McNally's Trial is a sequel book about Discreet Inquiror, Archy McNally. Archy is a bon vivant playboy who investigates for his father's clients. This time he is approached because a client's funeral homes are making too much money.
There are the requisite slime balls,beautiful women and rich folk. Archy, this time takes on an unpaid assistant,Binky. Binky is a dolt who somehow manages to help and not deep six the investigation.
Sanders actually had me wondering for a while with this one. One can not help but like Arch, rogue that he is and smile at some of the situations he finds himself in.
