Overview

A Bullet for Cinderella, 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.
 
After Tal Howard returns home from a Korean prisoner-of-war camp, he can’t help feeling that something’s missing. Desperate for a thrill as much as a big payday, Tal heads for the sleepy village in upstate New York where, a dying pal once assured him, buried treasure awaits . . . if Tal can find the girl who can lead him to it. But there’s another stranger in town, a man Tal recognizes instantly: Earl Fitzmartin, a cold, mysterious loner who terrorized him and the other POWs. Somehow Earl got here first. And now this psychopath is watching Tal’s every move—and waiting to strike.

Meet the Author

John D. MacDonald was an American novelist and short-story writer. His works include the Travis McGee series and the novel The Executioners, which was adapted into the film Cape Fear. In 1962 MacDonald was named a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America; in 1980, he won a National Book Award. In print he delighted in smashing the bad guys, deflating the pompous, and exposing the venal. In life, he was a truly empathetic man; his friends, family, and colleagues found him to be loyal, generous, and practical. In business, he was fastidiously ethical. About being a writer, he once expressed with gleeful astonishment, “They pay me to do this! They don’t realize, I would pay them.” He spent the later part of his life in Florida with his wife and son. He died in 1986.
