A "first-rate entertainment" ("New York Daily News"), "Condominium" is a panoramic novel from a master of suspense that follows the disappearance of an American paradise, the corrupt souls willing to sell out to make a buck, the innocent masses caught in their wake--and the perfect storm that washes everything away.
Introduction by Dean Koontz
Welcome to Florida's Golden Sands, the dream condominium complex built on a weak foundation and a thousand dirty secrets. The real estate was a steal--literally. The maintenance charges run high as the locals are run out. It's the home of shortcuts, crackdowns, breakups, oversights, and payoffs.
Add it all up, and the new coastline community doesn't stand a chance against the ever-present specter of disaster: the dreaded hurricane. The big one is coming. Golden Sands is right in its path. And only a few brave souls have the power to stop this towering eyesore from going underwater for good.
Praise for John D. MacDonald and "Condominium"
"Most readers loved John D. MacDonald's work because he told a rip-roaring yarn. I loved it because he was the first modern writer to nail Florida dead-center, to capture all its languid sleaze, racy sense of promise, and breath-grabbing beauty."--Carl Hiaasen
"A narrative of wracking suspense that mounts to a devastating climax.""--Cosmopolitan"
"John D. MacDonald created a staggering quantity of wonderful books, each rich with characterization, suspense, and an almost intoxicating sense of place."--Jonathan Kellerman
