From a beloved master of crime fiction, "The Turquoise Lament" is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat.
Funny thing about favors. Sometimes they come back to haunt you. And Travis McGee owes his friend a big one for saving his life once upon a time. Now the friend s daughter, Linda Pidge Lewellen, needs help five time zones away in Hawaii before she sails off into the deep blue with a cold-blooded killer: her husband.
The Travis McGee novels are among the finest works of fiction ever penned by an American author. Jonathan Kellerman
When treasure hunter Ted Lewellensaved his life in a bar fight, McGee could never have thought he d end up paying his rescuer back in such a way. But years later he finds himself headed to Hawaii at Ted s request to find out whether Pidge s husband really "is" trying to kill her, or if she s just losing her mind.
Of course, once McGee arrives he can t help but give in to his baser instincts, and as his affair with Pidge gets underway, he can t find a single thing wrong. McGee chalks up Pidge s paranoia to simple anxiety, gives her a pep talk, and leaves for home blissfully happy. It s not until he s back in Lauderdale that he realizes he may have overlooked a clue or two. And Pidge might be in very serious danger.
