The Deceivers, 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.

Carl can't get her out of his mind. Her name is Cindy, and she's the wife of his next-door neighbor. They live in the kind of suburbia that doesn't make headlines. In every way, Carl and Cindy are regular people--upstanding citizens, even--but they have been fighting desperately to keep from wanting each other. Had a perfect opportunity not presented itself, perhaps nothing would have happened. But suddenly it is the right time. The right place. And there's no room left for pretense. In a moment, even as Cindy and Carl hate themselves for what they are about to do, all innocence drains out of their lives . . . and two regular people become creatures of passion--and astonishing guilt.

Features a new Introduction by Dean Koontz
