The Deep Blue Good-by

“Home is the `Busted Flush,’ 52-foot barge-type houseboat, Slip F-18, Bahia Mar, Lauderdale.”  There is perhaps no other address as iconic in American pulp literature as Travis McGee’s Florida houseboat.  Mr. McGee, or Trav as he prefers it, is the “knight in tarnished armor” and “salvage consultant” who stars in bestselling author John D. MacDonald’s award winning mystery serial.  The Deep Blue Goodby is the first in the series, and features Trav’s cat and mouse game against the sociopath Junior Allen to recover a client’s stolen treasure.  The book reaches a thrilling climax where McGee battles Allen for his client’s pilfered goods and for his very life.  The first in over 21 novels, The Deep Blue Goodby is an excellent place to start enjoying MacDonald’s razor-sharp prose and poignant social commentary.
