Read full description of the books Darker Than Amber:
'MacDonald had a huge influence on me . . . Reacher is like a fully detached version of Travis McGee' LEE CHILD
Travis McGee isn't your typical knight in shining armour. 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.
Travis McGee and his friend are on a fishing trip when they witness a woman being tossed from a bridge into the open sea. Travis rescues her, but Evangeline is clearly no ordinary victim. Behind her darker-than-amber eyes is a seductive woman with her own agenda.
Now that he's saved her, Travis wants to help Evangeline make a new life. But to do so he must confront a gang of murderers so terrifying they make his blood run cold . . .
First published in 1966, Darker than Amber features an introduction by Lee Child
