Forgettable? Yeah, Like A Savory Rich Desert!
Probably next week Archy McNally's "Adventure of the Inverted Jennies" will flow completely out of my memory. So what? There are deserts that were so delightful I'll recommend them to everyone who asks. Deserts don't change lives. Don't direct or even inform them. But they can be delightful, huh?
That's what this craftily prepared story is… Archy lives in a note-perfect, imaginary culture that evokes Fred and Ginger twirling through platinum and crystal settings. Victor Bevine ices Sanders' cake thick with stylish characters who you'll see and hear and enjoy.
I'm off to download another order of Archy from the Lawrence Sanders' section of the Audio bookshelf. Dunno about you, but I may not remember the details of a perfect desert, yet when I see it on the menu, I'll order it quicker than the summer heat rises in posh Boca Raton.
One word for this book…. "Yummy!"

Great McNally book; uninspiring performance
Any additional comments?
The McNally series is always good for a nice entertaining adventure and this book offers a good story with the usual dose of McNally humor.
Unfortunately, the performance is really not good. To be fair to the narrator, there is nothing particularly wrong about his performance, but if you have listened to any of the McNally book narrated by Adam Henderson, you would this performance pales in comparison. While Adam Henderson brilliantly portrays the edgy character and witty humor, the performance in this book simply falls flat. I was very happy that Audible decided to produce the McNally series, since I have been unable to find many of the books in unabridged format, but I am very disappointed by the choice of narrator.
