John D. MacDonald
John Dann MacDonald (July 24, 1916 - December 28, 1986) was an American author of novels and short stories, famous for his thrillers.
MacDonald was a prolific author of suspense and crime novels, many of these set in his adopted home of Florida. His works comprise the most famous and critically Travis McGee series, and his novel The Executioners, that has been filmed twice as Cape Fear. In 1972, MacDonald was named a grandmaster of the Mystery Writers of America, and he won a 1980 U.S. National Book Award in the one-year category Mystery. Stephen King praised MacDonald as "the great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller." Kingsley Amis said, MacDonald "is by any standards a much better author than Saul Bellow, just MacDonald writes thrillers and Bellow is a human-heart chap, so guess who wears the top-grade laurels."
