Introduction by Lee Child


'MacDonald had a huge influence on me . . . Reacher is like a fully detached version of Travis McGee' LEE CHILD

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.

Discover Travis McGee with this special collection. Features books four, five and six of John D. MacDonald’s classic series.

The Quick Red Fox
Hollywood’s leading lady Lysa Dean isn’t in the business of making mistakes. But a night involving a debauched party and some naked photos turns out to be one mistake too many. Travis McGee soon finds himself led on a wild chase across the country, trying to track down everyone associated with the fateful evening. But just when Travis thinks he knows exactly where things are headed, one big twist shakes his very core . . .

A Deadly Shade of Gold
When Travis McGee picks up the phone and hears a voice from his past, he can’t help it, he has to meddle. Especially when he has the chance to reunite Sam, his reckless, restless old friend, with the woman who’s been waiting for him.

But the case takes a sinister turn when Sam shows up brutally cut and lying in a pool of his own blood. Travis is left to uncover the truth in a violent chase that takes him to dark but beautiful Mexico. But when the truth is as terrifying as this, does he really want answers at all?

Bright Orange for the Shroud
When an old friend, conned out of his life savings by his ex-wife, unexpectedly turns up at Travis McGee’s door, he finds himself pursuing a violently twisted hustler to get it back. What starts out as a simple job soon turns into a dangerous mission when he comes face-to-face with a quick-thinking and quicker-fisted enemy. To beat him, Travis is going to have to play him at his own game . . .
