A Purple Place for Dying
by John D. MacDonald
Travis McGee is a self-described Florida beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He’s also an adventurer, a philosopher, and a “salvage consultant” who’s wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: He’ll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half. This time, McGee is summoned to Arizona by beautiful Mona Yeoman, who needs his help recovering the money that her good-for-nothing, soon-to-be-ex-husband stole from her. It turns out she’s not long for this world — but even though his employer dies, Travis McGee isn’t giving up. (Book Three, Travis McGee series.)
Rage Against the Dying
By Becky Masterman
Brigid Quinn is a retired FBI agent who spent her career undercover, working on sexual predator cases, and trained her protégé, Jessica, to follow in her footsteps.

Several years later she learns that there has been an arrest in the case, but the new agent working it, Laura Coleman, thinks the confession is false. When Coleman disappears and the bureau doesn’t seem to notice, Brigid finds herself in the thick of things once again. (Book One, Brigid Quinn series.)

by Carol Burnett
