Synopsis: A Man of Affairs, 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.
 
Beneath the Bahamas sun rages a titanic power struggle. A mastermind of the dog-eat-dog world of corporate corruption, Mike Dean uses every asset at his disposal—women, liquor, his own personal magnetism—to take businessmen’s minds off their troubles, soften their consciences, muddy their good sense, and bend them to his will. But one of his house guests refuses to see things Mike’s way. One of them won’t be bought. One of them has a mind, and a heart, of his own. And he’s determined to beat Mike at his own game.
 
Features a new Introduction by Dean Koontz
