Soft Touch is one of many classic novels from crime writer John D. MacDonald, the beloved author of Cape Fear and the Travis McGee series, now available as an eBook.

Jerry Jamison wants out. Out of a sloppy marriage, a dull job, the empty suburban rat race. Out of the whole infuriating merry-go-round of boredom and frustration his life has become. Once Jerry had a beautiful bride and a good salary at her old man's successful business. That was before his wife turned into a lush. Before the business started to go to pieces. And before the lazy afternoon when Vince Biskay, an old army buddy, rings his doorbell and makes an intriguing proposition that promises to bring the excitement back into Jerry's life--but leaves only death and destruction in its wake.

Features a new Introduction by Dean Koontz
