A fishing trip is anything but relaxing when Travis McGee is involved. As McGee and his friend Meyer settle down to some midnight casting, a woman falls into the water from the bridge above them. Her name is Evangeline, and the hints she gives about the events leading to her near drowning suggest a less than pristine past. But McGee has saved her, and now he wants to see her make a new life -- even if it means confronting a gang of murderers that makes his blood run cold. " 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 Evangeline may be the intended target in a complex scheme, but she' s no ordinary victim. Behind her darker than amber eyes is a woman who lures men onto her boat and robs them, throwing them overboard when she' s done with them. And now she' s enlisted the resistant Travis and Meyer to rescue her " savings" from her partners in crime. When Evangeline winds up dead, McGee and Meyer must get involved. But the stakes are high -- and Evangeline may not be the only casualty of her cruel game. " Travis McGee is the last of the great knights-errant: honorable, sensual, skillful, and tough. I can' t think of anyone who has replaced him. I can' t think of anyone who would dare." -- Donald Westlake
