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.… (més)

Ross MacDonald was a master at unraveling the twisted and intermingled minds of the southern California upper crust. Lew Archer would manage to reveal the killer by constant prying and making deductions from what he learned. Nothing was ever as it appeared. He was a terrific writer and this audiobook was spectacularly narrated, as always, by Jonathan Marosz. ( )

This detective/crime story was on my bookshelves, and I hope to eventually read all books and pass some on. I didn't care for this book, though I think some readers might like it. Copyright 1965. Several murders occur and a detective gets involved. People aren't who they seem to be. It's a good enough yarn for light reading. ( )

Lew Archer’s latest case seems to be fairly straightforward. His client, Peter Jamieson, was engaged to Virginia Fablon until she ended the relationship and left him for a French political refugee, Francis Martel. Jamieson isn’t convinced that Martel is who he says he is; Archer’s job is to look into Martel’s background and perhaps prevent Virginia from having her heart broken. But as Archer investigates the case, many hearts are about to be broken — and lives ended.

It’s always a treat to come back to a Lew Archer novel. Macdonald’s writing is elegant and understated, and Archer as a character is a relatively moderate example of a private investigator. It may help that he’s 50 years old, not about to run around on an impulse. He takes his time and weighs his options before taking action.

This story kept me guessing, even as I thought I’d called parts of it. It’s also a story that I’m not sure would be as successful if the characters lived in the present day—they’d have additional challenges posed by 21st-century technology and the internet. But as an example of 1960s noir, it’s a very good one. ( )

Another great book featuring the detective, Lew Archer. This time he's hired to find the girlfriend of his rich client. Set in the 1960's in Southern California. ( )
