Summary : From a beloved master of crime fiction, The Girl in the Plain Brown Wrapper is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat. He had done a big favor for her husband, then for the lady herself. Now she's dead, and Travis McGee finds that Helena Pearson Trescott had one last request of him: to find out why her beautiful daughter Maureen keeps trying to kill herself. But what can a devil-may-care beach bum do for a young troubled mind? “The Travis McGee novels are among the finest works of fiction ever penned by an American author.”—Jonathan Kellerman McGee makes his way to the prosperous town of Fort Courtney, Florida, where he realizes pretty quickly that something's just not right. Not only has Maureen's doctor killed herself, but a string of murders and suicides are piling up—and no one seems to have any answers. Just when it seems that things can't get any stranger, McGee becomes the lead suspect in the murder of a local nurse. As if Maureen didn't have enough problems, the man on a mission to save her will have to save himself first—before time runs out. Features a new Introduction by Lee Child

Summary : 'MacDonald had a huge influence on me . . . Reacher is like a fully detached version of Travis McGee' LEE CHILD Travis McGee isn’t your typical knight in shining armour. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: He’ll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half. When Travis McGee enters the prosperous town of Fort Courtney he quickly realises that something’s not quite right. Here to rescue the suicidal daughter of a deceased friend, Travis is shocked by the string of murders and suicides that is taking over the town. Then, just when it seems that things can’t get any stranger, Travis becomes the lead suspect in the murder of a local nurse. To save the young woman, he’s going to have to save himself first . . .

I envy the generation of readers just discovering Travis McGee' - Sue Grafton 'The consummate pro, a master storyteller and witty observer . . .

Fletcher and Jane Wyatt have been married for fifteen years. Together they have built an enviable life, complete with two wonderful children and a warm, beautiful home.

Summary : This work explores John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee series, with special emphasis on MacDonald's examination of the conflicts and joys of twentieth-century American culture and society. MacDonald describes himself as a moralist and this, combined with his narrative gifts, infuses his ever-present concerns for the quality and durability of American life. The first and last chapters, respectively, discuss MacDonald's early novels and the four he wrote concurrently with the series. The remaining chapters analyze various themes that figure prominently in the series. MacDonald's thinking reflects many of the concerns of his fellow citizens during his writing career while revealing his own personal reaction to the society around him. Noting his sense of an uncaused evil in the world and his prolific inventiveness, this work examines MacDonald's narrative exploration of America in which he reveals an unwillingness to give up either his frequently pessimistic views of society or the hope that it can somehow continue. His posthumous Reading for Survival sounds the latter note in typical MacDonald fashion: Read and learn or die. McGee, in the hard-boiled detective tradition, exemplifies MacDonald's picture of the struggling, but coping, culture with no guarantees for the future.

Summary : Clemmie, one of many classic novels from crime writer John D. MacDonald, the beloved author of Cape Fear and the Travis McGee series, is now available as an eBook. Married, straitlaced, and struggling to rise out of middle management, Craig Fitz is stuck in a life of boredom and routine—until he meets the irresistible Clemmie Bennet. A rich girl who plays by her own rules, Clemmie is the shot in the arm Craig has been looking for. She gives him his first taste of what it’s like to live on the edge—and it’s intoxicating. But beneath her fun-loving, thrill-seeking facade, this intoxicating sex kitten is an unpredictable terror. And the deeper he falls into Clemmie’s nightmarish games, the closer Craig comes to losing everything: his family, his career, even his life.

Summary : From a beloved master of crime fiction, Pale Gray for Guilt is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat. Travis McGee’s 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 he’s found dead. For a big man, Tush was a pussycat: devoted to his wife and three kids and always optimistic about his business—even when things were at their worst. So even though his death is ruled a suicide, McGee suspects murder . . . and a vile conspiracy. “As a young writer, all I ever wanted was to touch readers as powerfully as John D. MacDonald touched me.”—Dean Koontz 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 didn’t 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 he’s going to make them pay. Features a new Introduction by Lee Child
