Here is my best explanation:

'book' is the definition.
(Charles Dickens' The Mystery of Edwin Drood)

'senior hack and trendy medic into golf club' is the wordplay.
'senior hack' becomes 'ed' (short for editor - hack can mean journalist).
'and' says to put letters next to each other.
'trendy medic' becomes 'indr' (I can't justify this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'into' indicates putting letters inside.
'golf club' becomes 'wood' (I've seen this before).
'indr' placed into 'wood' is 'windrood'.
'ed'+'windrood'='EDWIN DROOD'
