In this Literary Guild selection, burying the dead takes on new meaning as greed and revenge rack up a body count . . . and no good deed goes unpunished Business is booming at Whitcomb Funeral Homes in southern Florida. Called in to investigate this inexplicable uptick, Palm Beach private investigator Archy McNally finds himself in the middle of a most unusual case. In the past six months, Whitcomb has shipped out five hundred dead bodies. Why are so many caskets leaving the Sunshine State and being airlifted to New York, Boston, and Chicago? And why did Whitcomb’s comely comptroller come to McNally & Son in the first place? Further complicating McNally’s life are his air-headed buddy, Binky Watrous, who wants to be his private-eye assistant, and his faithful love, Connie Garcia, who’s got her spies when it comes to McNally’s weakness for the ladies. Murder worthy of the headline Death-styles of the Rich and Famous add to McNally’s tribulations. And the next set of human remains could be his.
