Andrew Broom couldn't be happier living in his hometown of Wyler, Indiana, where views extend for miles, everybody knows everybody, and there's plenty of time for golf. With a near-flawless trial record, Broom is the top lawyer in town.
Unfortunately, mischief and deception lurk even in the quietest of towns - and on the most pristine of fairways. When the corpse of Edgar Bissonet - a prosperous and influential businessman, but not the best golfer - turns up at the seventh hole of the Wyler Country Club, Andrew Broom's hopes for a leisurely summer of golf and gossip quickly disappear.
Did Edgar die of natural causes during a last, desperate attempt to better his game? Broom, conveniently on the sixth hole when the corpse is discovered, quickly detects clues that suggest foul play. And when someone close to Edgar is accused of his murder, Broom agrees to defend the suspect.
Of course Andrew Broom is pleased to be working on an investigation in which he can combine a visit to the crime scene with a quick nine holes. But as the trial draws to a close, the stakes become much higher - and he just might lose the case.
