990 pages14 hours


More murder, greed, and secrets for the Palm Beach private eye created by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author and “master of suspense” (The Washington Post).
In his long-running, New York Times–bestselling mystery series set in South Florida, Edgar Award–winning author Lawrence Sanders gave readers “his most delightful character”—a charming playboy turned Palm Beach PI by the name of Archy McNally (Chicago Tribune).
McNally’s Gamble: In this New York Times bestseller, McNally is enlisted to verify the bona fides of a deal for a rare Fabergé Imperial egg. But when widow Edythe Westmore’s children become convinced the trinket is a fake and their mother is being conned, McNally cracks open a case of lust, greed, and murder that stinks like a rotten egg. Now the detective will have to scramble to lay a trap for someone who’s counting dividends before they hatch.
McNally’s Dilemma: In this New York Times bestseller, the Palm Beach tennis season starts off with a bang when a pro is shot by his wife after she catches him with another woman. Socialite Melva Williams confesses to offing her cheating spouse but wants her old friend Archy McNally to do her a favor: keep the press and paparazzi away from her beautiful daughter. The tempting Veronica is quite a handful, but more troubling is that her story and her mother’s don’t match.
McNally’s Folly: Golden Age Hollywood diva Desdemona Darling makes headlines when she agrees to star in the Palm Beach Community Theater’s production of Arsenic and Old Lace. McNally gets roped into directing while he’s discreetly investigating who’s blackmailing the actress. But after Darling’s Husband Number Seven sips some elderberry wine laced with arsenic at the cast party, McNally needs to shine a spotlight on the killer before it’s curtains for somebody else.
