You Live Once, 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.

Clint Sewell knows there probably isn't a woman within fifty miles who would shed a tear if Mary Olan turned up dead—because there isn't a husband around who hasn't spent a night or two in Mary's bed.
