In this eighth installment of the Archy McNally series, Archy, a charming cad of a gumshoe, tackles two cases simultaneously. One is a blackmail scheme; the other is helping a friend accused of murdering her philandering husband. The cases, all set in the empty, slimy world of the Palm Springs jetset, seem to be unrelated, until... Gaines performs well in this abridgment, giving McNally a smooth, understated baritone that is never flustered. Other characters are given distinct voices that add to the performances, keeping it interesting and moving the action along. The cast is colorful, and the plot is intriguing.
