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, Ross Macdonald's private eye 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 this powerful, fast-paced novel of murder on the California coast.

"Macdonald is one of the elite in hard-boiled mystery fiction. In his tenth book (1962), he again indulges us with the moody, smart-mouthed, introspective character of PI Lew Archer. The story--mostly set in Southern California--takes us inside people's lives--we get to know them and sympathize with some of them. Tom Parker's flat middle-American voice is well suited to the characterizations in this book. Parker's rendition is a first-class reading. D.R.W. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
