Nightmare in Pink

Book 3, Travis McGee - A Travis McGee Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


From a beloved master of crime fiction, Nightmare in Pink is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat.
Travis McGee’s permanent address is the Busted Flush, Slip F-18, Bahia Mar, Lauderdale, and there isn’t a hell of a lot that compels him to leave it. Except maybe a call from an old army buddy who needs a favor. If it wasn’t for him, McGee might not be alive. For that kind of friend, Travis McGee will travel almost anywhere, even New York City. Especially when there’s a damsel in distress.
“As a young writer, all I ever wanted was to touch readers as powerfully as John D. MacDonald touched me.”—Dean Koontz
The damsel in question is his old friend’s kid sister, whose fiancé has just been murdered in what the authorities claim was a standard Manhattan mugging. But Nina knows better. Her soon-to-be husband had been digging around, finding scum and scandal at his real estate investment firm. And this scum will go to any lengths to make sure their secrets don’t get out.
Travis is determined to get to the bottom of things, but just as he’s closing in on the truth, he finds himself drugged and taken captive. If he’s being locked up in a mental institution with a steady stream of drugs siphoned into his body, how can Travis keep his promise to his old friend? More important, how can he get himself out alive?
Features a new Introduction by Lee Child

Customer Reviews

Nightmare in Pink

So glad they are rereleasing this great series. I first read these in my early 20's and fell in love with Travis and the Busted Flush. Now many decades later I can read the books and enjoy the travels through the great places he hung out. Nightmare in Pink is one I loved with the usual assortment of well drawn characters and spot on descriptions of locales. Don't be full by the dreadful Dean Martin portrayal in the movies. The Sam Elliott version of Travis Magee was perfect. Who wouldn't want to spend a day with he and Mayer, or a week or just settle in for the ride?

Still one of the best writers

it has been well over 20 years since I read a JDM book and today they are as still as good as they were then. This one takes Travis out of his normal haunts in Florida and away from the Busted Flush to New York City. still the same Travis though and a great read.
so glad to see his books being made available as ebooks now.
