Strictly speaking, Lew Archer is only supposed to dig up the dirt on a rich man's suspicious soon-to-be son-in-law. But in no time at all Archer is following a trail of corpses from the citrus belt to Mazatlan. And then there is the zebra-striped hearse and its crew of beautiful, sunburned surfers, whose path seems to keep crossing the son-in-law's--and Archer's--in a powerful, fast-paced novel of murder on the California coast.

The writing in all Lew Archer books is excellent. The writing in this one is the best of the 8 I've read so far.

First published in 1962, "The Zebra-striped Hearse" is the 10th novel in the Lew Archer series. It has a delightfully complex plot. I would rate this novel at 4.25 stars.
