1 MacDonald, John D. A Deadly Shade of Gold
New York Fawcett Gold Medal 1965 0449142213 / 9780449142219 Mass Market Paperback Good 


Spine curved and creased, covers show some soiling, edgewear and bumping. Inside covers yellowing with PO initials. Text is clean and unmarked.

"A long-ago face from a faraway past -- Sam Taggart dropped in from nowhere on the girl he'd left behind -- and on his old buddy Travis McGee. And at one o'clock that night McGee opened the door to Taggart's cheap motel unit to find his friend's throat neatly cut from ear to ear and his body lying in a lake of blood smelling like freshly sheared copper.
McGee was left to inherit the legacy: Taggart's vengeance-driven woman and an ancient Aztec golden idol. The girl would plunge McGee on a wild and perilous trek which led from the Lauderdale beaches to the seething corruption of Amercan expatriates in a distant Mexican town, to the lush highlife of the California jet set."; 6" - 7" Tall

"A powerful novel about the legacy of an influential and charismatic American television preacher; a novel that lays bare the high-stakes, high-profit big business of saving souls.
"The place: Meadows Center, on the outskirts of a sleepy Southern town; a jealously guarded but ever-expanding all-new complex of offices, residences, schools, shops, temples of worship - the home and headquarters of the fundamentalist sect known as the Eternal Church of the Believer; where armies of believers staffing state-of-the-art computers solicit and process the thousands and thousands of dollars that pour in daily from their fellow faithful; a mecca for those who have proved their faith; an arena where a drama of tragic human weakness is being enacted.
"The players: the Reverend John Tinker Meadows, faced with increasing, and undeniable, evidence of his own spiritual bankruptcy as he assumes his father's mantle as spiritual leader of the Church . . . the Reverend Sister Mary Margaret Meadows, blind to the significance (and sinfulness) of her own gluttony . . . Finn Efflander, whose most important duty is to make indistinguishable - to the IRS and to the Church members - the line between the clerical and the corporate .. . .
"Unfolding though these lives is a tale of extortion and intrigue, of sexual exploitation and moral ambiguity, of murder and redemption, of the tainted reality that exists behind the facade of moral rectitude and holiness that the leaders of the Eternal Church present to the world.

So I kept the money, but Carrie never came back. And never would. She was suddenly very dead.
The papers said it was an accident. But I didn't believe it for a moment. I did not know then that Carrie had been mixed up in a dangerous and dirty business. But I suspected it.
And I was certain that someone had 'arranged' that accident. Now I was damn well going to find out who."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
