Border Town Girl, a two-novella anthology from crime writer John D. MacDonald, the beloved author of Cape Fear and the Travis McGee series, is now available as an eBook.


In a different life, Lane Sanson was a famous war correspondent and a bestselling author. He had been somebody. Now he's a nobody, bumming around Mexico, lost, lonely, hungry for hope, a pushover for a border town B-girl . . . and the perfect fall guy for a lethal frame-up.


As beautiful, as inviting, as treacherous as the sea around her, Linda is a woman who is used to getting her way. And if she doesn't get what she wants, she has no qualms using force to take it. But this time, her betrayals have gone too far for her husband—or the law—to ignore.

Features a new Introduction by Dean Koontz
