    Travis McGee never shies away from damsels in distress. But this Eurasian beauty was different. When Travis and Meyer rescued her from the water, she had a block of cement wired to her feet, and she wasn't so much grateful as ready to snare them in a murder racket to end all murders.

    Anne says: "At last, but hoping for a better Meyer"

    If you could sum up Darker Than Amber in three words, what would they be?

    Meyer too gentile


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Darker Than Amber?

    Lots of Meyer love.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I liked Petkoff's voice and reading style for McGee, somewhat understated which was nice. He didn't try and tough guy it up thank god.

    However, I was a bit disappointed with Petkoff's take on Meyer. I love Meyer and I've had his voice in my head for a long time. MacDonald clearly wrote Meyer as a mensch. He's a retiree in Ft. Lauderdale for pete's sake. Petkoff doesn't capture that, way too gentile.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    If you haven't read or listened to McGee, you're in for a treat. I've been waiting a long time for a good commercial production of the McGee novels.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a hardcore McGee fan. My monitor background is a 1964 view of Bahia Mar where I can point out, to anyone who cares (i.e. no one) where slip F-18 is.
