Thanks very much. I've only read one of this series, and I've been meaning to read some more, so this is perfect. Good luck on your releasing quest. :)

I'm going on a trip soon, and this book may go with me. If I finish it along the way, it might not come home with me!

Well, it came home after all; I didn't do much reading on my trip.

Very enjoyable - thanks for sharing!

Edit 2012: don't know if this is the right cover or not, but it seems vaguely familiar, so I'm sticking it in here just for the heck of it.

oh, and here's another~~ this will probably take me much longer to get a round tuit....(whether it is or not) it sounds like that old-style macho guy thriller/mystery that just doesn't appeal~~

I came close to releasing this unread, as I just didn't think I'd like it....

Surprise~~I did! The story was well-developed and well-told, and I even mostly liked McGee~~ And hey, the book even mentioned one of my all-time favorite albums/cd : Claude Bolling and Jean-Pierre Rampal's Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano

The curse of the too high a TBR pile is that it takes sometimes a while to get to the books on them. But I did - this seemed a perfect kind of read for summer or holiday (and something I'd then love to release after reading while traveling) - well, it's summer and even if not traveling, it's read. My first Travis McGee, and I enjoyed the style of writing. Some interesting characters too - for some reason I don't think I had even noticed the author before; maybe he simply was less popular in Europe (where I lived until not that long ago). Interesting characters, the main guy with a good sense of humor, enough bad guys and a good hunt. Somehow very vintage good guy/bad guy story too, and very cinematographic - easy to imagine how it'd look as a film.

Safe journey little book - I hope you'll make many new friends on your travels!

"Don't ever apologize to an author for buying something in paperback, or taking it out from a library (that's what they're there for. Use your library). Don't apologize to this author for buying books second hand, or getting them from bookcrossing or borrowing a friend's copy. What's important to me is that people read the books and enjoy them, and that, at some point in there, the book was bought by someone. And that people who like things, tell other people. The most important thing is that people read... "
