Publisher's Summary

Van Harder, once a hard drinker, has found religion. But that doesn't keep folks from saying he murdered his employer, Hub Lawless, whose body hasn't been found. To clear his name, and clear up the mystery, Van asks friend-in-need Travis McGee to find out what really happened. What McGee finds is that Timber Bay is a tough town to get a break in when you're a stranger asking questions. But what he also finds is that, dead or alive, Hub Lawless is worth a lot of money. Some are eager to get a piece of that action - and some are willing to take more than a piece out of anyone who gets in the way.

One of John D's best.

This selection is one of my favorite MacDonald books. The ennui that Travis feels in the early chapters in the book are familiar to those of us who have faced the transition between an elongated adolescence and adulthood. The change in his state of mind is another one of the touchstones that is familiar to those who hit their mid thirties single. There are a few of the contrived or overly dramatic elements that are one of the few weaknesses of the McGee novels. An excellent read for those who are fans of the genre.

A haunting story

I thought I had it all figured out. I knew who the bad guy was. Then it all changed! This one was a very good read (listen?) and well worth the time. You do need to know that some of the characters and plotlines from this one will be continued in the next one - The Green Ripper. So, if you are not reading them in order, make sure you read this one before the next one. An excellent book, with a great ending!
