5th in Travis McGee series.
From Library Journal
MacDonald, whose 21 Travis McGee novels represent arguably the best U.S. mystery series of the past 50 years, died in 1986, leaving behind a legion of fans. Sadly, Travis McGee seems lost amid today's hip, violent, and politically correct private eyes and series detectives, so much so that most of today's younger mystery readers may never experience this National Book Award-winning series.
A great 1965 Travis McGee story. Bodies all over the place, but Trav wins again.
Another great Travis McGee adventure! As always, John D McDonald does not disappoint.
John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee series is so lucious - the locale of Southern California, McGee's "salvage expert" - so sexy and strong, life on a boat won in a card game, etc.
All MacDonald books are good!
Sam Taggart drops in from the past--and then drops dead. He leaves McGee with an ancient Aztec idol and a woman who leads him on a wild chase.
