About this title


Tie into this month's Toby Peters mystery hardcover, The Devil Met a Lady, with his 16th adventure. Surrealist painter Salvador Dali enlists Toby's help in retrieving three stolen paintings--from thieves Dali hired as a publicity stunt.

From AudioFile:

Written in a style similar to Dashiell Hammett's, this Toby Peters crime story is read with the panache and drama of the strong, silent type. Reminding one of Humphrey Bogart when he played Philip Marlowe in The Big Sleep, Parker, with tongue firmly in cheek, reads Kaminsky's succinct descriptions of the quirky Salvador Dali and his entourage; listeners can almost hear him drag on a cigarette and see it dangling from his lip. Set in wartime L.A., the story draws Toby into a bizarre art world of mustaches without faces, crumbling stone women and melting watches. This one keeps listeners tuned in for the big finish. S.C.A.
