Area of Suspicion

ebook
Area of Suspicion, 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.

Four years ago, Gevan Dean fled his hometown for a peaceful life under the Florida sun after catching his fiancée, Niki, in the arms of his brother. But now Ken Dean is dead—murdered by a thief, the police say—and Gevan's presence is desperately needed at the helm of the family business, where a classic power struggle between old guard and new blood appears to be unfolding. But everywhere he turns, Gevan finds only questions and confusion. The new production chief, a man who's both feared and respected, harbors mysterious motives. A colonel from the Pentagon is supervising the company's defense contracts. And Niki, a grieving widow, seems all too eager to pick up where they left off. But Gevan doesn't suspect the truth behind Ken's murder—until he's caught in a complex web of corruption and intrigue too deadly to ignore.

Features a new Introduction by Dean Koontz
