Quick, easy reading

If you enjoy suspense mixed with a bit of humor, you will enjoy this compilation & its main character, McNally. These books are fun & easy to read. Recommend it for when you are seeking something not so heavy, but still want to be captivated & on your toes.

The 1st,, 2nd & 3rd deadly sins

I haven't finished reading the 3rd as of yet. And so far the indvidual 4th deadly sin is my favorite with the 1st also excellant. The only disappointment so far was the 2nd which really took too long to develop.

Hilarious Investigation by Binky Watrous on Archy's Behalf

If you've read the Archy McNally books, you know he has a slightly daft friend who does bird calls, Binky Watrous. In this wonderful installment, McNally's Puzzle, Binky goes undercover at a bird store called Parrots Unlimited to find out who is threatening the store's owner, Hiram Gottschalk. Sancho Panza is a motivational consultant compared to Binky, and the complications are hilarious. You'll laugh until it hurts! Before long, bodies are piling up in all directions. Who did it? Here's a clue. The book's cover has a parrot on it. If you pay attention to the parrot, you'll get some important leads on who the guilty parties are. Archy McNally is at his usual prissy best, more concerned about his wardrobe than the mystery. The ladies find him irresistible, and he feels obliged to help out. This gets him into trouble, as usual, with his main squeeze, Connie. The actual plot is full despicable double-dealing. You'll be glad when the bad guys get it. Great fun!

Archy McNally-everyone's favorite playboy

If you've never read a McNally book before, try this set of three, because if you read one, you'll want to read more. Witty, charming, and as morally reprehensible as we'd all like to be, Archy McNally is the type of fascinating character you wish was real, just so you could take him out for drinks.

Entertaining detective fiction

This is a reprint of the first three books in the Archic McNally series when the characters were still fresh. The characters wear a bit thin in some later books of the series. The main player is Archie McNally, a modern day Bertie Wooster, who carries out investigations for his father's Palm Beach law firm when he is not chasing women or hanging out at the Pelican Club. He has a taste for fine dining and fashionable clothes (but does not wear socks), and dashes about in his red Miata, mixing pleasure with work. His investigations bring him into contact with a broad spectrum of society, from the successful to the dysfunctional, old money, new money, and working stiffs. The plots and the various characters are well developed.
