My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love this author and this latest Archer thriller doesn’t disappoint. I love the way he paints the period — 1953– with references to the day’s entertainers like Frank Sinatra, current movies being made like “Rear Window” and the fashions. But like always he outdoes himself creating a convoluted tale where nothing is what it seems. Archer is in LA visiting friend Liberty Callahan when one of Liberty’s Hollywood connections goes missing and a body is found at her home. Archer pieces it all together but not before almost getting killed, of course. Even though the story happens long ago the characters seem very today.
