About the Book

Every year at the upscale Mohawk HIlls Country Club, the members fight tooth and nail to win the club’s coveted Cappuccino Cup. This annual contest pits the club’s members of Italian ancestry against those of other heritages. The matches are always hard fought and at times bitter, but when a dead body turns up on the eighteenth green, the competition may have spun out of control. Sheriff Billy Hogan, a lawman more accustomed to traffic accidents and trespassers than homicide investigation, is confronted with a murder mystery eerily similar to one that took place on the same putting green forty years ago when his father was the Sheriff. Hogan’s investigation of the murder and subsequent killings lead him down a perilous path and brings him face to face with a shadowy and powerful adversary.

Vincent Falcone is the club’s wealthiest and most frightening figure and he stands much to lose if Hogan learns the truth. It is a truth that will force the Sheriff to confront much of his own family’s tragic past and reveal startling facts about one of the most dark and infamous moments in our country’s history. As Hogan and his band of deputies stumble and bumble their way through their investigation, Falcone and his dark forces threaten to destroy all that the Sheriff holds dear.

But the key to the case is held by a quiet and unexpected source, and as the events surrounding the Cappuccino Cup draw to a close, it is a dangerous and deadly chase along the back nine of life.
