This is welcome news. I finished BLACK MONEY just yesterday, on MacDonald's birthday.

Looking forward to discussing it with everyone. For my money (no pun intended) it stands up to MacDonald's best (including THE CHILL, THE ZEBRA-STRIPED HEARSE, THE WYCHERLY WOMAN, THE GOODBYE LOOK, and THE GALTON CASE). A very satisfying read.

All the Best-
