I was in deep sleep, alone aboard my houseboat, alone in the half acre of bed, alone in a sweaty dream of chase, fear, and monstrous predators. A shot rang off steel bars. Another. I came bursting up out of sleep to hear the secretive sound of the little bell which rings at my bedside when anyone steps aboard The Busted Flush. It was almost four in the morning.

From the Publisher:
It's almost four in the morning when McGee is jarred awake by a breathless ghost from his past. Carolyn Milligan desperately needs Travis to keep a package full of cash safe and sound. What's in it for him? Ten grand and no questions asked. She'll be back in a month. But two weeks later, Carrie dies in a roadside 'accident, ' leaving Travis with a fortune and a nagging conscience. Now he's obsessed with tracking down the mysterious truth about Carrie: what she was involved with, and why she had to die....
Annotation:
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Too bad Travis McGee didn't remember that old truism when he agreed to hold a stash of money for an ex-girlfriend. She promised him $10,000 in cash, but Travis is stuck with even more than that after she's murdered and he is left on his houseboat, "The Busted Flush," with the dirty dough, wondering if he'll be the next casualty, in his 16th mystery.
Author Bio
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.
