"She's the opposite of a damsel in distress: a famous movie star, very beautiful, very much in control of her life. She's just made one little mistake and now she needs Travis McGee to set it right. The money is good and Travis's funds are in need of replenishing. But that's not the only reason he takes the case.

Travis is approached by Hollywood actress, Lisa Dean to recover some compromising photos. He was going to turn her down until she assigns him her executive assistant, Dana Holtzer. Dana and Travis start tracking down the other people in the photos and some of the are suddenly murdered. Crisscrossing the nation interviewing people leads to Travis and Dana to become very close.

A complicated plot and vivid descriptions of American cities and towns in the 1960's keep the read intrigued. ( )

One of MacDonald's famous Travis McGee novels. This one is #4 in the series but it does not matter in which order you read. This very successful author can really tell a story. These are period pieces set in early sixties and work really well today if you understand the times. Great author! ( )

Some tiny outdated views in this one but I can give it a pass considering how long ago the book was published. You think the mystery is obvious all the way to the end but at the last minute the mystery isn't so obvious so more well not to me anyway, a nice twist plus we get a tragic romance thrown in which is quite heartbreaking for our hero. I enjoyed this one but not as much as the other McGee novel's I've read so far. ( )

My first Travis McGee in a few years. They haven't aged nearly as well as other contemporaneous stuff. Trav is a big lunk, and this was a bit of a plod. It reminded me most of the worst aspects of Fleming's Bond books, but at least there the dubious sexual politics was handled with a little more panache. ( )

Time travel in many ways. Film cameras and dark rooms. Negatives. Being able to get on an airplane on an hour from your hotel before you even have a ticket. A quaint attitude towards gay and lesbian sex.
As Travis's personality develops his lines and waspish moral values play a more Central role.
Not surprisingly Hollywood comes off poorly. MacDonald had bad luck with Hollywood. ( )

A big noisy wind out of the northeast, full of a February chill, herded the tourists off the afternoon beach, driving them to cover, complaining bitterly.
