Hott Review:

Like so many others I’ve been there and looking back from the viewpoint of No More! I can see how I could have recognized situations before I was in deeper than I should have been.

What I liked: No More! was not an easy book to read. It is so absolutely real that it’s painful to see how easily it is to be in the position of these examples. However, the information and suggestions in this book are essential to each of us.
Each section is clearly outlined and gives us a clear outline of warning signs, prevention tips, and clear examples so that we have not only the knowledge to adequately judge situations and trust our instincts but also how to potentially live through potentially dangerous situations.

What I didn’t like: I really think that the author has done a disservice by not placing enough of a significance on men that are put this the powerless situation, as well. Unfortunately, that’s happening more and more.
There are many behaviors outlined in No More! that are identified as being characteristics of a potential aggressor. My problem is that there are people – many – that exhibit these behaviors but would never commit such heinous acts. I think the more important point that should have been stressed is that it can be ANYONE. We need to stop thinking people are safe – and we need to stop thinking that it’s the fault of the victim!!

Steam: There are a lot of REAL examples that will be difficult for some readers to endure. I suggest that you read the book but skip the clearly noted examples.

Golf, Madness, and Murder Collide

FBI Agent Lou Schein is assigned to investigate a grisly murder in Los Angeles, one echoing a similar case in Phoenix, Arizona. Agent Schein, a golf enthusiast, notices a strange coincidence: both crimes occur while the LPGA tournament is being held in the respective cities.

After the fourth murder, it’s clear they are after a serial killer obsessed with the golf game of match play. He is scoring the individual murders as one hole of the match on the current tournament course.

The killer leaves a series of taunts and clues which the FBI must decipher to learn where he will strike next. It is a game that becomes an obsession for both the killer and Agent Lou Schein, one determined to win the match and the other to stop him before he strikes again.

He hears the dog barking. She is trying to quiet the dog as she approaches the door. David feels his hand tighten around the grip of the three iron. Her face expresses surprise and dismay when his Fourth Hole opens the door while pushing the little dog back with her right foot.

“Yes?” She says as she opens the door. He assumes the screen door that separates them is locked.

“David?” She gasps. “You’re soaking wet!”

“Hello, Dorothy. I didn’t expect it to be raining like this. I want to return your three iron, had you noticed it was missing? I must have dropped it into my bag by mistake the day we were practicing.” He holds it up so she can see it.

He watches her reach for the latch on the screen door.

“Actually, I haven’t noticed!” she says as she pushes the door open. “I haven’t been back to the course since the day we met.” She is motioning him into the foyer. “Aren’t you freezing? Get back Daisy!” Dorothy again pushes the dog with her foot.

David brushes water from his jacket and steps inside.

“How did you ever find me?” She asks, smiling. “Let me get you a towel. Just a second.” She scurries down the hall with Daisy at her heels.

“That isn’t necessary, Dorothy, I just wanted to return your club.”

Dorothy Duncan, hands him a towel and a moment later, the Fourth Hole is lying on the

Author Bio:

I was born in the Midwest on a dairy farm outside a small town. I had a love of art from a young age; drew and wrote stories about the farm. My upbringing was conservative and religious and it took a long time to overcome it. I served in the Marine Corps during the Vietnam war and was honorably discharged in 1971. I then attended the University of Calfornia and received a degree in Studio Art in 1976. I painted for many years and have paintings in many private collections primarily on the West Coast of the US. I retired and finally had some time for writing; Match Play is my first novel and it will be released later this year or in early 2014. I live in the South Western United States with my wife Ann of twelve years.
