Second to last of McDonald's Travis McGee novels. This is a good one. ( )

Perhaps MacDonalds Own aging is reflecting in Travis’s increasing reflection and uncertainty. The end of Myers boat the Keynes is an unexpected beginning. The puzzle and it’s working out are enjoyable. I’m sure I must have read it before. Probably I read it shortly after it came out but the details of the story didn’t seem familiar. Fans should enjoy it but recognize the evolving of McGee ( )

Travis' friend Meyer still has not recovered from the trauma of almost being killed during one of Travis' last cases. To snap him out of his funk, Travis engineers a lecture trip to Toronto for him. Meanwhile, Meyer's niece shows up and he lets her stay on his boat while he is away and he has a friend take her and her new husband out on a fishing trip. On the outskirts of the harbour, the boat blows up killing all aboard.

Because a woman took a picture of Myers' boat moments before it exploded, Travis quickly notices that the husband was not on board. Meyer and Travis start a search for the husband which has them crossing the country following leads that show the husband has left a trail of dead women behind him. Eventually the trail leads to Mexico and with the help of the Cinnamon Girl they meet Evan Lawrence, the nieces husband, and together decide his fate.

This was a complicated case for Travis that MacDonald weaves into a plausible scenario that keeps the reader intrigued and reading. ( )

Although sometimes categorized as a mystery series, the McGee series may borrow some ideas from mysteries, but it is a series about as far from the standard PI genre as can be. McGee is not a PI. He’s a salvage consultant. When someone loses something of value and the normal lawful means of getting it back are not sufficient, he figures out how to outfox the conmen and tries to nets a fifty percent profit of the haul. He lives on a houseboat in the Bahai Mar Marina on the Florida Coast. Often, he confronts conmen, swindlers, and just mean ones, but he is about as unofficial and off-the-books as they come.

In this novel, trouble comes home to the Bahai Mar Marina and the John Maynard Keynes is blown up with three people on it and not enough left of anyone to bury. This is a story of a man with good looks and charm and wit who can sell anything to anyone and practically hypnotize any woman and when her accounts are cleaned out, he's gone without a trace. There's a trail of broken bodies and broken souls ranging across half the country and the trail is ice cold. There's no client in this one and very little left to salvage. --- just a battle with absolute evil in its most devilishly charming form.
Much of this story is about the investigation that McGee and Meyer take into the conman's troubled pasts and the ghosts they awaken as they try to nudge people's memories. Despite the fact that it may be more cerebral than action-oriented, It is a conpelling read from page one through to the end. This is MacDonald writing in his most carefully crafted, mature form. I really enjoyed this book. ( )
