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.
Around four in the morning, Travis McGee is jarred awake by a ghost from his past: an old flame who needs a place to stash a package full of cash. He agrees to help. Two weeks later she’s dead.
Left with a hundred grand and a nagging conscience, Travis goes to a seedy little town to look into Carrie’s previous life. But what Travis finds only pushes him further into the corrupt world she was trying to escape . . .
