I Could Go on Singing, based on the Judy Garland film and one of many classic novels from John D. MacDonald, the beloved author of Cape Fear and the Travis McGee series, is now available as an eBook.

In a stirring adaptation of Judy Garland's final film, acclaimed novelist John D. MacDonald pulls back the curtain on the life of a great star after the crowds have left and the lights have gone out. This is the haunting story of Jenny Bowman, a famous singer whose world is one of spellbinding triumph and heartbreaking need. She may have risen to the top, but success cannot ultimately return to Jenny the one thing she truly wants: time with the child who was taken away from her years ago. Masterfully depicting the tension between public images and private struggles, I Could Go on Singing is a striking novel about the bonds of love and the ugly side of celebrity.

Features a new Introduction by Dean Koontz
