As many other reviewers have pointed out, this is a clear Travis McGee prototype: ex-football player, Florida, boats, women who don’t mind a lack of commitment, etc. Much of the same MacDonald voice is there, as well, and perhaps it has worn a bit thin after reading all the McGee books. Nevertheless, it is a well-written, exciting thriller that retains interest. Too bad there wasn’t a happier ending for Janice.
