Deadly Welcome, 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.
Alex Doyle is a tough man on a tough assignment in Ramona Beach, Florida, the kind of place that doesn’t trust strangers and is policed by a sheriff who echoes the locals’ sentiments with a billy club. But Alex isn’t an outsider, exactly. He grew up in Ramona Beach—until they railroaded him out of town. “Can’t trust trash,” they said. Alex has never been back . . . until his employer, the Defense Department, sends him home to locate a government scientist and get him out alive. Unfortunately for Alex, Ramona Beach has a long memory. Unfortunately for Ramona Beach, so does Alex.
Features a new Introduction by Dean Koontz
