Book Review
Anyone who cut some of their genre eyeteeth on the excellent books about the fishing, hunting, and crime-solving (in that order of preference) Boston lawyer Brady Coyne will be delighted to hear that William G. Tapply has brought him back for another mystery that combines expert entertainment with some serious social issues. Sharing a house in Maine with his "virtual spouse," writer Alexandria Shaw, Coyne gives a tough, independent African American woman named Charlotte Gillespie a lift and an offer of help finding the person who poisoned her dog. When Charlotte disappears and red swastikas are painted on her house and on Coyne's car, he--and we--know that something nasty is going on. The complicated plot involves a connection to the KKK and a bunch of deer-hunting, conniving computer scientists, and along the way Coyne gets...

From Publishers Weekly
Seventeen authorsAsome celebratedAwho served in the Peace Corps at various times over the last three decades offer, in these unusual, enlightening tales, a startling look into the mostly Third World locales they grew to know. The authors' backgrounds and subject matter varies widely, though the themes most often converge in the clash between Western and native cultural ways. Paul Theroux, who served in Malawi in 1963, starts off the collection with the magnificently taut "White Lies," about a horrific parasitic rash set upon a philandering foreigner by his scorned African lover. Technical writer Leslie Simmonds Ekstom's (Nigeria, 1963-65) "On Sunday There Might Be Americans" is a powerfully imagined narrative about an aboriginal boy's scrounging for subsistence in the shadow of rich white interlopers.

From Publishers Weekly
Known more for his novels of the macabre, Coyne moves onto the links and comes up with a terrific blend of golfing lore, PGA tournament drama and country club soap opera. It's 1946, and Jack Handley is a 14-year-old caddy at a posh country club near Chicago. He loves the game, and his mother needs the money. When Ben Hogan shows up one day to play a practice round before the Open, Jack caddies for Hogan and for Jack's pal, assistant pro Matt Richardson, as the two men play a not-very-friendly round. Coyne's descriptions of the strained practice round and the gripping first day of the Chicago Open are masterful sports fiction, with Jack reliving every drive, chip and putt, adding savvy golf tips and caddy tricks. Add in Jack's entanglement in Matt's secret romance with the daughter of the club's rich and powerful...
