First published between 1964 and 1984, John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee series continues to inspire bestselling authors today. Everyone from Stephen King to Jonathan Kellerman has paid homage to MacDonald's work, which defined the genre itself. Now re-released is one of the most jarring of the wildly popular thrillers, in which Travis McGee must return a fortune to a now-deceased man's estranged son.
