Strictly speaking, Lew Archer is only supposed to dig up the dirt on a rich man's suspicious soon-to-be son-in-law. But in no time at all Archer is following a trail of corpses from the citrus belt to Mazatlan. And then there is the zebra-striped hearse and its crew of beautiful, sunburned surfers, whose path seems to keep crossing the son-in-law's--and Archer's--in a powerful, fast-paced novel of murder on the California coast.… (més)

One of the women narrating needs to brush up on her pronunciation - camino real is not KAMino reel. Silly. Otherwise it's great so far, Asner delivers Lew's 1st person narration as well as his dialog, and everyone else does other parts. Good music and sound effects. I kind of wish all the Archer books were done this way. ( )

To begin, I started reading this book right after I came back from Lake Tahoe, and I was tickled to find that LT figured so prominently in this story! And what a story! More twists and turns than the I-50! MacDonald gives us at least four possible killers, with several characters acting suspicious, and seemingly has three on the hook until the end! I had no idea who done it! AND, that ol' zebra-striped hearse driving about through it all! No one is really a good guy in his, other than Lew Archer - the Blackwells, Damis, Campion, - they all kind of suck. And LOTS of mysteries - who is the baby's father? why did this person marry that person? what is that guy's real name? And, of course, who killed who?! Join Archer in his investigation in L.A., L.T., the O.C., and down in Mexico. It's a very good read! ( )

Col. Mark Blackwell is taking parental protection to a whole new level when he hires Lew Archer to check out his prospective son-in-law. Blackwell is convinced that this guy is no good, whereas Archer will take the case only on the condition that he be allowed to carry out his work impartially and without preconceptions. But very quickly he racks up a trail of murder, false identity and buried secrets. And what's with this zebra-striped hearse that keeps showing up?

As far as Archer cases go, this has an interesting premise but suffers from being a bit repetitive as Archer constantly has to fill in everyone he talks to about what he's just learned. (Come on guys, read the book and follow along! Stop making him have to explain everything.) Also, the hearse does not show up nearly as often as its place in the title would have you believe, which is mildly disappointing.

This would probably make a good second or third book to read, but not an introduction to the series. ( )

An excellent PI Novel with its share of nail biting suspense intact. Ross Macdonald is a fabulous writer with an excellent prose and depictions of characters, their moral dilemmas all authentically brought out.. ( )
