    A good friend—Tush Bannon, who played pro football with Trav—dies horribly in mysterious circumstances. With help from his friend Meyer, McGee builds up an elaborate scam. Travis McGee's old football buddy Tush Bannon is resisting pressure to sell off his floundering motel and marina to a group of influential movers and shakers. Santo gets a similar slap in the face—literal a well as figurative. Any books or movies I've come across from the 60s show a very raw time, lot of drugs, lot of sexual predators men and womena direct desire to be less civilized. All in all, a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon.

    He mailed it home to his wife, who sent it to a magazine without his knowledge. The curtains were always closed and the atmosphere seemed invariably dark and somber. One time my wife and I had him over for supper. Trav may even have put the oily operator on the slippery slope to financial failure.

    Pale Gray for Guilt fullDescription From a beloved master of crime fiction, Pale Gray for Guilt is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat. As a genre stylist, he is without peer; yet most critics agree that his literary skills transcend the limitations of genre. The Travis McGee novels are among the finest works of fiction ever penned by an American author and they retain a remarkable sense of freshness. I listened to a few audio books a long time ago and started Deep Blue Goodbye a few times. You deserve to have the pleasure of discovering that on your own.

Pale Gray for Guilt book

Learning how he has been stung, Santo fires Smith, but she quickly loses interest in McGee. Then, injust as the demand for paperback books was increasing, he made the crossover to full-length fiction with The Brass Cupcake, a classic hardboiled detective novel featuring mobsters, corrupt cops, and a disaffected loner who falls for a beautiful woman.

For a long time, he resisted the siren call of series fiction. The Travis McGee novels are among the finest works of fiction ever penned by an American author and they retain a remarkable sense of freshness.

Then he's found dead. After McGee and Puss find her, and let her vent her grief, they begin probing the power structure of Shawana County.

This kind of life—even if you pull it off—comes with big costs. Find one of good appetite and no thought of it being for keeps, and romp the lass Pale Gray for Guilt book and completely, and now and again, when she is asleep and you are awake, and your arms are around her and you are sleeping like spoons, with her head tucked under you ugly chin, pretend it is… Puss, who loved you.

They squashed him like a bug and walked away, counting their change. I loved it because he was the first modern writer to nail Florida dead-center, to capture all its languid sleaze, racy sense of promise, and breath-grabbing beauty.

Which an unofficial autopsy later shows to have been a miracle of sorts—as Tush seems to have lifted and dropped the engine three times. And now he's going to make them pay. In typical fashion, JDM brings the accidental killer charging out the shadows, nearly taking out McGee and the widow Jan.

I envy the generation of readers just discovering Travis McGee, and count myself among the many readers savoring his adventures again. The lovely young widow and kiddies need rescuing.

All I ever wanted was to touch readers as powerfully as John D. Features a new Introduction by Lee Child Specifications. In an uncharacteristic outburst he suggests a solution to LaFrance for his situation: Suicide.

His measly plot of land just so happened to sit right in the middle of a rich parcel of five hundred riverfront acres that big-money real estate interests decided they simply must have. Travis McGee's old football buddy Tush Bannon is resisting pressure to sell off his floundering motel and marina to a group of influential movers and shakers.Pale Gray for Guilt still remains a favorite for the intricacies of the plot, the fun of taking down the con men, and the fact that Travis' friend Meyer has a nice role.
