In the Florida Keys, a houseboat explodes in a giant white flash, instantly killing the honeymooners onboard. Travis McGee's best friend, Meyer, loses not only his home and every single thing in it but his last living relative. Now he wants answers. And he and McGee plan to get them--or die trying. "To diggers a thousand years from now, the works of John D. MacDonald would be a treasure on the order of the tomb of Tutankhamen."--Kurt Vonnegut If Travis McGee hadn't arranged a lecture tour for his friend, Meyer would be dead. As it was, Meyer lent the "John Maynard Keynes" to his just-married niece, Norma, and her husband, Evan, hoping to give them the perfect honeymoon. Instead: tragedy. When a group of Colombian terrorists take responsibility for the brutal act, Meyer and McGee travel to Mexico to seek justice. Or payback. Once south of the border, Meyer and McGee discover many things: Evan's seedy past, a beautiful local named Barbara, a lethal drug cartel, and, perhaps, even Meyer's long lost courage. But does Meyer, always content in McGee's shadow, have what it takes to avenge the killing of the person he loved most? Features a new Introduction by Lee ChildRead Less
