Next time someone who doesn't read mysteries asks where they should start, point them toward Ross Macdonald. Luckily, Vintage/Black Lizard is reprinting several of Macdonald's classic Lew Archer novels in handsome new quality paperback versions. If Black Money
(or the other two books in the current series, The Drowning Pool
and The Chill
) don't have them panting for more, they're probably hopeless cases.

Published in 1965, 1963, and 1950, respectively, this trio feature Macdonald's hard-boiled private detective Lew Archer. The plots involve murder, deceit, blackmail, sex, and all those other goodies that make for great crime stories.
