A great quick read for a Sunday afternoon!

Detective novel, pulp fiction and keeps your attention. In the genre of Mickey Spillane, Raymond Chandler, Macdonald keeps the torch going.

I think MacDonald's Travis McGee series was the best American detective fiction produced in the mid/late 20th Century. This novel obviously predates McGee and while the supporting characters suggest the types that MacDonald used in the McGee books, the main character is--compared to McGee--rather uninteresting. Not a bad read, but if you want to sample MacDonald at his best, try any one of the McGee books; they are all highly recommended.

    This was a great read! I honestly bought it because it was a cheap book, but it definitely would've been worth 5.00 instead of 99 cents. Definitely didn't expect this book to be this way--set in the 1960s (after the Korean war) and ended up being a bit of a thriller (Not like Dean Koontz, or what we expect today, but if you like old-timey stories, this is for you!)
