"McGee has become part of our national fabric."


Usually women came to take refuge aboard The Busted Flush. But this time a man stumbled on board, a walking zombie who fell into bed. Turned out poor Arthur Wilkinson was the latest victim of a fragile-looking blonde sexpot who used the blackest arts of love to lure unsuspecting suckers into a web of sordid schemes. Travis had thought he'd have a quiet summer. Instead he took on the most cunning, heartless, vicious con artists he'd ever met....


  • Hello again, Trav.

    What would Travis McGee think of me? Would he think I was an honest person, would he trust me? Travis McGee is the only fictional character that makes me want to measure up. On the other hand, he is often in big trouble, and it is a thrill to see him work his way out, always his skin in the game. No one writes better than John D. Read them all, and read them often.

    It has been many years since I have read this book in hard cover, but the feeling of satisfaction I get from a JDM novel never leaves me. He was a master.
