Just when you thought you knew all the dirt about Palm Beach ... Archy McNally returns to confront glitz, ghosts and gore in McNally's Luck, Lawrence Sanders's masterful new thriller. With McNally's Secret, Sanders fans were introduced to a south Florida sleuth whose high spirits and nose for clues endeared him to readers. Now diehard playboy Archy McNally is back, in a kinky caper the likes of which south Florida's elite has never seen. McNally's Luck begins as a search for a purloined pet but quickly becomes far more lethal. As investigator for his father's prestigious law firm, McNally regularly sees a side of elegant Palm Beach that's best described as seamy. But even he is shocked by the Pandora's box of lust and larceny slowly opening before him. On the heels of the catnapping, a prominent woman is brutally murdered, and in some cryptic way, the acts are linked. As he fits the many pieces of the puzzle into a single, lurid truth, Archy crosses paths with mediums, murderers, impostors and adulterers - and learns at an eerie seance that there are scandals even death can't hide. Intricate, unguessable, and sensual as a sultry Florida afternoon, McNally's Luck is blue-chip Lawrence Sanders
