Sometimes panned as a pulp fiction writer, John D. MacDonald is one of the finest writers exploring the human condition. Mixing a number of topics including philosophy, ecology, economics and sociology into an action-adventure genre, JDM not only writes solid, entertaining stories, but also imparts his deep insights to the reader.

I strongly urge the reader to start with the first of the series, "The Deep Blue Good-by" and follow the exploits of Travis McGee all the way through the twenty-one books, ending with "The Lonely Silver Rain"

I don't think you'll be disappointed!
