I started reading this series when I was around 12 years old, and it has influenced my taste in reading and men ever since. To quote Kurt Vonnegut “To diggers a thousand years from now, the works of John D. MacDonald would be a treasure on the order of the tomb of Tutankhamen.”

Sure they're dated, but somehow they're not. I love to go back and reread. Meyer rocks! He was quite a bit ahead of his time I think. And McGee, tarnished knight-errant, self deprecating hero fills the archetype so well.

Classic "travis mcgee" mysteries; I'd forgotten how fun his characters were. Full of adventure and salty characters -
