PI, he's more than willing to help - well, he hasn't got any other clients - only Joe hadn't counted on being French-kissed then dangled out of a window on the same day. Before long, though, Joe's on the trail of a conspiracy that starts with missing balls, and ends with murder!

Dastardly doings on the golf course

This is an amusing story from the series about Joe Sixsmith, an unlikely private dectective who operates in Luton, not exactly the epicentre of the universe, but still a hotbed of crime.

Fun and at time nailbiting if, like me, you do not have strong nerves. Do buy this amusing and exciting story where the "Roar of butterflies" is explained.

Enjoyable Book

Entertaining and gently amusing. Well narrated. Excellent plot.
Sadly I can only see one other Joe Sixsmith on this site (Book 4) It would be nice to see more (unabridged of course)
