More about “Unplayable Lie” by David Myles Robinson:
When Eddie Bennett began playing golf as a way to bond with his father, he quickly displayed a rare talent for the game. After a long and at times tragic road to the PGA Tour, all of his hard work seems about to pay off when it looks as if Eddie would be a sure candidate for Rookie of the Year. Then Eddie sees something he should not have seen on the back nine of the Congressional Country Club. During a practice round for his first U.S. Open, he witnesses a murder. The killer is the man who will probably be the next President of the United States. He quickly understands his golfing career is ruined, but that is not all. The event forces Eddie underground while he tries to prove what he saw in a bid to get his life back. Eddie begins living a life a world apart from the pampered life on tour. He puts his trust in Atlanta attorney, Bryce Ballyntine, who helps him investigate the murder. Through his connection with Ballyntine, Eddie meets Mug, a terribly ugly but brilliant African-American with a criminal past and a talent for creating new identities. Armed with new credentials, Eddie flees to Mexico where he becomes friends with a golf hustler named Al and his gay partner, Manolo. As it turns out, Manolo has a past connection to the man who is now President. After the administration discovers Eddie in Mexico, he is forced to bolt again. In Belize, Eddie hooks up with Becky, a sexy but flighty scuba instructor. In the Dominican Republic, Eddie again risks exposure when he meets Sister Theresa, a nun who knew him in his past life. Unplayable Lie is much more than a novel about golf and the lessons the game can teach us. It is about coming of age, about attaining goals, and about dealing with the tragedies of life. It is about how the invisible hands of parents guide us through life, long after they are gone. It is about trust and friendship, and love.
About the Author:
David Myles Robinson was born in Los Angeles, California in 1950. He went to Blair High in Pasadena and then attended San Francisco State College, Cal State Los Angeles, University of Hawaii, and San Francisco State University respectively. He obtained a J.D. from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 1975. It was there that Robinson met his wife, Marcia Waldorf.
The two moved to Hawaii to practice law in 1975. Waldorf retired as a Honolulu Circuit Court Judge in 2006 and Robinson retired from his private practice of law in 2010. They have traveled extensively around the world, having been to all seven continents and sub-Saharan Africa nine times. Robinson’s non-writing passions are golfing and skiing and the two reside in Taos, New Mexico.
Robinson has always wanted to write. He was editor of the school paper in high school and while in college he worked as a staff journalist for the Pasadena Eagle, a weekly minority newspaper. He completed his first novel about twenty years ago, but he shelved it after deciding that the writing was too stilted by too many years of writing legalese. Unplayable Lie and Tropical Lies are the first two novels Robinson has published since his retirement. His third novel, Tropical Judgments, is also a Pancho McMartin legal thriller set in Honolulu, and should be published sometime in the next six months. He is hard at work editing his fourth novel.
