From a beloved master of crime fiction, The Dreadful Lemon Sky is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat.
Around four in the morning, Travis McGee is jarred awake by a breathless ghost from his past: an old flame who needs a place to stash a package full of cash. Whatâs in it for McGee? Ten grand and no questions asked. Two weeks later, sheâs dead.
âThe Travis McGee novels are among the finest works of fiction ever penned by an American author.ââJonathan Kellerman
Carolyn Milligan was only aboard McGeeâs boat for one night. She came to drop off a hundred grand for safekeeping. What Carrie really needed was someone to keep her safe. She said sheâd be back in a month. Instead Carrie is killed in a dubious roadside accident. Now McGee is left with a fortuneâand a nagging conscience.
So McGee takes a trip to the seedy little town of Bayside, Florida, to look into Carrieâs life before she showed up on his boat. What McGee finds only pushes him further into the corrupt world of drugs and blood that Carrie was trying to escape. McGee is used to high stakes, but when the bodies start piling up, even he may be in over his head.
