Author Mike Boveabout this book: This book started with the simple idea that my second Bruce DelReno Mystery would involve a dead PGA professional. His body is found in the first paragraph. I had a victim. As a golfer I am fascinated by the technique of hitting a low trajectory shot that can drill through wind and produce a lot of roll. It is called a stinger, so I used it as a special skill to give my dead character, and he became Stinger Maguire. The idea grew and became "Stinger Maguire."

Some characters from the first book reappear, like the police detective with whom Bruce develops a unique relationship. His wife, Genny, gets a bit more interested in the sleuthing activity. And Ben, the Apache sidekick, is still humorously annoying, but again a valuable friend. Of course new characters from Maguire's life contribute immensely to how this story unfolds.

As Bruce and company uncover secrets and more about the lives of Maguire, his family, and associates, motives seem to surface. But, when Maguire's own secret is discovered, it becomes a bigger national story than his death.

This is meant to be a lighthearted piece of fiction. It has no obscene violence or language. Though it contains some social commentary, it is not to preach or condemn. After all, it takes place in my fake town in a real part of Northern Arizona.
