McNally's Dare by Lawrence Sanders


Features
Hardcover (Large Print)

Book Description
The dowager duchess of Palm Beach dies, leaving behind a fabulous fortune and a handsome young heir-though Archy McNally has his doubts about the boy's bona fides.

When a young waiter working Malcolm "Nifty" MacNiff's annual Tennis Everyone! benefit is found dead in Nifty's otherwise pristine swimming pool, it's Archy McNally, South Florida's most famous Discreet Inquirer, who rushes in to salvage the town's reputation and solve the un-fortunate crime. Palm Beach is already in a tizzy over the arrival of its newest millionaire, Lance Talbot, just in from Switzerland to claim his inheritance after the demise of his grandmother.

There are those who believe Lance an imposter, and who he is-and was-becomes more of an enigma as Archy traces Lance's progress from the snowy Alps to the sands of Palm Beach. If he isn't the true heir, who is he? And who is the alluring Baroness Holga von Brecht, who is old enough to be his mother but claims to be his lover? When an old school chum of Holga's is made redundant, Archy must make some daring choices to snare a double murderer.

Reader Reviews
0 of 4 people found the following review helpful: Deceived, September 17, 2003 Reviewer: W. F. Benton from Columbus, Georgia United States Have enjoyed many of the books by Lawrence Sanders. I had not realized he had died in 1998. I purchased "McNally,s Dare" because Lawrence Sanders' name was so prominently displayed on the cover. Looked great, I haven't read him in years. I know now why, and think it is intellectually dishonest as well as a cheap ploy at the expence of his name. I will admit it was my mistake and one not to be repeated. I only made it through a couple of chapters to realize Mr. Lardo is no Mr. Sanders and probably explains the deception. I won't make that mistake again. --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition
