From a beloved master of crime fiction, The Deep Blue Good-by is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat. Travis McGee is a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He’s also a knight-errant who’s wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: He’ll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half. “John D. MacDonald was the great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller.”—Stephen King McGee isn’t particularly strapped for cash, but how can anyone say no to Cathy, a sweet backwoods girl who’s been tortured repeatedly by her manipulative ex-boyfriend Junior Allen? What Travis isn’t anticipating is just how many women Junior has torn apart and left in his wake. Enter Junior’s latest victim, Lois Atkinson. Frail and broken, Lois can barely get out of bed when Travis finds her, let alone keep herself alive. But Travis turns into Mother McGee, giving Lois new life as he looks for the ruthless man who steals women’s spirits and livelihoods. But he can’t guess how violent his quest is soon to become. He’ll learn the hard way that there must be casualties in this game of cat and mouse. Features a new Introduction by Lee Child

Nach der Sperrstunde ist der sechste Roman mit Lawrence Blocks fesselndster Figur Matthew Scudder. Von heftigen Schuldgef�hlen geplagt, hat er Frau und Kinder verlassen und den Dienst beim NYPD quittiert. Seitdem haust er in einem Hotel in New Yorks Hell�s Kitchen und ern�hrt sich in seiner Stammkneipe, Jimmy Armstrong�s Saloon, vorwiegend von Kaffee und Bourbon. Das wenige Geld, das er zum Leben braucht, verdient er sich als Privatdetektiv, der, wie er es selbst nennt, Freunden hin und wieder einen Gefallen tut".Im Mittelpunkt der drei F�lle dieses Romans, der oft als Lawrence Blocks vielschichtigster angesehen wird, stehen Scudders Freundschaften: Tommy Tillary, eine Kneipenbekanntschaft, wird des Mords an seiner Frau beschuldigt und beauftragt Scudder damit, die Vorw�rfe gegen ihn zu entkr�ften. Tim Pat Morissey, Barbesitzer mit IRA-Verbindungen, heuert ihn an, die zwei M�nner zu finden, die seine Kneipe �berfallen haben. Skip Devoe schlie�lich sucht bei Scudder Hilfe, weil er von jemandem erpresst wird, der die Gesch�ftsb�cher seiner Bar gestohlen hat.Blocks Stil ist im besten Sinn des Worts realistisch", schrieb Marilyn Stasio in der New York Times Book Review. Da gibt es kein falsches Pathos, keine papierenen Dialoge und keine sprachlichen M�tzchen. Mr. Block kennt sein New York und wei�, wie seine Bewohner sprechen. Diesen Roman hat ein Autor geschrieben, der genau wei�, was er tut."Und Martin Cruz Smith, Autor von Gorki-Park, findet: Viel mehr als ein Krimi. Ein Buch �ber M�nner, �ber Alkohol, �ber New York, von einer der eigenst�ndigsten und markantesten Stimmen der amerikanischen Literatur."
