Chief Superintendent John Lambert was looking forward to relaxing at the end of a tedious day. Instead, James Shepherd, Chairman of the Golf Club calls to say he needs to see Lambert urgently.Despite his misgivings, Lambert honours the not-so-polite request and makes his way to the Golf Club later that night. Surprised by the lack of human presence at the Club, Lambert begins a room-by-room search for the chairman. Surely, he must still be around, after all, it had been Shepherd’s request to meet. And, Shepherd’s unmistakeable Rolls Royce was still parked outside. Finding a very dead James Shepherd was not something Lambert had been expecting. The heavy knife that protruded from his chest suggested that this night was only about to get longer…Sergeant Bert Hook joins Lambert on the tedious task of speaking to all who’d last seen Shepherd. With the coroner’s estimated time of death to work on, Lambert focuses on the members of the committee who’d last seen Shepherd. The only problem is that none of them seem the least bit sorry about Shepherd’s death…Lambert is puzzled. Digging further into the movements of the key suspects, Lambert and Hook narrow down the potential motivation each suspect could have had and as the investigation unfolds, another call to Lambert and another request for an impromptu meeting throws another murder into the mix. Only this time, none of the suspects have alibis…Lambert is going to have to work hard and fast to bring this string of murders to a close. Or was the murderer too clever for their own good?
