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. 32-year-old Mona is in love with a poor, young college professor, but is trapped in a marriage with a wealthy businessman whom she is convinced is stealing from her trust fund. To get out, she does what any self-respecting woman would do: she hires someone to steal her money back so she can run away with the man she loves. Travis McGee isn't sure he wants to help out...until he sees Mona shot dead on the cliffs near her cabin. But when he arrives at the scene, her body is gone. And there's no trace of them ever having met. Will Travis prove that what he saw was real, and unravel a complex murder web, in time to save his own skin? FIRST PUBLISHED IN 1964, A PURPLE PLACE FOR DYING INCLUDES AN INTRODUCTION BY LEE CHILD. *********************************************************************************** Further Praise for the Travis McGee series: 'The consummate pro, a master storyteller and witty observer . . . The Travis McGee novels are among the finest works of fiction ever penned by an American author and they retain a remarkable sense of freshness' - Jonathan Kellerman 'Travis McGee is my favourite fiction detective. He's great because he has a philosophical side - he will fight a bunch of mobsters in a car park and then have a muse about life, the universe and everything' - Tony Parsons 'A dominant influence on writers crafting the continuing series character . . . I envy the generation of readers just discovering Travis McGee' - Sue Grafton 'A master storyteller, a masterful suspense writer . . . John D. MacDonald is a shining example for all of us in the field' - Mary Higgins Clark 'What a joy that these timeless and treasured novels are available again' - Ed McBain 'There's only one thing as good as reading a John D. MacDonald novel: reading it again . . . He is the all-time master of the American mystery novel' - John Saul
