It wasn't exactly what Freddie Flatbelly expected to start his day.
After all, in the early morning hours of a spring day, heading for the golf course, no one expects to find a dead body lying on the floor of the pro shop! But that's exactly what Freddie found, and now the police were all over him with questions.
Thus begins as compelling and absorbing a "whodunit" as you'd ever want to read, punctuated by the writing skills of author Robert F. Shreve. His novel, The Wanton Wedge, centers around a pair of detectives, one legit, the other a hobbyist. There are plenty of opportunities to compare the likes of Spade, Poirot, and Hammer; it soon becomes apparent, however, that Mr. Shreve has created his own personal and fascinating technique for weaving the tangled web.
