From a beloved master of crime fiction, "A Purple Place for Dying" is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat. Travis McGees taking his retirement in installments while hes still young enough to enjoy it. But sooner or later, his money runs out and he has to work. This time McGees lured out West to a strangely secretive meeting with a woman in trouble, in a place whose beauty hides some ugly, dangerous secrets. "John D. MacDonald created a staggering quantity of wonderful books, each rich with characterization, suspense, and an almost intoxicating sense of place."--Jonathan Kellerman Mona is in love with a poor, young college professor and married to a wealthy man whom she is convinced is stealing from her trust fund. So she does what any self-respecting girl would do: She hires someone to steal her money back so she can run away with the love of her life. Travis isnt sure he wants to help out until he sees Mona getting shot and killed out on the cliffs near her cabin. Now hes a lead suspect in a plot to help her escape, and to clear his name, he needs to get to the bottom of things. But the murders just keep mounting, and for Travis, even working with Monas husband doesnt seem to help matters. Will he be able to uncover the complex plot in time to save his own skin? Features a new Introduction by Lee Child
