Darker Than Amber
by John D. MacDonald and Robert Petkoff




Overview -
"John D. MacDonald is a shining example for all of us in the field." -- Mary Higgins Clark A fishing trip is anything but relaxing when Travis McGee is involved. As McGee and his friend Meyer settle down to some midnight casting, a woman falls into the water from the bridge above them. Her name is Evangeline, and the hints she gives about the events leading to her near drowning suggest a less than pristine past. But McGee has saved her, and now he wants to see her make a new life -- even if it means confronting a gang of murderers that makes his blood run cold. "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 Evangeline may be the intended target in a complex scheme, but she's no ordinary victim. Behind her darker than amber eyes is a woman who lures men onto her boat and robs them, throwing them overboard when she's done with them. And now she's enlisted the resistant Travis and Meyer to rescue her "savings" from her partners in crime. When Evangeline winds up dead, McGee and Meyer must get involved. But the stakes are high -- and Evangeline may not be the only casualty of her cruel game. "Travis McGee is the last of the great knights-errant: honorable, sensual, skillful, and tough. I can't think of anyone who has replaced him. I can't think of anyone who would dare." -- Donald Westlake
