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!

I've read this clunker twice over the years, tempted by the cover, a sucker for a good noire story, and wanting to give RM one more chance. This one is so tedious, awash in uninteresting characters, virtually no action, and a convoluted story. It almost seems like it was written by a computer algorithm. It just goes on and on without spice or dramatic punctuation. Really truly don't bother.
