Dead Ball

Barry Cork, Author Scribner Book Company $16.95 (220p) ISBN 978-0-684-19044-0
Cork's first mystery bears the originality, dry wit and suspense typical of the best British thrillers. Angus Straun, police inspector and author, recounts the doings at the Royal West Wessex Golf Club, where he is investigating suspicious acts originating in landscape vandalism but escalating to the murders of Keith Fletcher, feminist April Yonge and others. Since only days remain before a tournament (expected to attract huge crowds and TV coverage) takes place, cunning is required to guard the gathering world-class champions and halt the perpetrators. Luckily, Straun's literary agent and true love, Laurie Wilson, is on hand to help crack the case. This appealing partnership turns in an offbeat, ace performance in Cork's capable hands. (Apr.)
