âAs a young writer, all I ever wanted was to touch readers as powerfully as John D. MacDonald touched me.â â Dean Koontz
Travis McGeeâs old football buddy Tush Bannon is resisting pressure to sell off his floundering motel and marina to a group of influential movers and shakers. Then heâs found dead. For a big man, Tush was a pussycat: devoted to his wife and three kids and always optimistic about his businessâeven when things were at their worst. So although his death is ruled a suicide, McGee suspects murder...and a vile conspiracy.
âTravis McGee is the last of the great knights-errant: honorable, sensual, skillful, and tough.â â Donald Westlake
Tush Bannon was in the wrong spot at the wrong time. His measly plot of land just so happened to sit right in the middle of a rich parcel of five hundred riverfront acres that big-money real estate interests decided they simply must have.
It didnât matter that Tush was a nice guy with a family, or that he never knew he was dealing with a criminal element. They squashed him like a bug and walked away, counting their change. But one thing they never counted on: The gentle giant had a not-so-gentle friend in Travis McGee. And now heâs going to make them pay.
âJohn D. MacDonald was a writer way ahead of his time, and his Travis McGee books are as entertaining, insightful, and suspenseful today as the moment I first read them.â â John Saul
