More About the Author

A writer as well as a reader, I am always perusing the virtual bookshelves looking for the next great novel. I enjoy reading thrillers and mysteries of popular authors like John Sandford, Lee Child, Harlan Coben, T. Jefferson Parker, and Vince Flynn. There are also some new authors that have caught my eye like Michael Wallace, Dan Dawkins, Cheryl Bradshaw and J. Carson Black. I've even inspired my 14-yr old nephew, Jake, to write & publish his own short story, Third Time's the Charm. I'm a history buff which brought about the writing of The Chemist, The Lost Journal and the newly released Foxworth Academy. As a golf enthusiast, I thoroughly enjoyed writing Deep Rough. A 10-handicapper, I am still trying to get my handicap back in the single digits like it was at one time (5.5) before kids!

I really enjoyed the book. It normally takes me a week or two to get through a novel, but I couldn't put this one down and did it 2 evenings. Golf fan or not this book will keep you turning the pages!!! Can't wait for another one by this author.

This book is badly written, and is full of factual errors and implausible scenarios. The Masters is NOT the oldest Major, it is in fact the youngest. Nobody in Vegas would take a million dollar bet that someone will not win a particular tournament (most people don't, even the best) especially someone who is "the best golfer never to have won a Major," and one of the main characters, who apparently goes to the Masters as a spectator every year, has to be told by marshals not to talk loudly while players are teeing off. And then he acts with surprise and outrage upon being told. And, the "hero" has got no idea how to get in contact with the pro around whom the story revolves, despite the fact that the hero's company is the pro's agent. It is as though someone who has no idea about golf decides to write a book, does a little reading about golf and The Masters, talks to a buddy who plays golf, and then makes a whole lot of stuff up. I had to force myself to finish it.

Deep Rough is unique in that it introduces the reader to the world of golf while also telling a story, and here and there the author includes little facts and side notes related to golf, which I found to be interesting. He did a great job of knowing when to add them in without taking away from the story or overdoing it. I've had the opportunity to travel around and visit several different golf courses so it was easy for me to get a mental picture of what Chris described in his book.

Another thing I enjoyed was the dialogue and the timeline of the story, both of which were well written. There was a natural flow that was easy to follow.

Around the middle of the story, things heat up with passages like this: "I said," the man began, "keep your mouth shut. You don't know anything, you didn't see anything, and you didn't hear anything. You know exactly what I'm talking about. Understood?"

Scenes like this keep the story moving and the reader invested. It's a good story overall, and I would recommend it to anyone - whether you are familiar with the golf industry or not.

If you're a golfer and own a kindle, this book is a great buy - don't hesitate. You will be entertained.

But purely as a novel, I would put the writing on par with some of David Baldacci's earliest works. The characters are superficially drawn, and as a result the drama lacks the impact it could have had. It is hard to "really" care about a character unless you feel you truly know them, and that is not the case here. The author also slips up at times by telling rather than showing... ie. a character will just say what his emotional state is rather than revealing it through action or behaviour, and that also tends to keep things at a superficial level.

But apart from these issues, it is a good yarn with a decent plot and plenty of... golf!

Mystery and suspense surrounding one of golf's crown jewels. Deep Rough thrust you into a thriller utilizing one of Golf's most treasured venues as the backdrop. A must read for any golf fan especially those who had the privilege to walk the hallowed grounds of Augusta National.

I can't understand how this book got so many good reviews. The characters were one demensional, the writing is elementary school level, and the "facts" about Augusta National and the Masters which are woven into the story are incorrect much of the time. This was a bizarro world Masters with corporate hospitality tents, blimp coverage, and topography I've never seen in years of attending the tournament. He describes thick rough off the fairways, a creek beside #14 fairway, and refers to the par 3 12th as an easy hole. I doubt the author has ever set foot on the grounds.
Bobby Jones is rolling over in his grave.

Loved this book! Since I've gotten my Kindle Fire I've been reading more and this book had me hooked on every page. I love golf and I love a good mystery. It was interesting in all aspects. The story line was intriguing which kept me turning page after page after page. I would recommend this book to anyone (even if you're not a golf fan) especially those who enjoy playing, or watching golf on TV. I first saw the book offered on Pixelofink.com and as soon as I saw the cover and the title I immediately liked it (I even thought that it would be a great mystery story). Lo and behold, I was really excited after I read the synopsis. I sat down and read it in three days. If you're interested in a mystery on the great course at Augusta during the Masters, then READ THIS BOOK!

i rarely, and i mean RARELY read books. i just happen to come across this with my free month of Amazon Prime with my new Kindle Fire. And holy cow what a great book! i know just enough about golf ( i get to play once or twice a year) to understand, and visualize the authors mindset. even if you don't know the difference between a putter and a driver, this book is composed well enough for you to easily follow and understand. i look forward to reading another one if his books.
