    " I've determined that although I like Lawrence Sanders' books in general, I'm not a big fan of the McNally series. This is probably the last McNally novel I will read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Virginia Markhart | 8/16/2013

    " This book was very good. It kept my attention well. The style was very different and I had to pay attention. It took me a long time to read it, not because I wasn't interested, but I had a lot going on. I liked the relationship between the father and son. I loved the new pet, HOBO, the hero!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 4/24/2013

    " I couldn't wait to read this because my husband laughed out loud the whole time he was reading. What a disappointment. Protagonist lives with his parents and is very self obsessed. I couldn't wait to be done with the book. I won't bother to read another of this series. "

    " Archy McNally is back, the spoiled playboy of South Florida who seems to solve mysteries in spite of himself and his inept sidekick Binky.

    " Abridged audio book I got in the proverbial library book sale. Enjoyable listening in the car. I'm not sure an unabridged version would have been any better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 10/29/2011

    " Great story, clear and generally believable. Archy can be pretty tough on Binky, he puts him down a lot. I wish Archy didn't dress like such a metrosexual/gay, I wish he didn't smoke and his eating habits are beyond me. Other than that, he's my idol. Well, I'm glad I don't live with my parents, too. "

    " The McNally series is always a treat. I have read almost every book, and still trying to find a couple. Also listened to a few on the audiobooks format, which fulfilled my imagine of Archy. "
