Praise for J. Michael Veron and The Greatest Player Who Never Lived:
“J. Michael Veron’s first novel is golf’s literary rookie of the year.”
— Dave Anderson, New York Times
"Talk about a well struck first shot. Michael Veron hits a literary hole-in-one…a tale that mixes crime, mystery, and courtroom drama."
"Solid as a shot that nestles up to the cup from a 3-wood distance...a golf whodunit, southern style."
—-Pat Sullivan, San Francisco Chronicle
“A page-turning mix of golf history and mystery, almost as if John Grisham played 18 holes with Bagger Vance and decided to write about their day together.”
—-San Diego Union-Tribune
When Charley Hunter goes to work as a summer intern at a prestigious Atlanta law firm, he has no idea that his passion for golf will come into play on the job. Stumbling onto a yellowed file containing correspondence between Beau Stedman, an astonishingly talented teenage golfer, and the legendary Bobby Jones (once a partner at the firm), Hunter finds himself embroiled in a decades-old murder case?and searching for an invisible champion who won nearly all his matches with the masters.
As Hunter unravels the facts of Stedman?s case, his hunger for the truth is matched only by his deepening reverence for the game, one that leads him to a heart-stopping courtroom showdown between golf?s most powerful association and a family torn apart by buried secrets.
