Local Knowledge

(The first book in the Kieran Lenahan Mystery series)
A novel by

Competing in the Capitol Metropolitan Golf championship, lawyer-turned-golf pro Kieran Lenahan is taken in for questioning by the police, who believe that his young ward is responsible for the murder of millionaire country-club owner Sylvester Miles.


Set in the world of pro-am golf, Kieran Lenahan, golf pro at Milton Country Club in Westchester County, N.Y., has just earned a berth in a local PGA tournament when the police inform him that the body of one of his club's co-owners has been fished out of a water hazard. Lenahan, a former lawyer, is stunned to hear he has been named in the dead man's will and designated to evaluate a set of rare, legendary Blitzklubs clubs, the sale of which is the sole inheritance for the dead man's beautiful trophy wife. Then the clubs are stolen, and Lenahan's young shop assistant, a reforming juvenile delinquent, is arrested for the murder. Lenahan must free his assistant, search for the clubs - and prepare to play his opening PGA round.

As Publisher's weekly says, "Even non-golfers will delight in Lenahan's love of the game and the fairway world."


Conor Daly is the pen name of a practicing attorney.
