       Additional Information  
      McGee was too busy with his beloved houseboat, the Busted Flush, to pay attention to the little old man with his missing postage stamps. Except that they weren't ordinary stamps. No indeed. They were rare stamps, $400,000 worth.
    Even that amount doesn't ignite McGee. What does is a generously endowed Amazon named Mary Alice McDermit.

    And right behind her came a syndicate killer who wanted to cancel McGee...permanently. A killer who knew something about stamps--and even more about McGee.
