Just.... the... BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!! I AM VERYVERYVERYVERY EXCITED TO GET THE FOURTH BOOK1!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHH!
No sooner had Ross McDonald produced his first classic Archer novel ("The Drowning Pool"), steeped in ancient sins and family wounds, than he turned around and fashioned a completely conventional but equally effective private eye novel, filled with wandering daughters, vicious gunsels, flamboyant crime bosses, femme fatales, and Lew Archer too, thoroughly at home in the hard boiled environment. The novel also contains some incidental cameos: a vibrant, garrulous old man on a porch, an alcoholic Hollywood actor too pretty and spineless for movies or life, the accomplished career woman who knows him and still loves him, and a divorced middle-aged woman on the rebound once again from a second marriage contracted days ago in Reno. Each of these characters is memorable and moving, giving us the sense of a rich, varied world beyond the lies and the gunfire.
