There's no risk of boredom here. An entertaining performance is guaranteed. In this latest recording in the Archy McNally series, our hero, who works as an investigator for his lawyer father, is called upon by an immensely wealthy Palm Beach mother to inquire into the bona fides of her nitwit son's fiancée--a topless car wash attendant. (This is Florida, after all.) During his probe, Archy encounters bodies galore--all somehow connected to the bride-to-be. The comic lines are fast and furious. Adam Henderson plays the understated Archy as both tongue in cheek and exuberant of voice. He delivers not only a perfect Archy but a host of wacky-voiced characters as well. A.L.H.
