From a beloved master of crime fiction, A Tan and Sandy Silence is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat.   Travis McGee is unnerved when he receives an unexpected guest--real estate developer Harry Broll, who is convinced that McGee is hiding his missing wife. Angry and jealous, Harry gets off a shot before McGee can wrestle his gun away. The thing is, McGee hasn't seen or heard from Mary Broll in three years, and it isn't like her to keep troubles to herself--if she's alive to tell them.   "As a young writer, all I ever wanted was to touch readers as powerfully as John D. MacDonald touched me."--Dean Koontz   McGee is a heartbeat away from crisis. He's getting older, Lady Jillian Brent-Archer is trying to make him settle down, and he's just been shot without fair warning. Nervous that he's losing his touch, McGee decides to get Harry off his case and prove he's still in top form all in one fell swoop.   McGee's search for Mary takes him to Grenada, where he's soon tangling with con artists and terrifying French killers, not to mention a slew of mixed motives. No longer wallowing in self-pity, McGee has more pressing concerns--like saving his own skin.    Features a new Introduction by Lee Child… (mehr)

There are better McDonald books but it is still quite an adventure. The protagonist doesn't suffer fools, con-artist or lies. He is to world weary to put up with the BS.

Warning: If a hard man doing hard things to fix hard problems makes your woman parts hurt then avoid these books. ( )

Travis sticks himself into this adventure, travels to the Caribbean,Grenada, has a few brushes with death and bounces between a few lovely ladies. The story has plenty of twists and turns and enough detail to keep it interesting. How long will it be before a generation comes along that doesn’t know what a phone booth is? ( )

I found myself feeling a little disappointed in the direction the character took in this book. Initially it seemed good, a bit of personal reflection, questioning of self motivation and life direction then a little later in the novel Travis is repeatedly choking a woman to get information out of her.
It sort of takes the evilness away from the character whose torturing and killing people too when the main good character is happy to choke people for information and threaten them.

Just found this one not as enjoyable as most of the others, seemed like it was trying too hard. ( )

Not one of his best McGee books imo ( )

On the most beautiful day any April could be asked to come up with, I was kneeling in eight inches of oily water in the cramped bilge of Meyer's squatty little cabin cruiser, the John Maynard Keynes, taking his automatic bilge pump apart for the third time in an hour.
