Description
You Live Once, one of many classic novels from crime writer John D. MacDonald, the beloved author of Cape Fear and the Travis McGee series, is now available as an eBook. Clint Sewell knows there probably isn't a woman within fifty miles who would shed a tear if Mary Olan turned up dead--because there isn't a husband around who hasn't spent a night or two in Mary's bed. The latest occupant is Clint's boss. Joe's a nice guy, sure, but he's not above deceiving his wife . . . not above spreading rumors to cover up his sins . . . and maybe not above letting someone else take the fall when the unscrupulous Mary is found lifeless--with Clint Sewell's belt around her lovely neck. Features a new Introduction by Dean Koontz Praise for John D. MacDonald " The great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller."--Stephen King "My favorite novelist of all time."--Dean Koontz "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 "A master storyteller, a masterful suspense writer . . . John D. MacDonald is a shining example for all of us in the field. Talk about the best ."--Mary Higgins Clark
