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.

The funny thing about favours: sometimes they come back to haunt you. And Travis McGee owes a friend a big one. Little surprise that he finds himself on a trip to Hawaii to help out his friends daughter, who is convinced her husband is trying to kill her. But Travis cant find a single thing wrong and puts her paranoia down to simple anxiety. Its not until hes back home that he realises he may have overlooked a clue or two. And that she might be in very real danger . . .

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."
