About This Item

Hardcover edition, a third printing copy. This is the 18th in the Travis McGee series of crime novels from MacDonald. This is not a remainder copy, not a library discard, not the book club edition. The dust jacket is intact and is not price clipped, original price of $9.95 printed on the lower corner of the front flap. There is a 1/4 inch closed tear to the top edge of the dust jacket - above the 'J' in 'John'. Nice green colored boards with green cloth covered spine and embossed title on the cover and spine. Some light smudging to the green boards from use. The top edge of the text block has some age foxing dots. No writing on the text, no former ownership marks. The binding is tight and square. The attached photos is of the copy we have in our inventory, not a stock photo.

Synopsis

The Green Ripper is the eighteenth of 21 Travis McGee novels written by John D. McDonald. It won the National Book Award for the category of mystery in 1980, and was the first and only book in that category to receive the award. The plot is centered on revenge against a secretive, terrorist cult that is responsible for killing McGee's lover Gretel. The title is a word play on the name of the Grim Reaper.
