A murderous maze of sun-drenched scandal…

When elegant, drop-dead gorgeous Theodosia Johnson steps ashore in Palm Beach, even the most jaded roving eyes stop to notice. Sophisticated champagne heir Chauncy Wilson Sackville-Hersforth is equally enchanted by this mysterious beauty, but when he proposes marriage to her, Chauncy’s mother isn’t nearly so impressed.

Archy McNally, the brilliant, blithe-spirited hero of McNally’s Luck and McNally’s Secret, returns to unravel the puzzle surrounding Miss Johnson. However, he too falls under her romantic spell … and bodies begin to appear like uninvited guests at a poolside dinner party.

Shocking, swank, and more fun than a weekend in Palm Beach, McNally’s Risk is full of sure-fire suspense that only Lawrence Sanders can deliver.

    " Archy McNally is Palm Beach's snob, satiric observer and sleuth. This is a fine summer read. Fast, funny and with just enough plot. "

    " Another enjoyable McNally book. If it weren't for the bizarre vocabulary and attire, I'd be just like McNally. These are fun, non-detective detective books. "

    " Another fun installment of Archy McNally, Palm Spring's sleuth-about-town; I luv Sanders writing, how he mixes a smart, suspenseful whodunit, with amusing prose and a smooth wit, and he does it best with his McNally books. "

    " What can't you love about these books - the food descriptions alone are enough to keep me reading. I listened to this one on a road trip and was surprised at the voiced they used for Archie. He was actually masculine. "
