A Pale Gray Guilty Pleasure,
This review is from: Pale Gray for Guilt (Travis McGee Mysteries) (Mass Market Paperback)This one of the best of the McGee series. One of McGee's friends, Tush Bannon, is killed. It looks like an accident but McGee is suspicious and discovers it is a murder. He seeks justice for Bannon. The reason for the murder is a rather large company wants Bannon's land. Corporate officials are not directly involved in the killing but they help set the deadly wheels that ran over Bannon in motion.
The novel has all the hallmarks of a MacDonald novel - crisp writing, good pacing, distinctive characters, brief comments on American society, etc.
The ending is a little weak. I'm doubt the killer would have ended up in Ft. Lauderdale. Thought the reasons he wound up close to McGee were not logical. But...it's still a very good novel in the series.
