The Green Ripper: A Travis McGee Novel, Book 18 | [John D. MacDonald]

The Green Ripper: A Travis McGee Novel, Book 18

Beautiful girls always grace the Florida beaches; strolling, sailing, relaxing at the many parties on Travis McGee's houseboat, The Busted Flush. McGee was too smart - and had been around too long - for many of them to touch his heart. Now, however, there was Gretel. She had discovered the key to McGee - to all of him - and now he had something to hope for. Then, terribly, unexpectedly, she was dead. From a mysterious illness, or so they said. But McGee knew the truth; that Gretel had been murdered.

    "Vengeance Road"

    Gretchen is dead; so the love of McGee's life has just been killed, again. The only lead he has as to who the killers might be is a story Gretchen told him the night before her death. She related the story of how she and her ex-husband had gone to search for his sister. Outside the town of Ukiah, in rural Northern California they found her in a cult. So with this information McGee steps out of his life and goes hunting; he 's determined that someone will pay.
    As it turns out he accidentally stumbles upon the violent side of a left-wing revolutionary group. The cult is planning on an incipient beginning of the revolution and are in training to fire the first shot; so to speak. McGee takes on a new identity as he plots his revenge. I'll stop there so as not to spoil the ending. This is one of my least favorite Travis McGee novels; it is quite different from the other books in the series. Still though the worst of the McGee books is excellent. As always when it comes to the writings of John D. MacDonald, I recommend it.

    "Don't make Travis mad!"

    This one pulls out all the stops. You've never seen Travis like this, but you always knew he had it in him. This one kind of picks up where the previous one, “The Empty Copper Sea” left off, so make sure you have read that one first. This one really changes things for Travis. There are only three more novels left, and it looks like Travis is moving into the modern age of terrorism we all live with today. Savor this one, only three more to go….
