McGee in Arizona
on 5 September 2012
Travis McGee is hired by a woman whose husband has cheated her out of a fortune - and within ten pages very unexpected things are happening. I can't tell you, because it would spoil the book, but this is one convoluted plot. The action takes place, mostly, in Arizona, in an area where said husband is a big cheese, with sheriff and other powers in his control...
This is the third in the Travis McGee series, and his character is firmly established - boat bum, salvage expert, philosopher; and well-fledged character keeping legions of fans spellbound. This is not the best in the series, I think, but as always MacDonald is a fantastic writer who pulls you right into the story, however convoluted. The characters are believeable, dialogue real, landscape well-drawn, tension drawn out... solid stuff!
