9780060148331: Free Fall in Crimson

“The Travis McGee novels are among the finest works of fiction ever penned by an American author.” — Jonathan Kellerman He was rich, mean, and slowly succumbing to cancer — until someone hastened the inevitable by beating him to death at a Florida truck stop. Now Ellis Esterland’s son wants Travis McGee to find out who killed his estranged father. The why seems obvious: Esterland’s multimillion-dollar estate. “John D. MacDonald is a shining example for all of us in the field.” — Mary Higgins Clark Though he had been reassured that he would receive a substantial inheritance, Ron Esterland was disowned by his wealthy father years ago. But upon dear old Dad’s conveniently timed murder, the family fortune winds up in the hands of Ellis’s ex-wife instead. The quest to recover Ron’s money takes McGee from Hollywood to the Midwest, where he confronts prostitution rings and drug deals gone wrong. In the haze of violence surrounding him, McGee starts to lose sight of who he really is. But one thing remains crystal clear: McGee is on the trail of a killer conjured from his worst nightmares. “Travis McGee is the last of the great knights-errant: honorable, sensual, skillful, and tough. I can’t think of anyone who has replaced him. I can’t think of anyone who would dare.” — Donald Westlake

Book Description Harper & Row, 1981. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: " McGee has become part of our national fabric." SEATTLE POST INTELLIGENCER This time out, McGee came close to losing his status as a living legend when he agreed to track down the killers who brutally murdered an ailing millionaire. For starters, he renewed an unfinished adventure with a famous--and oversexed--Hollywood actress, who led him into a very nasty nest of murderers involving a motorcycle gang, pornographic movies, and mad balloonists. And Mcgee relearned the old lesson--that only when he came close to the edge of death was he completely alive. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0060148330
