About the book

Travis McGee isnt your typical knight in shining armour. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: Hell help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.

Travis McGee receives an unexpected guest, Harry Broll, who is convinced that hes hiding his missing wife. The desperate man gets off a shot before Travis can wrestle his gun away. Worried that hes losing his touch, Travis decides to get Harry off his case and prove hes still in top form in one fell swoop.

Traviss search for the missing woman takes him to Grenada, where hes soon tangling with con artists and killers. No longer wallowing in self-pity, Travis has more pressing concerns like saving his own skin.

About the Author

John D. MacDonald

John D. MacDonald was an American writer of novels and short stories, known for his thrillers.

MacDonald was a prolific author of crime and suspense novels, many of them set in his adopted home of Florida. One of the most successful American novelists of his time, MacDonald sold an estimated 70 million books in his career. His best-known works include the popular and critically acclaimed Travis McGee series, and his 1957 novel The Executioners.

In 1972, the Mystery Writers of America bestowed upon MacDonald its highest honor, the Grand Master Award for lifetime achievement and consistent quality. Stephen King praised MacDonald as "the great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller." Kingsley Amis said, MacDonald "is by any standards a better writer than Saul Bellow, only MacDonald writes thrillers and Bellow is a human-heart chap, so guess who wears the top-grade laurels."

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
