Crimezine chums Harlan Coben and Michael Connelly have been slacking off their pounding work schedules off late to team up for a round of golf.
So who won? The two chums are being tight lipped but Crimezine’s money is on Conners. Crimezines favorite Floridian is well known to be fast friends with crime fiction’s very own Jack Nicklaus, the golf-tastic Jimbo Patterson.
Patterson, a renowned golf bore is well known for his prowess on the fairway, he is in addition to this a close neighbor and publishing stable mate of Conners. Crimezine has learned that great Pattersoni has imparted much Yoda like wisdom to the Conners game over the years, Authors beware spoiler!!!!!!!
Still, Coben and Conners are back at it in front of the word processor, which is more than can be said of Patterson, whose elves have churned out at least a dozen Patterson branded products this week alone.
Back to the mystery writers PGA tour though and one wag on the Twitterverse who allegedly witnessed this mighty meeting of golfing prowess, wryly commented, ‘As golfers go they are great writers.’
So is a golf thriller in the works? We hear you wonder—surely this is the oxymoron to end all oxymorons. Not even Ian Fleming could make golf sound exciting and by god he tried.
