He was clad in his usual plus fours, argyle hose, and spectator wing tips in brown and beige. He had added the hand-knitted sweater-mother’s birthday gift to him. I noted the pater wore it with cuff. rolled up to his elbows to conceal those mismatched sleeves. A lesser man might have looked ridiculous in such a costume but the guv, with his erect posture and guardsman’s mustache, carried it off with great dignity.

This seventh installment of the Archie McNally series is -- like the earlier ones -- enjoyable and diverting. It is also the last one that was written by Lawrence Sanders, who died the year after "Gamble" was published. And it is well worth reading. It's Archie's personality that makes the series, and it is in full bloom in this installment. The plot, however, was less intriguing and more predictable than the in the two previous novels, which is why four stars instead of five. Had there only been more and more and more ......

This is another book about Archie McNally, a modern day Bertie Wooster. I personally did not think this book was as good as some of the previous books, but possibly I have just grown tired of some of the characters. The lead-in is somewhat tedious as the plot develops slowly. This story reminds me of talking to someone who has trouble getting to the point, i.e., the person you try to avoid at a party. Sanders reuses a ploy used in a previous book, a shady investment advisor, although in this case it has a new twist. The book is written in first person and he seems to fill in a lot of space with minute details about the narrator. The second half of the book develops at a faster pace, with less of the excruciating detail of what type of jam Archie uses on his toast, and it becomes a more readable book, but only after one has plowed through the first half.

Few writers are as insightful about how an inquisitive mind works while managing to entertain and amuse you. Too bad he's gone.

This one opened with a fast-moving, jazzy rescue of a kidnaped child. Following quickly on the heals of the rescue, the main plot makes itself known after his father's birthday dinner, during the family cocktail hour which the pater introduced Archy to his new assignment. Given the entertaining way Archie danced his way through this plot labyrinth and its resolution, it will hold the read throughout. Well worth your time.
