       Additional Information  
      In what is nearly his final adventure, Travis McGee falls deeply in love with Gretel, his live-aboard boatmate. Then Gretel is horribly and impersonally murdered.
    Desperate and half-demented, McGee sets out to find the killers. The trail leads him to the Church of Apocrypha, an eerily familiar religious cult whose converts are given terrorist training.

    THE GREEN RIPPER is the most brutal and suspenseful outing of McGee's career, and we find a different kind of "knight errant" emerging from its savagery.
