Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ross Macdonald is either part or wholly wizard. . .conjuring the magic of real mystery. . . . A masterpiece." --Chicago Tribune Book World

"
Sleeping Beauty is particularly complex and satisfactory. . . . It is a marvelous formula that Macdonald has found; the wonder is that he keeps improving it." --Newsweek

"Ross Macdonald remains the grandmaster, taking the crime novel to new heights by imbuing it with psychological resonance, complexity of story, and richness of style that remain inspiring." --Jonathan Kellerman


From the Trade Paperback edition.

From AudioFile

Ross Macdonald would have loved this dramatized version of his 1973 novel. Playing out the full array of California characters and his detective, Lew Archer, are an impressive cast. More than thirty actors participated in this distinctive production, directed by Harris Yulin. Ed Asner, Anthony Zerbe and Stacy Keach are just a few of the actors whose voices and names illuminate the cast. The dialogue is as snappy and fresh as MacDonald intended. As Archer, Yulin provides first-rate narrative integrated wonderfully with the dialogue of the characters. The program was serialized for broadcast, and remastered for the cassette version. R.F.W.
