In Unplayable Lies, Dan Jenkins takes us on a tour of the links as only he can do it. Here, Dan delves into the greatest rounds of golf he's ever seen, the funniest things said on a golf course, the rivalries on tour and in the press box, the game's most magical moments--and its most absurd. Filled with well-known characters like Tiger Woods, to others like Titanic Thompson--gambler, golf hustler, accused murderer, legendary storyteller--Unplayable Lies is an ode to the game of golf and the people who play it. But it is Dan Jenkins, so nothing--even the game itself--can escape his wrath, his critical eye, or his acerbic pen. This is Dan Jenkins at his best, writing about the sport he loves the most.
Marrakech is Southern California's newest premier country club and promises a lifetime of privileged membership for those who have reached the pinnacle of financial and social acceptance. Four golfing friends-Wolfgang Martini, Donald Diedrich, Mark Huntington, and Richard Nelson-decide to join. But they soon discover that the membership also includes con men, lechers, Mafiosi, and at least one murderer. After they become members, all four men suddenly take on roles that threaten their friendship. Martini becomes the leader of the Founding Members who are embroiled in a divisive feud with the Regular members. Nelson is a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who sarcastically documents Marrakech's hedonism. Diedrich takes on the dual role as the club's Don Juan and proponent for the Juanenos Indian tribe, who claim the club has usurped their land, which they need for casino development. But it's mysterious Mark Huntington who raises suspicions-he's either a government agent or a hit man. When the bodies of members start to pile up, it's anybody's guess who is responsible. Is it a member of the Mafia, someone from the Indian tribe, or one of the friends themselves?
Texas journalist Josh Griffin lives for scoops, but he's never faced real danger to get one. Nor has he ever been emotionally drawn into his stories.

Lexi Carlisle is the daughter of Josh's college sweetheart; watching Amanda agonize over her missing daughter while refuting police insinuations that she had something to do with the crime is more than Josh can handle. And when he unravels the web of lies spun by Lexi's crazed kidnapper -- who has killed once and isn't afraid to do so again -- Josh realizes the story takes second place to the girl's rescue.
