Palm Beach is like Roman Polanski's Chinatown. You think you know what's going on, but, I guarantee, you don't. Palm Beach Confidential weaves a complex, twisted plot that plays out in a thrilling roller coaster climax. Myrkle deftly slides Mamie Roberts, the hip and slightly subversive art dealer with a libido in overdrive, into the Palm Beach sleuth niche vacated by Lawrence Sander's private detective, Archy McNally. Myrkle is obviously no stranger to the ritzy and wealthy domain of Palm Beach as well as its guarded secrets and back allies.
