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.
Travis McGee could never deny his old friend Meyer anything. So before he can even say please, Travis has agreed to accompany him to Mexico to look into the mysterious last months of the daughter of a rich friend.
Expecting to find out that the young woman had fallen in with the usual misfits and rebels, what they actually discover is stranger, and far more deadly. The deeper Travis digs, the less accidental the death starts to seem . . .
