Publisher's Summary

Palm Beach bon vivant and playboy sleuth Archy McNally returns in another tale of love and larceny among the wealthy denizens of south Florida.

Archy lives a life most people only dream about. As Chief of Discreet Inquiries at his father's white-shoe law firm, Archy keeps tabs on the rich and famous while keeping hours only a barfly could love. When well-to-do widow Edythe Westmore is urged to buy a Faberge Imperial egg, her adult offspring violently oppose the investment and enlist Archy¿s services to put the kibosh on the deal.

As he investigates the bona fides of the bejeweled trinket, mysterious machinations of the siblings, family advisors, and an aged antiques dealer are revealed, and Archy is thrust into a whirling vortex of greed, passion, and murder that even he must fight to rise above.

Mixing drama with highjinks, McNally's Gamble is Lawrence Sanders' most delectable offering yet.

What the Critics Say

"The witticisms are pitched just right. Mr. Sanders clearly delights in playing up the bumbling spoof aspects of this detective yarn, especially during its climactic but unavoidably funny denouement." (The New York Times Book Review)

    "A charming Detective tale"

    Few detective novels of the last thirty years are as entertaining as the Archy Mcnally series,a series of charming tales of a Palm Beach playboy and sleuth. This is one of the better ones in the collection. All the characters are well developed and the famous Mcnally wit is present throughout. Sometimes the story gets a little far fetched, but all in all this is a charming gumshoe tale.
