A novel by

 
 
"My favorite novelist of all time"
-Dean Koontz

"To diggers a thousand years from now . . . the works of John D. MacDonald would be a treasure on the order of the tomb of Tutankhamen."
-Kurt Vonnegut


Travis McGee is summoned to Arizona by a rich, beautiful arrogant woman. And then she's dead - shot in the back at long range, lying crumpled on the ground at his feet.

With the would-be client eliminated, and on a dime's worth of fee in his pocket, any ordinary detective would walk away fast. But Travis McGee is no ordinary detective.
