SEATTLE POST INTELLIGENCER
Beautiful girls always grace the Florida beaches, strolling, sailing, relaxing at the many parties on Travis McGee's houseboat, The Busted Flush. McGee was too smart--and had been around too long--for many of them to touch his heart. Now, however, there was Gretel. She had discovered the key to McGee--to all of him--and now he had something to hope for. Then, terribly, unexpectedly, she was dead. From a mysterious illness, or so they said. But McGee knew the truth, that Gretel had been murdered. And now he was out for blood...

The pleasures of life aboard the Busted Flush are interrupted by a murder that plunges Travis McGee into a nightmare where nothing is as it seems, including the Church of the Apocrypha which he must infiltrate to find the truth.
