    "Mediocre McGee"

    The early seventies were evidently tough on the author because this book as well as the two that preceded it were, in my opinion, the worst three books of the series. As usual McGee does a great deal about all that is wrong with the world and the individuals that inhabit it. That and an overly long and poorly written climax drop the storyline to four stars and the narration drops the book another notch in my rating. Meyer's time in the hospital and the investigation into the new husband's background are strong points in the book and as always MacDonald's writing is top notch. There isn't a Travis McGee novel that I wouldn't recommend.

    Story
    "Travis Goes to Pago Pago"

    At least he didn't get shot this time! This one was tough on our hero. Very personal involvments and a lot of back-story. As usual the characters are all fullly fleshed out and the overall story was great. But I never thought I'd hear Travis singing the praises of a Pulsar LED digital watche!!! Perhaps the next one will mention what a stupid idea they were.....

    "Another great McGee!"

    Great story, again. Kept me on edge the entire time. You have to ask is Travis missing a step or two as he get older? He still has the reader rooting the entire time. Fun stuff.
