Book Note: John D. MacDonald, A Tan and Sandy Silence

I read this book about 27-Mar-2004. I've read this book before. The book is copyright 1971. This note was last modified Monday, 05-May-2014 22:19:13 PDT.

This is book 12 of the "Travis McGee" series.

This note contains spoilers for the book.


The 12th Travis McGee book. An old client goes missing, her asshole husband seems to want her back. Badly. To sign some papers. Actually, though, she's already dead. Travis eventually tracks down the woman impersonating her in Grenada. Then the guy behind it all tracks them both down, and exercises his psychotic fantasies. And turns up again after Travis thinks he's gotten away. He and Meyer get beaten up some more, but eventually win.

Okay, maybe I'm getting cynical. It's still fun to read. Travis faces various decisions about his own career and future and this one, and, it seems to me, considers them fairly reasonably. He admits, at least to himself, that he's a danger junky. He doesn't consider that it might be important to try to do anything about it, though.
