"A group of erstwhile members of the Brokenwood Golf Club, committee members no less, have gathered for their regular Wednesday morning round. They are playing their approaches to the first green when a zombie-like figure lurches from the early-morning gloom, coming towards them. It takes the golfers a moment or two (apparently) to realise this is actually Adele Stone, the Club owner - her face red and blistering; gasping desperately for breath. Then she falls from sight, into a greenside bunker. By the time the guys get to her, Ms Stone is very much dead. And so Mike and Kristin are called to investigate what appears to be homicide by poisoning."

Initially this would seem to be just another tragic hunting accident amidst picturesque New Zealand bush. The only problem is none of the remaining three friends own up to pulling the trigger that fired the lethal bullet - yet all three had discharged their rifles \u2013 with no deer to prove it. The question is \u2013 who shot Hayden Renner? Was he mistaken for a real stag or was there something more sinister at play?"

But amidst this DSS Mike Shepherd is perplexed by several other issues. Firstly, why was a pair of women\u2019s underwear stuffed down Arnie\u2019s throat?
