From a beloved master of crime fiction, The Green Ripper is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat.
Travis McGee has known his share of beautiful girls, but true love always passed him byâuntil Gretel. Life aboard the Busted Flush has never been so sweet. But suddenly, Gretel dies of an unidentified illnessâor so heâs told. Convinced that the woman who stole his heart has been murdered, McGee finds himself pursuing a less-than-noble cause: revenge.
âTo diggers a thousand years from now, the works of John D. MacDonald would be a treasure on the order of the tomb of Tutankhamen.ââKurt Vonnegut
McGee has lost not only the love of his life but also his last hope for stability. Soon grief turns to blinding rage. So when he finds the people responsible for Gretelâs death, McGee goes off the railsâand off the grid, three thousand miles from home.
McGee emerges in the California woods as Tom McGraw, a fisherman looking for his long-lost daughter. This mysterious newcomer starts knocking off targets one by one. But as he pursues his single-minded crusade for justice, he becomes more and more unhinged. McGee has spent his life saving other people, but now heâll need to find the strength to save himselfâbefore he loses his mind.
