A Deadly Shade of Goldby John D. MacDonald, Robert Petkoff (Read by)
When Travis McGee discovers a face from his past lying in a pool of blood on a cheap motel room floor, he wants answers. But so far, all he has are questionsplus the dubious inheritance of his friend's vengeance-driven girlfriend, and a valuable ancient Aztec golden idol. Part rebel, part philosopher, and every inch his own man, Travis McGee plunges into a wild and perilous trek for a killer that takes him from the Lauderdale beaches to the seething corruption of American expatriates in a distant Mexican town, to the lush high life of the California jet set.
"A master storyteller, a wizard of dialogue, characterization, and plot."

I was pleased to see that John MacDonald has been revived for Nook readers. They are fun and lighthearted mysteries and good reads for planes and beaches.
