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

Timothy's game by Lawrence Sanders( Book )

48 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 2,301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wall Street's premier detective is back, matching wits with a whole new cast of deadly sinners. The dark side of New York's financial district is where the top guns and the lowlifes are often interchangeable. And nobody knows it better than Timothy Cone. He's the stock-market op who can spot a scam from clear across town. That's Timothy's game, and he's a master of it. Timothy's not the best-dressed guy in the world, and he wouldn't make it through a temperance meeting, but he's got physical skills he picked up in Nam and a mind that's sharper than a shiv. He's also got a moth-eaten cat, with whom he enjoys a purely gustatorial relationship, and a pistol of a girlfriend, who's also his boss. Cone's definitely one of a kind, as are the uniquely complex cases he tackles as he plies his trade. For instance, there's the insidertrading leak, involving purloined garbage, mob rubouts, and a spirited gangster's daughter who takes the Market for a long and larcenous ride... Plus the massacre of the megalomaniac entrepreneur. Everybody hated him, but only one person had him hit. What was the motive --business or pleasure? Plus the mysterious run on the stock of a Chinese food firm, which quickly becomes a farrago of gangland rivalries, bent passions, and intimate betrayals... From tong sieges in Chinatown to Fifth Avenue penthouses to the twisting byways of Wall Street itself, Timothy's Game is as compelling a portrait of New York --from the bottom of the barrel to the top of the heap-- as any you've encountered. In addition to mixing great characters, fascinating settings, and puzzler plots into an intoxicating cocktail, Lawrence Sanders has given us yet another memorable sleuth." --On the flaps
