Really, really good. A little darker than my usual fare, but the characters are just so good with all of their humanity on full display. The thing that really amazes me is that, although this book was released in 1965, it is not the least bit dated. Other than a couple of minor references (and what the stolen money was really worth), it could have been written today. A lot of that has to do with McGee living off the grid, I suppose. But good writing is good writing and this holds up nicely. ( )

As usual John D. MacDonald writes and tight and interesting thriller. This is another of the Travis McGee series and is good as usual. This author was always level above the other paperback novelist of the 50s-60s. Always a fun read.

When I start to burn out on History or Sci-Fi I just pick up a MacDonald novel. One of my fears is that I will read them all and I'll have to find another great thriller writer. ( )

A well done story allowing Trav to make mistakes that almost get him killed. Both the food and bad guys were well realized. It is fun to get on the time machine going back to the Florida of the fifties. I have to wonder if MacDonald himself had bad experience with real estate syndications. He seems to enjoy poking fun at country clubs and tennis. Everglades City and the sportsman's club haven't changed a lot, but Marco island is unrecognizable. The are still some elements of old Florida in Goodland and Chocoloskee (spelling?).
MacDonald certainly demonstrates the writing advice of show don't tell. ( )
