"John D. MacDonald was the great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller." — Stephen King When Travis McGee picks up the phone and hears a voice from his past, he can't help it: He has to meddle. Especially when he has the chance to reunite Sam Taggart, a reckless, restless man like himself, with the woman who's still waiting for him. But what begins as a simple matchmaking scheme soon becomes a bloody chase that takes McGee to Mexico, a beautiful country from which he hopes to return alive. "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 Deception. Betrayal. Heartbreak. When Sam left his girlfriend, Nora, and vanished from Fort Lauderdale, no one was surprised. But when he shows up three years later lying in a pool of his own blood, people start to ask questions. And his old friend Travis McGee is left to find answers. But all he has to go on are a gold Aztec idol and a very angry ex-girlfriend. Is that enough to find his friend's killer? And when the truth is as terrifying as this, does he really want answers after all? "John D. MacDonald is a shining example for all of us in the field." — Mary Higgins Clark
