Synopsis: Clemmie, 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.
Married, straitlaced, and struggling to rise out of middle management, Craig Fitz is stuck in a life of boredom and routine—until he meets the irresistible Clemmie Bennet. A rich girl who plays by her own rules, Clemmie is the shot in the arm Craig has been looking for. She gives him his first taste of what it’s like to live on the edge—and it’s intoxicating. But beneath her fun-loving, thrill-seeking facade, this intoxicating sex kitten is an unpredictable terror. And the deeper he falls into Clemmie’s nightmarish games, the closer Craig comes to losing everything: his family, his career, even his life.
