Her veneer was big city ... but one look and you knew that Toni Rassell's instincts were straight out of the river shack she came from. 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. So this was the girl I had risked my life to find. This was the girl who was going to lead me to a buried fortune in stolen loot.

A prolific writer of crime and suspense novels, many of them set in his adopted home of Florida, MacDonald's best-known works include the popular and critically-acclaimed Travis McGee series, and his novel The Executioners, which was adapted into the film Cape Fear.

Stephen King praised MacDonald as "the great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller."

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!)

One word - UGH! I couldn't find anything to like about this novel. In fact, I skimmed the final third.
