"McGee has become part of our national fabric."
A lovely young girl steps in front of Travis McGee's headlights. McGee misses the girl but lands in ten feet of swamp water. As he's limping along the deserted road, someone in an old truck takes a few shots at him. And, when he goes to the local sheriff to complain, the intrepid Travis McGee finds himself arrested and charged with murder. And he can't help but ask himself, is this what they call southern hospitality...?

Much more angst for McGee in this one, and one is kept guessing to the end. Much pungent social contact, as usual, and in retrospect, richly deserved.
The perfect book for the beach, a rainy day or just relaxing. The plots are always excellent the characters interesting and the dialogue is great, there are times you will laugh out loud and times that you might cry and times for goosebumps. This was one of my favoites, I collect them and I had lost this one and wanted to make sure my set was complete. Of course, as soon as it came in, I read it again. Pure enjoyment!!. There are at least 25 books and I recommend them all. It is good if you can start from the beginning with The Deep Blue Good-bye, but you can take anyone of them individually and enjoy the heck out of it. Learn about Florida and other things, even though it is fiction, there was always something in each book that I came away with that I could say to someone, "did you know!"? For a mystery/thriller it's the best, and I for one miss new ones so much that I frequent the old ones again. It is amazing that you can take a character like Travis, a "beach bum" and his sidekick "Meyer" an economist of all things both living on boats, and make such exciting and enjoyable reading.
Nvrmnd. Gtg anyways.
