Synopsis: ?John D. MacDonald is a shining example for all of us in the field. Talk about the best.? ? Mary Higgins Clark Asking for help is something a proud man like Van Harder would never do. So when he shows up at the Busted Flush, Travis McGee knows that he must be the man?s last resort. What Harder wants salvaged is his reputation. After a long career as a seaman, he was piloting a boat the night his employer fell overboard. Harder is certain he?s been set up, but to help him, McGee must prove that a dead man is actually alive. ?John D. MacDonald was the great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller.? ? Stephen King The fateful ride started with Harder at the helm of Hubbard Lawless?s luxury cruiser. It ends with him coming to, fuzzy and disoriented, and Hub lost to the water. Now everyone is saying that Harder got drunk, passed out, and is negligent in his boss?s death. The thing is, Van?s not a drinker . . . at least, not anymore. Who would want to frame the good captain, and to what end? Dead or alive, Lawless is worth a lot of money. People are always eager to get a piece of that action ? including some, as McGee soon finds, who are willing to take a piece out of anyone who gets in their way. ?John 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.? ? John Saul
"The professional's professional of suspense writers."
THE NEW YORK TIMES
Van Harder, once a hard drinker, has found religion. But that doesn't keep folks from saying he murdered his employer, Hub Lawless, whose body hasn't been found. To clear his name, and cear up the mystery, Van asks friend-in-need Travis McGee to find out what really happened. What McGee finds is that Timber Bay is a toug h town to get a break in when you're a stranger asking questions. But what he also finds is that, dead or alive, Hub Lawless is worth a lot of money. Some are eager to get a piece of that action--and some are willing to take more than a piece out of anyone who gets in the way....
