A small Caribbean island is no paradise, fool's or anyone else's, after one of those reminiscent racist episodes when a US senator's killed on the fifth hole of the golf course. But all is not as black as it is made to seem to the CID's Henry Tibbett, particularly after a Washington lobbyist is erased and American cotton interests are revealed. Even if a militant girl called Diamond, who lost an eye to a golf ball on that same hole, has every reason to be, well, teed off. . . . The pleasant, careful competence--as before.
