I loved John D's early standalone novels. Travis Macgee was great but these show what a great story teller Mr. MacDonald was. There will never be another.

Good book. Good ending. The ending leaves a lot to the imagination.. It is a heart felt story told in an unusual way

5.0 out of 5 stars John D. Macdonald study a la Thornton Wilder's Bridge of San Luis Rey 3 July 2013

An accident on the new thruway - told with precision and excellent character studies. At times shockingly modern while firmly set in 1950's noir. Read the book to see a craftsman at work!

This was one of the few MacDonald books I hadn't read years ago on real paper books. His Travis Mcgee series includes some of my all time favorite books. Even MacDonald's foray into fantasy stories as in "The Girl, The Gold Watch, and Everything" is a fun read
4.0 out of 5 stars Read hard, read fast 26 Mar 2014
By Mathew Carruthers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Everyone today in the modern world is familiar with what happens in a high speed multi vehicle accident, as we are bombarded with news 24/7. I imagine this book was quite shocking when it was published in 1955, since the interstate highway system was a very new thing, as was high speed transit via automobile. This novel chronicles a brief intersection of separate lives brought together in multi car accident. We get back stories, character study, and how individuals cope with grief and guilt. All in all, this is a well told drama, tense and touching, at times, and gives one pause to think about a modern tragedy that has become not much more than background noise on the evening news or an inconvenience during the morning commute. Worth a read.
