Palm Beach’s premier man-about-crime plunges to the perilous depths of high society—in the loopiest Archy McNally thriller yet! If it were a soap opera, it might be called The Young and the Feckless. But McNally’s Caper is real-life, real-death family meshugass. The clan in question bears the proud name Forsythe, but the devious saga played out within the fortresslike walls of their baronial estate is far too raw ever to make it to Masterpiece Theatre. Called in by patriarch Griswold Forsythe II—a client of Archy’s father, who even the closemouthed senior McNally admits is pretty dull—our happy-go-lucky sleuth commences a covert search to discover which intimate relative is lifting the family valuables piece by piece. Before he solves that puzzle, Archy’s in for a sordid rainbow of surprises that gives the lie to the dynasty’s colorless repute. First there are the steamy Forsythe females hurling themselves his way. Then the buried scandals that keep bubbling up wherever he looks. But not until the murder of pater-familias do things finally boil over—into a white-hot crucible of corruption that menaces the guilty and the innocent alike. Mixing suspense, sensuality and high jinks with a Cordon Bleu chef’s expertise, Lawrence Sanders’ McNally’s Caper is a thoroughly delectable read.

    " I bought this because my husband likes the series. I find Archie and friends a little too much for me. I mean really get a life. I don't care what color shirt he wore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 9/23/2013

    " I learned AGAIN that Lawrence Sanders is one of my favorite authors. His Archy character is great. Wit and turn of phrase keeps the reader smiling. Sounds like someone you could actually know. "

    " I read this when I was younger so it didn't really hit home. Plus I hadn't read the other books in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 4/5/2013

    " Good McNally book, although these books are starting to seem quite formulaic. I'll try a few more, but hope they're different. Archy is every man's hero when it comes to sexual escapades and relationships, his style of dress sounds very metrosexual, at best. "
