A great first book but the series just keeps getting better and better the more we get to know who the real McGee is. A Purple Place For Dying. This is the third book in the series. Here Travis McGee is asked to go to a secret meeting the Southwest by a rich, snooty client. Here's that man again, that proof man in his third appearance—it came out in paper. Aficionados—and the census would have trouble taking a count—will notice the difference: the writing is tighter;there are those existential insights dropped like incontestable truths ("Remorse is the ultimate in self-abuse"). However characters disappear for good before they barely cross the page Author: John D. Macdonald.
