Travis McGee isn’t your typical knight in shining armour. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: He’ll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.
An ex-girlfriend of Travis McGee’s is convinced she’s being watched. Her late husband, a world-renowned neurosurgeon, converted his considerable estate into cash before he died. The trouble is nobody can find it, including her. But there are those who don’t believe her and will stop at nothing to prove it.
As Travis McGee tries to untangle the mess and protect his terrified ex-lover, he discovers that the doctor’s enemies are far more determined than even he could have imagined . . .
