The unbeatable master of suspense returns in a wickedly wayward case of artists, models, and murder. Sanders' latest Palm Beach thriller fairly sizzles with greed, glitz, gals, and gore. And it proves, once again, that Arch McNally "is as amusing and rich as Dorothy Sayers' great creation, Lord Peter Wimsey".--Cosmopolitan.

Its quick pace and vocal clarity make this tale of murder and money easy and enjoyable to follow. In a light, jaunty baritone Boyd Gaines captures the light-hearted Archy McNally, who has been expelled from Yale Law for streaking and is acting for a third time as problem-solver for friend and foe. Gaines flattens his tone and broadens a Midwestern accent to create the local sheriff. For the villains he sharpens his voice. The women's voices are softer and breathy and, in one case, loaded with a Southern accent. The variety in Gaines's delivery enables the listener to identify the characters quickly and to delight in the details of Palm Beach society. M.G.S (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
