From a beloved master of crime fiction, "The Deep Blue Good-by" is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat. Travis McGee is a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight-errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: He'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half. "John D. MacDonald was "the "great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller."--Stephen King McGee isn't particularly strapped for cash, but how can anyone say no to Cathy, a sweet backwoods girl who's been tortured repeatedly by her manipulative ex-boyfriend Junior Allen? What Travis isn't anticipating is just how many women Junior has torn apart and left in his wake. Enter Junior's latest victim, Lois Atkinson. Frail and broken, Lois can barely get out of bed when Travis finds her, let alone keep herself alive. But Travis turns into Mother McGee, giving Lois new life as he looks for the ruthless man who steals women's spirits and livelihoods. But he can't guess how violent his quest is soon to become. He'll learn the hard way that there must be casualties in this game of cat and mouse. Features a new Introduction by Lee Child… (mer)

As someone who grew up in the 80's, I can only point at this book and say this - this is where all of my favorite TV shows were born. This is where the Rockford Files were seeded, Simon and Simon conceived, Riptide docked. This is where the Burn Notice was lit. If you've ever watched a show where the good guys are only mostly good, and every week they are helping some other unfortunate soul that's been dealt a rough hand fight back, then this book is for you.

The Deep Blue Good-By isn't a deep novel. What it is a great escape from the mundane, to a world where a guy living on a houseboat can solve crimes, right wrongs, and still has time to sip a beer at sunset. While at times a little dated, given the fact that it was published in the 60's, it stands up pretty well. ( )

Not much to say about this first adventure of Travis McGee other than, for me, Travis differs from others of the 50s and 60s PIs in that woman in this book and series are more than just sexual props. Yes, women are described provocatively, but many of them are strong-willed and developed characters. MacDonald was definitely ahead of his his time concerning the environment and somewhat ahead of his time in his rounded presentation of women when you consider the American culture of his time. ( )

The first book in the Travis McGee series. Set in the Florida Keys. Easy, fast read. ( )

I'd forgotten what a good writer he was. ( )

Alpha Male who is wise to the world.

Fast interesting adventure. Great writing style. There is a reason MacDonald is praised by men and women authors alike. He is the gold standard of this genre. ( )
