Death Trap, 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.
As a teenage wild child, Jane Ann Paulson had earned her wicked reputation, but no one deserves the shocking death she receives. When the police find a suspect, everyone relaxes . . . everyone except for Hugh MacReedy. A construction engineer by trade, Hugh has no business investigating a murder. But he happens to owe a big debt to the innocent man they’re sending to the electric chair. And so Hugh begins to look into Jane Ann’s death, not knowing that her quiet little town is sitting on some ugly secrets, that he’s about to blow the lid off each and every one of them, and that he’s just put a very tempting target on his back.
