From a beloved master of crime fiction, "e;Dress Her in Indigo"e; is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat.
Travis McGee could never deny his old friend anything. So before Meyer even says please, McGee agrees to accompany him to Mexico to reconstruct the last mysterious months of a young woman s life on a fat expense account provided by the father who has lost touch with her. They think she s fallen in with the usual post-teenage misfits and rebels. What they find is stranger, kinkier, and far more deadly.
To diggers a thousand years from now, the works of John D. MacDonald would be a treasure on the order of the tomb of Tutankhamen. Kurt Vonnegut
All Meyer s friend wants to know is whether his daughter was happy before she died in a car accident south of the border. But when McGee and Meyer step foot in the hippie enclave in Oaxaca that had become Bix Bowie s last refuge, they get more than they bargained for.
Not only had Bix made a whole group of dangerous, loathsome friends, but she was also mixed up in trafficking heroin into the United States. By the time she died, she was a shell of her former self. And the more McGee looks into things, the less accidental Bix s death starts to seem.
