Its quick pace and vocal clarity make this tale of murder and money easy and enjoyable to follow. In a light, jaunty baritone Boyd Gaines captures the light-hearted Archy McNally, who has been expelled from Yale Law for streaking and is acting for a third time as problem-solver for friend and foe. Gaines flattens his tone and broadens a Midwestern accent to create the local sheriff. For the villains he sharpens his voice. The women's voices are softer and breathy and, in one case, loaded with a Southern accent. The variety in Gaines's delivery enables the listener to identify the characters quickly and to delight in the details of Palm Beach society. M.G.S (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
