    It was the standard blackmail scheme. For years, sultry Lysa Dean's name on a movie had meant a bonanza at the box office. Now a set of pictures could mean the end of her career.When first approached for help by lovely Dana Holtzer, Lysa's personal secretary, Travis McGee is thoroughly turned off by the tacky details. But being low on cash, and tenderly attracted by the star's intriguingly remote secretary, McGee sets out to locate his suspects -- only to find that they start turning up dead!

    Would you listen to The Quick Red Fox again? Why?

    No. Kept me entertained, but not archival by any means.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. Several nice twists and surprises.


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    His voicing of Travis McGee. His female voices are not so good


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Travis McGee--A romantic in a cynical shell.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm delighted that Travis McGee is on Audible. The books are entertaining and still have some excellent writing, although some philosophy found here is not PC.
