Description
In The Far Side of the Dollar , private investigator Lew Archer is looking for an unstable rich kid who has run away from an exclusive reform school--and into the arms of kidnappers. Why are his desperate parents so loath to give Archer the information he needs to find him? And why do all trails lead to a derelict Hollywood hotel where starlets and sailors once rubbed elbows with two-bit grifters--and where the present clientele includes a brand-new corpse? The result is Ross Macdonald at his most exciting, delivering 1,000-volt shocks to the nervous system while uncovering the venality and depravity at the heart of the case.

display_descriptionThe once popular Barcelona Hotel is now boarded up. Starlets and Navy boys once rubbed shoulders there with tycoons and hustlers. Lewis Archer knows that twenty years ago a handful of dreamers and losers came together in the Barcelona. The question now is what kind of deal went down there, and why were a mixed-up rich kid and a beautiful blonde the first to pay the price?
