Jenny Chase loves her job as assistant pro at the Harbor Terrace County Club in the charming suburban town of Poningo. But her idyllic lifestyle is threatened when she discovers the body of greenskeeper Rick Gilbert hanging from a rafter in the cart barn. The police rule the death a suicide, but Jenny soon has her doubts. Why did Rick, who she barely knew, call her five times on the night before he died? Is Kit Gilbert’s fervent belief that her husband did not kill himself based on self interest or some shared secret? With a $2 million insurance policy at stake, Jenny investigates Rick Gilbert’s death. But as evidence of foul play mounts, so do the complications in Jenny’s life. Her teenage son is arrested for petty theft, jeopardizing the legal custody she won in her divorce decree. Her best friend on the police force proves himself to be a shaky ally as well as a fickle lover. And someone is willing to kill her to bury the truth.
