When Travis McGee discovers a face from his past lying in a pool of blood on a cheap motel room floor, he wants answers. But so far, all he has are questions--plus the dubious inheritance of his friend's vengeance-driven girlfriend, and a valuable ancient Aztec golden idol. Part rebel, part philosopher, and every inch his own man, Travis McGee plunges into a wild and perilous trek for a killer that takes him from the Lauderdale beaches to the seething corruption of American expatriates in a distant Mexican town, to the lush high life of the California jet set.

"A master storyteller, a wizard of dialogue, characterization, and plot."
Chicago Tribune Book World

    So good, take a lesson.....
  • At bargain at this price

    Enough with the El Cheapo campaign. You're lucky to have MacDonald in a digital edition. If you want them for a little bit of nothing, there's a ton available used in paperback. Go away.
  • Apple?

    I think I would focus my rage on Random House instead (or perhaps in addition to). BTW, the paperback version retails for the same price.
  • Seriously?! $11.99?!!

    The Travis McGee novels are classics, and some of the best gritty PI novels ever written. However, these gems were written in the early 1960's, and as great as they are, Apple is WAY outta line charging full price as if these are new releases. Shame On You! Don't you guys already have enough income?!
