Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Lew Archer is hired to get the goods on the suspiciously suave Frenchman who's run off with his client's girlfriend, it looks like a simple case of alienated affections. Things look different when the mysterious foreigner turns out to be connected to a seven-year-old suicide and a mountain of gambling debts. Black Money is Ross Macdonald at his finest.

Review:

"A beautiful job...rich in plot and character... The denouement is both surprising and shocking and the whole is up to Mr. Macdonald's extraordinarily high standards." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"It was not just that Ross MacDonald taught us how to write; he taught us how to read, and how to think about life, and maybe in some small but mattering way, how to live." Robert B. Parker)
