"McGee has become part of our national fabric." SEATTLE POST INTELLIGENCER This time out, McGee came close to losing his status as a living legend when he agreed to track down the killers who brutally murdered an ailing millionaire. For starters, he renewed an unfinished adventure with a famous--and oversexed--Hollywood actress, who led him into a very nasty nest of murderers involving a motorcycle gang, pornographic movies, and mad balloonists.

I love John D McDonald books. This series is great but this book was not as enjoyable as the others for me. I have two more to go. ( )

Just as MacDonald has gotten older we find Travis aging as well. Still clever but somehow less engaged. Aging the balloon ride is fun. The bolts are well portrayed, and the antihero is very anti. ( )

A solid entry in the McGee series. Not as much social commentary as in some of the previous books but also missing is the slightly offensive remarks about women & sex that sometimes appear; that is a trade-off I can live with! ( )

In Free Fall in Crimson we have a dead millionaire, biker gangs, a hollywood movie set, pornography ring and Travis realising he's getting older and isn't as nimble as he previously was.

We commence the tale with the millionaires son coming to Travis to investigate his fathers mysterious death at a roadside rest stop far from his home and from there he slowly becomes tangled up in other schemes.

One of the better books of the series, everything since Tan and Sandy Silence has been good to really good and this one was no exception. Plot lines wound up well at the end and overall there was a good pace to the story line and a few throw backs to earlier books which is always a nice touch. ( )

Review: Free Fall In Crimson by John D. MacDonald.

This is the first book I read written by this author. I read up on the author and realized I was about to read the 19th book in the Travis McGee Series. I knew it was an older book and it was given to me and I found it an enlightening mystery. It was fast paced and would make a great beach read. This was a detective investigation that traveled from FT. Lauderdale, Florida, than on to Beverly Hills and a stop in Roseland, Iowa that involved a murder, issues of corruption and a hot air balloon competition.

Mr. Esterland was wealthy, despicable and slowly dying of cancer until someone decided to beat him to death at a Florida truck stop. The reason could have something to do with Esterland’s multimillion Estate. After two years Esterland’s son Ron, who was disowned years ago came back and asked Travis McGee to help find out who conveniently committed the murder and why Ellis’s Esterland Estate ended up in the hands of ex-wife Josie and her male friend. Ellis’s comatose daughter was to inherit his Estate however, conveniently she also died within two weeks after her father’s death.

The instruction in the will about the daughter’s inheritance had a clause attached explaining where the money should go if his daughter died before him. Somehow, Ellis’s ex-wife got the inheritance and ran off to Iowa to make a movie about hot air balloons and her male friend unknown to her, was making porno films with underage girls in the same area after the crew went home. The money was also being laundered to keep himself on top of things but his life style was costing him a lot and he was losing more money then gaining….He was thinking that things were going happen to turn things around….

During this time McGee already found out how the ex-wife got the inheritance and now was searching for the killer of the old man by following the money trail between Hollywood and Iowa….The story started out good and then half way through it just went downhill….. ( )

We talked past midnight, sat in the deck chairs on the sun deck of the Busted Flush with the starry April sky overhead, talked quietly, and listened to the night.
