Read in September, 2010

Travis McGee goes after an inheritance that leads him to Hollywood and an auteur making a movie about hot-air balloons. The author skewers art films and the blowsy intelligensia that accompanies art films. The author categorical rejects film as art and relegates them with television as mass media.
Travis now has Meyer as a full and lippy partner and has to rely on unsavory characters – drug dealing, motorcycle gangs – to finish off the bad guys. It is a way of saying the world has become a darker, harder place.
The style holds up, but the fun and playfulness have been replaced by an old man cranky pants voice.
