This is book 19 of the "Travis McGee" series.
This note contains spoilers for the book.
Number 18 for McGee. Another dark one, this on involving crazy movie makers, and biker clubs. We get to meet McGee's Lieutenant, running a biker bar and hangout (from his wheelchair).
There's some nice movie-making stuff, including a brief visit to Lysa Dean from an earlier book. Seems the people on the movie project are augmenting their income by making sex films on the side, using not-fully-willing local talent. McGee escapes the lynch mob by taking off in a balloon near the end. The movie writer/director, and his girlfriend whose money McGee is looking into, are pretty far over the edge.
