They deal with basic issues of human life: These books are extremely well written. They are a delight to read, simply because the author pays such attention to detail and treats us to all sorts of gorgeous images and impressions while the hero goes about solving problems for little people. One person found this helpful. If you like Sue Grafton you will love this one and all the rest of his. A long time since l first read John D MacDonalds books.

Introduced by Lee Child, who is influenced by them.

Still an amazing read. I battled through all there novels.

Number 3 was the best of the bunch. Book 1, is an interesting induction of the person for hire, who will take on any challenge. It takes a lot of the book to set up the story, then the end comes to quick.

Very entertaining read. Plausible story line and a hint of nostalgia for days gone by.

Word Wise: Enhanced Typesetting: Page Flip: Not Enabled Word Wise: Enabled Screen Reader: There has been some confusion as to whether "Meyer" is a given name or surname, but it is clear in The Green Ripper when McGee and Meyer are in the hotel room with two federal agents.

They refer to him twice as Dr. Meyer and at the second, he says, "Just Meyer, please. Ludweg Meyer", and a letter of introduction beginning "My Dear Ludweg".

Whether these are his real names or not is obscured by both items being instruments in an elaborate financial con game. Both Meyer's boats are jammed full of books and treatises, ranging far beyond simple economic theory.

For instance, Meyer is a chess aficionado and amateur psychologist. Meyer serves as McGee's anchor when McGee's own inner compass seems to be skewed, as well as providing the formal education that the street-smart McGee lacks.


Meyer has been known to participate in McGee's campaigns on occasion and has come close to being killed more than once as a result. His cover is usually some sort of academic, though at times he has also played a stockbroker or an entomologist. Some world-weariness does eventually creep into McGee's character, perhaps because the s Florida in which he originated no longer exists.

The only direct indications of his age ever given are comments that he had served in the Korean War, and until the s he seems ageless.

He does at one point refer to having a "birthday ending in zero", which could mean that he was born in But as the story progresses, minor recurring characters began to drop away and it becomes apparent that McGee himself is getting older, along with his creator.

In later novels such as The Green Ripper and Free Fall in Crimson, there is a sense of desperation that the violence in the world is too senseless to be explained and will never end. Much of that dissipates with the ending of The Lonely Silver Rain, which became the final volume when MacDonald died in Reports of another final McGee novel, possibly narrated by Meyer, titled A Black Border for McGee and to be published posthumously, [3] have never been confirmed.

About the Travis McGee novels[ edit ] MacDonald was already a prolific author of mystery and suspense novels when he decided to create a series character. McGee originally was to be called Dallas McGee, after the city, but after the Kennedy assassination , MacDonald decided that name had too many negative connotations. He was searching for a first name for McGee when a friend suggested that he look at the names of the many Air Force bases in California.

The first three books in the Travis McGee series were published in quick succession, at the rate of one a month, a highly unusual publishing strategy.

According to MacDonald, he had earlier written an introductory novel about McGee that he burned as being unsatisfactory.Despite his age, he retains the quickness and agility of a professional athlete. Enabled Average Customer Review: Army [1] veteran of the Korean War. Travis's good friend Van Harder is held responsible for the death and much circumstantial --and suspicious--evidence points to his guilt. The resulting essay, "Reading for Survival", is a conversation between McGee and Meyer on the importance of reading.
