Excerpt


Prologue



Morning mist scented with pine and wet grass coated Albert Windemere’s golf cart. He tightened his grip on the wheel as he passed the green on Pine Willow Course. The pin placement on the back edge would make for a tricky putt to be sure. Funny, the things you notice at a time like this.

He inhaled deep and slow, feeling the warmth of the orange-gold sun escaping the horizon. Huge oaks, spectators to twenty seasons of golfers, stretched their shadows across the fairway. Albert patted his pocket, congratulating himself on his precise preparation.

The luminous dial of his watch read 5:40 AM. He had at least twenty minutes before the course swung into motion. By then everything would be over. Now that it was time, a sense of joy slid over him. He pressed his foot to the pedal for the cart’s uphill climb and then turned off the paved path to enter the woods behind the fifth green. A squirrel, disturbed on its breakfast quest, chittered noisily and darted away.

The gunshot at five fifty, silent and precise, didn’t even disturb the sparrows’ morning song.
