Can the game of golf resolve the issue?

From the first book in the Prairie Winds series, Lifetime Loser, author James Ross shows his penchant for exposing the bad guys—those unscrupulous and unsavory among us in the fields of real estate, law, accounting, and governance who play dirty politics and prey upon the well-intended but not-overly-astute average Joe. In Tuey’s Course, Ross ratchets up the heat and widens the gap between the haves and have-nots, shining a glaring light on a wider-than-you’d imagine ring of greed, power, and ...more

Recommends it for: nobody, ever.
As someone who doesn't work for Mr. Ross (see Barbara Milbourne and that first Sarah up there), or someone who hasn't received a free copy of this book and traded links with Mr. Ross (Sherry), I can give a more objective viewpoint of this book, I think.

First, I will share a few passages (which can be found on Mr. Ross's own website, so I'm not abusing privilege here):

“Uh few uh da guys wanted ta go golfin’,” Tuey responded as he

I always enjoy the opportunity to review more than one work by the same author. I am able to see the evolution of his writing as well as develop a better sense of what he is trying to accomplish through the sharing of his stories and characters. Tuey’s Course is the third book by author James Ross, with his previous publications, Lifetime Loser and Finish Line on the bookshelves last year and earlier this year, respectively. The Prairie Winds Golf Course serves as the consistent backdrop for all ...more

Tuey’s Course is the 3rd novel in James Ross’ series of 3 that showcase the human spirit, flaws, resilience and frailties using a golf course as a backdrop and plot enhancer. I have already registered my opinion on Ross’ first 2 novels; Lifetime Loser and The Finish Line.

This 3rd novel was not my favorite of the three but that does not mean you should ignore it. Ross again displays his adeptness at showing how the world of golf mirrors life in so many ways. This story is about a hapless and down

Tuey's Course by James Ross is the third of the Prairie Winds Golf Course series. It, though, has little to do with golf (and could use some more).

Tuey is a down and out African American man living in the inner city. He feels he is being targeted by a ruthless cop who is regularly fining him and his business for things that other businesses seem to get away with. When he can't get a fair hearing or even a sympathetic ear, he's driven to extreme measures.

I read the book against the context of som

This is the second in the series I have read. This book takes readers back to the Prairie wind Gold course and adds new characters to the others from book one. I found it a bit racist, but I think that may have been the author's point.Anyway, the book is an interesting look at people and the times we live in. I am going to read one more in this series. I think I liked this one a bit less than the first and hoping number three may be the lucky chair of the bunch.

Mark Twain, a distant relative, was a master of dialect. This is my attempt to portray various ethnic groups.

I'm a cancer survivor who had something to say. One story has become several novels from fictitious Prairie Winds Golf Course high atop the Mississippi river bluffs just east of St. Louis.

My stories are character-based with the genre being realistic fiction. My writing style utilizes the use of dialogue from an eclectic cast of characters. Aside from the recurring regulars roughly 20 new personali
