Publisher's Summary

A classic novel by John D. MacDonald with an exclusive introduction written and read by Dean Koontz.
Dead Low Tide is an iconic early thriller from John D. MacDonald, the mastermind behind Cape Fear and the Travis McGee novels.
On the coast of Florida, a working stiff is wrongfully accused of murdering his boss - and must outwit one of MacDonald's signature villains to save his life. A college graduate and amateur fisherman, Andy McClintock is stuck toiling in the office of a construction company. But when Andy tries to quit, his boss offers him a promotion and a raise - and then promptly kills himself with a harpoon gun. At least, that's what it looks like, until the police rule it homicide - with the murder weapon belonging to Andy. The harpoon gun had been stolen out of Andy’s garage, and the boss's wife makes the outrageous claim that she and Andy were having an affair. He's been set up. To clear his name, he'll have to find the real killer. But Andy soon discovers that he's up against more than a two-bit thief - he's been targeted by absolute evil, a monster with no compassion for his fellow man.

Early Travis

Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Low Tide to be better than the print version?


What other book might you compare Dead Low Tide to and why?

Travis McGee novels...but not as complex or as good, overall.

Have you listened to any of Stephen Hoye’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

First time...he was ok.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Too long for that.

Any additional comments?

I'm a fan of John MacDonald but..this was not one of his best.
