First in the series starring the sleuthing Palm Beach playboy from the #1 New York Times–bestselling and Edgar Award–winning author.
Inveterate playboy Archy McNally gets paid to make discreet inquiries for Palm Beach’s power elite. But keeping their dirty little secrets buried will take some fancy footwork in McNally’s latest case. A block of priceless 1918 US airmail stamps has gone missing from a high-society matron’s wall safe. Lady Cynthia Horowitz, now on her sixth husband, is a nasty piece of work who lives in a mansion that looks like Gone With the Wind’s Tara transplanted to southern Florida. McNally’s search takes him into a thickening maze of sex, lies, scandal, and blackmail. When passion erupts into murder and McNally must dig even deeper to uncover the truth, he unearths a shocking secret that could expose his own family’s skeletons.

A fun read with good plot twists and better vocabulary than many.
I too read these books in a while ago. The series, along with this book, was good. Light reading and kept your interest. A fun read. If I didn't still have the book sitting in my bookcase, I would buy it and read again it on my iPad which I prefer. I am glad to see in as an e-book.

Loved his books. I think I read them all years ago. Glad to see them available again.
