This New Lady Sleuth has a Handicap...Scratch

In Roberta Isleib's new mystery novel, SIX STROKES UNDER, Cassandra Burdette battles her way through the LPGA Qualifying School in pursuit of her life's dream-a position on the Ladies' Professional Golf Association Tour. Along the way, a fellow competitor is disqualified for carrying illegal equipment and another files suit against her father after recovering repressed childhood memories. Then the bodies start to fall, and Cassie realizes that professional competition can be...murder.

In writing SIX STROKES UNDER, Dr. Isleib combined her experience in psychology and her passion for golf. Her main character, Cassie Burdette, carries more baggage in her golf bag than just the regulation 14 clubs. "Putting Cassie in therapy and including a psychologist character allowed me to have some fun with what I know best, and maybe do a little educating along the way," says Isleib. "The professional golfer part is pure fantasy!" Formerly in private practice and on staff at the Yale University Health services, Isleib has also published articles on golf psychology in Women's World of Golf, Golf for Women, Tee Time Magazine, and National Golfer. SIX STROKES UNDER is the first in Berkley Prime Crime's Golf Lover's Mystery Series. Read more at http://www.robertaisleib.com.

Here's what early reviewers have to say about SIX STROKES UNDER:

"Roberta Isleib hits the sweet spot with this impressive debut."-Steve Hamilton, Edgar Award-winning author of North of Nowhere

"SIX STROKES UNDER...reads like a Sunday afternoon watching Tiger Woods play - it's tough to take your eyes off it. Isleib expertly captures the myriad personalities of professional golf and the unique world of the country club and spins it like a Hollywood thriller."-Matt Pepin, New Haven Register

"A mystery so intelligent and engaging, even readers who don't know a driver from a nine-iron will love it."-Abigail Padgett, author of The Last Blue Plate Special

"Golf was already a mystery worthy of Poirot. Now Roberta Isleib has written a mystery worthy of the game."-David Owen, author of My Usual Game

SIX STROKES UNDER is available from Penguin Putnam/Berkley Prime Crime on June 4, 2002
