From a beloved master of crime fiction, A Tan and Sandy Silence is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat.

Being accused at gunpoint of hiding another man’s wife is a rude shock. But it’s an even bigger shock when Travis McGee discovers that the woman in question is Mary Broll, a dear old friend. Now she’s disappeared, vanished without a word to anyone.
