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 expert stamp collector is left frantic when he misplaces the extremely valuable collection of an important and shady client. Hirsh doesn’t know how he’s going to get it back. But fortunately for him, he’s got a friend in Travis McGee.
It’s not long till Travis is hot on the trail of the missing collection. But Travis is going to have to play this game carefully – Hirsh’s client is liable to break some fingers if he doesn’t get what he’s owed . . .
