Travis McGee isn’t your typical knight in shining armour. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: He’ll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.


An expert stamp collector is left frantic when he misplaces the extremely valuable collection of an important and shady client. Hirsh doesn’t know how he’s going to get it back. But fortunately for him, he’s got a friend in Travis McGee.


It’s not long till Travis is hot on the trail of the missing collection. But Travis is going to have to play this game carefully – Hirsh’s client is liable to break some fingers if he doesn’t get what he’s owed . .

John D. MacDonald

John D. MacDonald was an American writer of novels and short stories, known for his thrillers.

MacDonald was a prolific author of crime and suspense novels, many of them set in his adopted home of Florida. One of the most successful American novelists of his time, MacDonald sold an estimated 70 million books in his career. His best-known works include the popular and critically acclaimed Travis McGee series, and his 1957 novel The Executioners.

In 1972, the Mystery Writers of America bestowed upon MacDonald its highest honor, the Grand Master Award for lifetime achievement and consistent quality. Stephen King praised MacDonald as "the great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller." Kingsley Amis said, MacDonald "is by any standards a better writer than Saul Bellow, only MacDonald writes thrillers and Bellow is a human-heart chap, so guess who wears the top-grade laurels."
