    He's a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.

    Michael Cavacini says: "An Entertaining Start To A Classic Series"
    "Excellent 1st book"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Deep Blue Good-By again? Why?

    Yes. At 66 years of age, I grew up with John D. MacDonald and Travis McGee. I have read and reread this series of books numerous times and never grow tired of them. Travis is a compelling character who has to be the most unconventional detective you can run across. After all, living on a houseboat called "The Busted Flush" and driving a Rolls Royce that has been converted into a pickup truck and goes by the name of "Miss Agnes" can't be all bad.


    What other book might you compare The Deep Blue Good-By to and why?

    Any of his other books in the series. The character development, story line, and mysteries are well written and we see that Travis is as flawed as the rest of us.


    What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A sense of involvement that you just can't get by reading the written word.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this series to anyone.
