It's all about involvement! And Travis McGee can't stay un-involved. For instance,
here he is, driving along in Miss Agnes (his customized vintage Rolls) on a dark highway,
when, suddenly, from out of nowhere a barely clad young woman appears in his headlights.
Trav brakes and fortunately misses her (but barely!) but Miss Agnes lands in the swamp.
The girl disappears and he makes his way on foot into town. As he heads for town, a
pickup truck zooms by, taking a couple of potshots at him! What else can go wrong, he
wonders! Well, for starters, when he reports the accident to the sheriff, he's arrested for
murder--seems a young woman was found run over by a vehicle! From this point, author
John D. MacDonald takes over and the rest of the book is devoted to Travis' finding the
real killer, but not before he's taken down a few roads himself!
