Sleeping Beauty
by Ross Macdonald

In Sleeping Beauty, Lew Archer finds himself the confidant of a wealthy, violent family with a load of trouble on their hands--including an oil spill, a missing girl, a lethal dose of drugs, a six-figure ransom, and a stranger afloat, face down, off a private beach.

Here is Ross Macdonald's masterful tale of buried memories, the consequences of arrogance, and the anguished relations between parents and their children. Riveting, gritty, tautly written, Sleeping Beauty is crime fiction at its best.

Ross Macdonald gave the American crime novel a psychological depth and moral complexity that others had only hinted at. And in the character of Lew Archer, Macdonald redefined a private eye who walks the frontier between criminal guilt and human sin.
