PSYCHOLOGIST DIAGNOSES MURDER AT LPGA PRO-AM

Just how far will an author go to find inspiration for her mystery novel? Clinical psychologist Roberta Isleib paid to play in the ShopRite LPGA Classic's pro-am tournament in Atlantic City as research for her second golf mystery, A BURIED LIE (Berkley Prime Crime, May 2003.) "Playing alongside professional golfers was a golf nut's dream," says Isleib. "And how could I help but find intrigue and murder in the gambling capitol of New Jersey?"

As the book opens, up-and-coming golfer Cassie Burdette has survived LPGA qualifying school, now she's found pro-am tournament hell. Placed on a team with four scientists from the pharmaceutical company Meditron, she hopes she can survive their oversized egos. But when one of them turns up dead, Cassie suspects they are playing a game of their own-now she just wants to survive.

Isleib was introduced to the game of golf by her husband-to-be in 1991, and hooked not long after. She took up writing articles about golf psychology in order to justify the time spent maintaining a whopping handicap. Her articles have been published in WOMEN'S WORLD OF GOLF, GOLF FOR WOMEN, TEE TIME MAGAZINE, and NATIONAL GOLFER. Isleib's debut novel, SIX STROKES UNDER (Berkley Prime Crime, June 2002,) was nominated for a Malice Domestic Agatha award for Best First Mystery and an Anthony for Best Paperback Original.

HERE'S WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT THE GOLF LOVER'S MYSTERIES:

"And now with a woman in the PGA, this year's wonderful golf series by Roberta Isleib is hotter than ever. SIX STROKES UNDER is a stunning debut, chockablock with all the passions and perils of the Pro World and the clever Cassandra Burdette in competition." Mary Alice Gorman and Richard Goldman, Mystery Scene Magazine, Spring 2002

"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

"No need to question whether or not author Isleib has made the cut with her sophomore effort, A BURIED LIE reads as well as Annika Sorenstam plays. Cassie's dry wit, matched with the intriguing premise of medical shenanigans against this green backdrop, make for a read golf nuts and mystery readers will enjoy." Kathryn Lively, Blether.com
