Family ties ensnare Lawrence Sanders's Archy McNally, "a raffish combination of Dashiell Hammett's Nick Charles and P. G. Wodehouse's Bertie Wooster" (The New York Times Book Review). Bestselling author Sabrina Wright wants dapper detective Archy McNally to find her husband, who vanished while looking for her MIA daughter—it may seem like a simple case, but McNally knows it's never that easy. Thirty-year-old Gillian Wright ran off to find her birth father, opening a Pandora's box of scandalous revelations the tabloids can't resist. It seems that Sabrina's life was a bigger fiction than her bodice-ripping romances. Before her story is over, three powerful men with damning secrets could be outed . . . and murder will be the denouement. As McNally stumbles on one cover-up after another, he has one last chance to catch a killer who will stop at nothing to protect his name.
