Evil stalks an idyllic retreat...

A tranquil Spanish village by the sea is the perfect place for Primavera Blackstone to raise her ten-year-old Tom, son of the late lamented Oz, especially when they are joined by his nephew, tyro pro golfer Jonny Sinclair. But when her best friend Shirley introduces her new man, Patterson Cowling, he seems to be a trouble magnet. A casual thief tries to pick his pocket and is found a few days later with his face blown off. A bloody coincidence, or does Patterson Cowling have a past to protect? As the body count rises, and Primavera becomes den mother to an extended golfing family, it seems that homicide is par for the course, and that hazards lie in wait for everyone. Can she save the day, or is the game just too rough?

Drawn to this title by positive responses to other Quintin Jardine thrillers. I am coming in late to the Oz Blackstone/Primavera Blackstone series, but I liked this story very much. A strong female protagonist, three-dimensionally developed, operating in an exotic international setting, with interesting supporting characters and good procedural details. Jardine writes knowledgeably about golfing, food, international black marketing and human choices and desires. I hope to read others in this series as well as in the Bob Skinner series by this author.
