But the time hadMoreConnie Kale and Mandy OHare were friends when they were young, before it mattered that Connies father was the retired golf pro turned greenskeeper at the posh Sankaty Head Golf Course, of which the OHare family was the sole owner. But the time had come when being from opposite sides of the tracks made a difference - and the rift between Mandy and Connie was one that never really closed. While Connie followed in her fathers footsteps as a professional golfer, Mandy turned into the towns golden girl - wild, rich, irresponsible. Still, no one - least of all Connie - would have predicted that Mandy would turn up at the Sea Breeze Motel with a tough male stripper, one Tony Steel - and dead, to boot.Alfred, the Governor, OHare doesnt take kindly to people who upset his ambitions for his family. And with Mandys father, Pudge, running for Congress, hes particularly anxious not to have bad press messing up his sons chances. Connie, just back from the grueling pro circuit and newly-turned private detective, cant keep herself from paying her respects at Mandys funeral. After so many years, shes astonished the Governor would even remember her - much less invite her back to the OHare mansion for a drink.She knows the Governor is never generous without a reason. When he offers to hire her to get the real story on Mandys death - and keep it out of the local papers - Connie isnt sure if its sentiment or snoopiness that makes her say yes. But she soon finds that the privilege of being in the Governors circle comes with no strings attached...Old-time money and small-town New England politics, the high life on Sankaty Head and the low underside of life among the hustlers and dealers of Rivermuth, all combine to make Slow Dancer a fresh new twist on a classic mystery story.
