Shades of Travis McGee The Quick Red Fox / Pale Gray for Guilt / Dress Her in Indigo - Travis McGee Author:John D. MacDonald The Quick Red Fox is a gripping study in blackmail. The victim: gorgeous Lysa Dean, whose name on a picture means big box-office money -- but whose face in the set of house party pictures somebody mails to her means the end of her career. Blackmail is always an ugly business, but Travis McGee is particularly concerne... more »d about the note with the photographs, which sounds like the spewings of a sick, perverted mind.
McGee's first objective is to locate the nine other people who appear in the pictures. Did one of them know that their swinging party was only 300 feet from a telephoto lens?
Then, as he digs for the answer, these sun-loving, highly photogenic men and women begin to turn up dead . . .
In Pale Gray for Guilt McGee takes a close look at a new waterfront industrial complex that a group of land-developer are planning in the name of "progress." Only one thing stands in their way: Tush Bannon's 10-acre marina. Bannon won't sell.
After Bannon's freak "accident" however , his widow is more than willing to unload the property for almost nothing -- until Travis McGee, who doesn't like bad things to happen to a pal, engineers a few financial tricks that leave Bannon's greedy killers bedazzled, broke -- and worse . . .
In Dress Her in Indigo, McGee promises lovely Bix Bowie's father that he will find out the details of her death. The dead girl's trail takes him to Mexico, into the sad, bizarre world of the wandering drug freaks who find haven south of the border. but somebody else is on the same trail -- somebody who dispenses death with sudden savage efficiency, and who makes the intrepid McGee wish he wasn't quite so intrepid.« less
