Pony's One Trick's Gotten Old

Archie McNally's ridden in the car with me to vacations. This was the fifth, and maybe the last time. From the begining, the plot & why-dunnit's were obvious as a gold-digger's cleavage. Mr. Sander's imagination for mystery's gone flaccid. And Archie McNally, a young man trapped in the body of an old man, has become... well... old.

Worse yet, Sander's introduced a new character in "Trial" and that Binky guy's... well insufferable. His every appearance in the story wrenched me out of it, totally aware that Sanders was trying out writers' tricks. I'd rather he learn on someone else's Audible credit.

As usual, Victor Bevine's slick talent for doing voices, particularly Consuela's (Archie's girlfriend) almost saved this book... But after 4 other Archy adventures, well new words pasted over the identical melody were as boring, sometimes as painful, as hearing a song you once liked, played too many times.

Maybe a couple of years from now I'll give Archy McNally another visit. And maybe I'll replay an old recording I grew tired of... Maybe...

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
