Author Info
John D. MacDonald
Born in Sharon, Pennsylvania, John D. MacDonald attended the University of Pennsylvania and Syracuse University, where he graduated with a B.S. in 1938. After graduating from Harvard University with an M.B.A., MacDonald joined the Army in 1940, serving in the O.S.S in the Far East during World War II. His writing career began when his wife, Dorothy Prentiss, submitted a story he had sent home to her from the war to "Story" magazine. Lieutenant Colonel MacDonald's career had begun. After the war, he continued submitting stories of almost every genre to the pulp magazines, but when they began to be phased out in the early '50s, MacDonald began to make the transition toward original paperback novels, becoming one of the first great mystery writers to join the new, post-pulp era. His first thriller, "The Brass Cupcake", appeared in 1950. It wasn't until his 44th novel, "The Deep-Blue Goodbye" (1964), that he introduced his most famous character, the hard-boiled casanova Travis McGee. MacDonald, like his character McGee, is a longtime resident of Florida.
From the Publisher
Editors Note 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. RHPG now releases, for the first time in trade paperback and eBook, one of the most adventure filled of the wildly popular thrillers, in which Travis McGee's old flame dies under suspicious circumstances, leaving him to solve the mystery.
