Have you ever gone back to your home town, back to the street where you grew up only to find that the beautiful old house where you spent the best years of your childhood is now a meth house If you have, you know something of the feeling I got from what little bit of this piece of junk I managed to read I think I only got to about 15% before I had to either stop reading or seek the advice of a mental health professional.Lawrence Sanders McNally books are fun, irrevent, and a perfect way to spend [...]
Not a bad story it was my first in the series , but the author s thesaurus must be worn out after using a 5 word every time a 2 one would do Perhaps his use of unnecessary vocabulary is explained in an earlier book in the series.
view spoiler I found this story interesting mostly because of what I think it did wrong rather than what it did right The plot was fairly interesting, dealing with a woman who convinced three different men that they were the father of her child and essentially blackmailed child support out of all three But the plot was lost in the background trivia and at least 1 silly subplot The author tried so hard to be cute and funny that he lost sight of the fact that the book was supposed to be a mystery [...]

A very well written suspense thriller I found this book at a second hand book store I had never read any of the Archy McNally books before, but I will have to get some of these Vincent Lardo is a wonderful author who really knows how to weave a story together
There is something odd about Vincent Lardo s writing style I think he dwells too much on describing interiors, the food, the clothes, etc I had to skim some of these because the lines tend to drag StillI like Archy and his quirky and fun ways.
I love this series and find all of them fun not very deep but I really like Archy and his family
I really like this series
Another good chapter in the Archy McNally story Light detective story with a fair share of humor
Tenth in series
While Mr Lardo has taken the Arch McNally series in a bit of a new direction, this and his prior effort has retained the essence of the characters Mr Sanders created, which I have enjoyed.
A fun romp.
I figured it outLardo doesn t have the same jolly spirit as Sanders did and it translate into Archy McNally.
Not my favorite Some good Archy isms, but the story was a little weak Mr Lardo has picked up on some Archy and his last story was really well done But this one, ahh not so much.
Spring Break had long and unintended consequences While Archy does not resolve the big question, he did manage to solve a confusing murder.
Too much emphasis on haberdashery and epicurean cuisine.

Archy is a very flamboyant and entertaining character these make for great summer reads I have read them all.
This was better than the one I read before.
Another Archy McNally, funny, glib murder mystery involving the affluentelite in Palm Beach.
Car book It was poorly edited McNally is quite a character Amusing.
