    Silver Ghost Rolls In Faberge Egg. Roll The Dice

    This one opened with a fast-moving, jazzy rescue of a kidnaped child, capturing me with Archy¿s warmth to the victim¿s father, and the hint of a crime to come which was billed to be more heinous than a child kidnaping. Following quickly on the heals of the rescue, I settled into the main plot, riding along with Archy¿s loving machinations in prep for his father¿s birthday dinner, after which the family cocktail hour sported the pater¿s introduction to Archy of his new assignment. The mater was invited into the act by a request from her husband to describe how her friend and contemporary, Edythe Westmore, a client of the McNally law firm, seemed to have been taken in by a flimflam financial advisor with egg on his agenda, which would eventually be on his face, if justice prevailed and Archy¿s Discrete Investigations got a clue. No unsettling, Gothic castle with Adams family cast offs in this one. Whereas McNally¿s CAPER captured like a dark, luxuriously rich ale, GAMBLE captured with quality champagne easing the pain of a soured budget diminishing in a cash flop (executed by the financial wizard fop). Archy fizzed nicely through this plot with just the right amount of bubble and bounce, keeping the light hearted intrigue moving until the enigma-of-the-egg enhanced entertainment to arrive at an all time high in this series. One of Archy¿s enduring and endearing characters, the old, moldy, Antique shop owner, Sydney Smythe warmed his way into my heart in this one, worming in through a few choice words from Sanders describing Mr. Smythe¿s actions and reactions to Archy¿s interjections. It¿s amazing how much empathy for a character Sanders develops with light, limited touches of syntax, especially in contrast to the heavyweight, plethora of mouth-fulls he pours through Archy¿s mug. Given the entertaining way Archie danced his way through this plot labyrinth and its resolution, if GAMBLE were to become a movie, it may have to be billed as a complexly delightful musical, no con intended.
