Palm Beach's premier man-about-crime returns in a delightfully raucous romp among South Florida's fabulous and felonious.
When Sabrina Wright - best selling author of sumptuous tales of loves lost and found - asks for Archy McNally's help in finding her missing husband, Archy quickly discovers it's not a simple domestic case. Sabrina's husband did not disappear; rather, her daughter Gillian ran off and Sabrina sent him to find Gillian - and he seems to have gotten lost, too.
Gillian Wright fled to Palm Beach when she learned the true story of her birth: that Sabrina had the baby out of wedlock, put her up for adoption, then adopted her. Sabrina never revealed the name of Gillian's father, having received a large sum of money to keep the whole thing quiet. But when local gossips get wind of the story, some very prestigious Palm Beach names seek the help of the posh resort's most discreet inquirer. When the gossip turns deadly, Archy must take a chance in order to unravel a 30-year old mystery while walking a tightrope between client confidentiality and justice.
