I watched her as she toyed with the man, laughing, her tumbled hair like raw blue-black silk, her brown shoulders bare. Eyes deep-set, a girl with a gypsy look.

Meet the Author

Widely regarded as a master of crime fiction, John Dann MacDonald (1916-1986) was the author of the critically acclaimed Travis McGee mystery series, numerous novels, and many short-stories. His book, The Executioners, was adapted into the film Cape Fear. MacDonald remains one of the most significant modern authors — authors from Stephen King to Kurt Vonnegut have cited him as one of their influences. In 1972, MacDonald received the Grand Master award from the Mystery Writers of America, and in 1980 he won a National Book Award for his Travis McGee novel, The Green Ripper, in the one-year category Mystery. He lived in Florida and died in 1986.

Detective novel, pulp fiction and keeps your attention. In the genre of Mickey Spillane, Raymond Chandler, Macdonald keeps the torch going. For .99 cents, 198 pages goes by quickly. Boy learns secret, hidden treasures, quest for answers, murder, chases and a catchy title!

I think MacDonald's Travis McGee series was the best American detective fiction produced in the mid/late 20th Century. This novel obviously predates McGee and while the supporting characters suggest the types that MacDonald used in the McGee books, the main character is--compared to McGee--rather uninteresting. Not a bad read, but if you want to sample MacDonald at his best, try any one of the McGee books; they are all highly recommended.

This was a great read! I honestly bought it because it was a cheap book, but it definitely would've been worth 5.00 instead of 99 cents. Definitely didn't expect this book to be this way--set in the 1960s (after the Korean war) and ended up being a bit of a thriller (Not like Dean Koontz, or what we expect today, but if you like old-timey stories, this is for you!)
