Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
BUT.... don't start this series with this book as wonderful as it is. Nope, start with its predecessor, Rogue Island. You'll totally thank me. They just fit together so well and explain the living and dead cast members. OK, Ciff Walk can stand on its own bottom, but the beauty of Audible is that few books go out of print so we can enjoy Bruce DeSilva's imaginative growth. And Jeff Woodman' fascinating talent as an actor and creator. DiSilva is as good as any mystery writer... and better than most.
DiSilva plays and teases with moral ambiguities and conundrums. His ensemble fit together, and his plotting fits together like the legendary stones of Machu Pichu. Treat yourself to this series...
These are classic mystery stories written at a time when $10,000.00 was equal to $100,000.00 in today dollars. Also men and women had different rolls. If you take that into the balance of the story, you can enjoy the mystery, and how Trav solves each problem he encounters. I have started with book one, and have now completed book 7. They all get better I have found. Just have to get used to some of the dated language and interplay between characters. It's not 2012, but late 1960's. I still find the stories really well written and have enough mystery and strange turns of events to make each Travis McGee story a gem.
