Rating: Weighted - 7.63 / Average - 7.4 of 10 (5 votes)
Twenty-one color-coded detective novels about sandy-haired 6'4" combat vet Travis McGee, Fort Lauderdale salvage expert and beach bum, featuring his houseboat, the Busted Flush (named for the poker hand his opponent was holding when he won it) and Miss Agnes, who is a 1936 Rolls-Royce converted to a (sort of) electric-blue pickup and named after McGee's old teacher, whose hair was the same shade of blue. Featured in most of the stories is his neighbor and chess opponent Meyer, retired economist and fount of wisdom. Travis is smart, a good man in a fight, and a heck of a nice guy. And a natural gentleman...but not to a fault.
(I apologize to lovers of Miss Agnes for misnaming her "Miss Alice" previously...I got the misinformation from a good neighbor of McGee's who might have had a few too many Piņa Coladas...or do I mean Pina Coladas...before he typed it in.)
