When Archer is hired to get the goods on the suspiciously suave Frenchman who’s run off with his client’s girlfriend, it looks like a simple case of alienated affections. Things look different when the mysterious foreigner turns out to be connected to a seven-year-old suicide and a mountain of gambling debts. Black Money is Ross Macdonald at his finest, baring the skull beneath the suntanned skin of Southern California’s high society.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A beautiful job…rich in plot and character…The denouement is both surprising and shocking and the whole is up to Mr. Macdonald’s extraordinarily high standards.” New York Times Book Review
“Grover Gardner’s voice is clear and tough, a natural for the hard-boiled first-person narrative. Macdonald’s story—involving gambling debts, murder, sex, and blackmail—is as satisfyingly gritty as one expects…Gardner’s narration makes it all lively and fresh, rather than a nostalgic relic.” AudioFile
“Ross Macdonald is one of the greatest American noir novelists, and this is arguably his best…Macdonald’s writing describes character, setting, atmosphere, and dialog with enormous depth, insight, and style. Master professional narrator Grover Gardner, who becomes each carefully drawn character and captures the exact mood and the many varied accents in the dialog, is outstanding here…A classy narrator in a classic of the genre. Five stars!” SoundCommentary.com
“Lew Archer is as much of an institution as Perry Mason…It’s a thinking man’s murder mystery.” Kirkus Reviews
