Publisher's Summary

When Lew 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.

"The finest series of detective novels ever written by an American." ( The New York Times)
"A beautiful 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)

Good book, great reader

Ross Macdonald is a personal favourite of mine and I am happy his novels are available as audiobooks. Black Money is not one of the greatest Lew Archer novels but it is interesting enough, especially when you are interested in private-eye tales of the Golden Era. Grover Gardner is a perfect reader for this genre, hearing his voice, Lew Archer comes to live right before your eyes. And since these books are full of dialogue, Gardner masters all characters and accents, social classes and etnic accents. I was very pleased with this book and only hope Audible gives access to more of the Ross Macdonald/Lew Archer novels; There are sixteen but only eight are available for members from Europe. A shame!

Solid Mystery

Decent flow and build up of characters. The twist/solution was pretty good.

I'd listen to almost anything Grover Gardner narrates.
