The classic John D. MacDonald thriller about a Korean War vet searching for a stolen fortune in a small town. Our edition comes with two excellent bonus essays, a biography of John D. MacDonald, and an exploration of the paperback revolution of the mid-20th century.

Elegant pulp fiction.
Can't compare. John D. was one of a kind. This book was written before the Travis McGee, but has all the elements of that series and more.
John D.s writing style is unsurpassed. Great plotting and characters.
Highly recommended for those who like this genre.
This is the first MacDonald novel I have read/listened other than the Travis McGree series. I was reluctant to try this, as often early novels of writers do not live up to later works. In this case, I was entranced during the entire book. I will definitely be buying more MacDonald books.
