Synopsis: Her brows were black and her face was oval, the brandied eyes spaced gravely, the lips wide and warm with instinctive wisdom, the throat and shoulders golden and fragile above the strapless nubby material of the pale tan linen dress. She half lay on her side, braced on her elbow, both knees drawn up, the skirt fanned over them. Had he never touched her then, she would have remained as in the beginning: remote, and with that slow and lovely enchantment that made all persons soften their voices when they spoke to her. There are good moments and some very bad ones. A mixed cast of American tourists never expected to be trapped together, unable to cross the river that was the next part of their journey. They were all strangers, even the ones who seemed to be travelling together. They didn't really want to get to know each other, but the scorching heat and the stalled river ferry take away the luxury of choice. Under the brutal Mexican sun their personal relationships, their human qualities, their values and dreams are exposed in a way that leaves no excuses. Their lives would never be the same again. In fact, crossing that river was not even to be a journey they would all make...In his most admired novel before the creation of Travis McGee, John D. MacDonald assembles a range of characters who get 'a little time by the river to breathe in the midst of journeying' - only to discover that they are The Damned.

About the Author: John D. MacDonald was born in Sharon, Pennsylvania. A graduate of Syracuse University and Harvard School of Business Administration, he began his writing career when he was serving overseas with the United States Army. Instead of the usual letter home, he wrote a story to his wife, Dorothy, which she successfully sold to a magazine. His first novel The Brass Cupcake, published in 1950. This led on to over seventy books written in his lifetime, as he became one of the most widely read thriller writers in the world. His success was particularly recognized for his Travis McGee series, leading to critical acclaim and prestigious awards. John D. MacDonald died on Christmas Day 1986.

Book Description Fawcett Gold Medal, Greenwich. Mass Market Paperback. Condition: Good to Very Good. Book is Fawcett number R2052 (1969 printing, I believe), with 60 cent cover price. Book has reading creases to spine and cover near spine and is lightly soiled. Given the Grandmaster Award in 1972 by the Mystery Writers of America, MacDonald may still be best known for his justifiably popular and well regarded Travis McGee novels, but every book of his I've read has been well crafted and enjoyable, and MacDonald has been praised by such varied, popular, and respected authors as Joseph Wambaugh, Stephen King, Carl Hiaasen, Dean Koontz, and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. Fiction.
