From the dust jacket : 

The seeds had been sown in Texas where a large sum of money had been manipulated for unsavory pur¬poses. They had been carried on the hot cash-scented wind to the golden coast of Florida where they grew into a brutal plan that would change a dozen lives—or end them. And when the plan flowered with the merciless destruction of a pleasure cruiser and all its com¬pany, its success or failure hinged on the survival of a broken, unconscious girl adrift in a tiny boat somewhere on the blue Gulf Stream. Here is a power¬ful epic drama of the greedy and the ruthless and of those that get in their way. A compelling story of tough Texas lawyers, Cuban exiles, beach boys, con men and cops all caught up in a vicious web of violence, terror and despair. When John D. MacDonald, undisputed master of the paperback, writes for hardcover publication he is apt to produce a blockbuster. The Last One Left is a breathtaking com¬pound of first rate detection—both private and official, the thriller, the crime puzzle and the keenly observed social commentary all brilliantly inter¬woven. The result is a superb double-length novel that will be remembered long after the last page is read.

Now in his early fifties, John D. MacDonald has for the past twenty years written some 600 short stories and 54 books that have sold 32 million copies around the world. He lives with his artist wife in a comfortable gulfside house in Sarasota, Florida and in spite of a schedule which includes no less than three novels a year finds time for sailing, travel, professional photography and civic affairs as well as being active in the management of several business ventures in Florida.
