The Scarlet Ruse ä Y it's not McGee's heart that's in danger Because a syndicate killer has put a contract on McGee A killer who knows The Scarlet ePUB #187 something about stamps and even about McGe. I love the Travis McGee series I am reading them in order slowly and savoring them as I'm all too aware how finite the series is but this one felt a little flat to me I'm not sure why especially because the few prior were really superb Or maybe because of that THE SCARLET RUSE offers as many of the books do insights into a slightly arcane subject matter area where we've prior learned about say real estate financing this time it's the world of very rare stamp investing The novel also sees JDM taking his turn at the classic locked room theme And it features a fascinating female lead like none we've seen before in the series And some nifty and in the climax unsettling movement about on Trav's two boats Why the luke warm review The whole is somehow less than the sum of the parts in THE SCARLET RUSE and the story doesn't have the relentless drive a Travis McGee novel usually does One chapter even feels like bullet point format maybe JDM himself somehow wasn't so engaged by this installment of the series I'm looking forward to the next one however and meantime to be clear even an average McGee novel is a hell of a read But I wouldn't say SCARLET is one of the best Download ñ E-book, or Kindle E-pub à John D.

John D. MacDonald à 9 Summary

John D. MacDonald à 9 Summary Dred thousand dollars worth of rare And if McGee doesn't recognize their value perhaps Mary Alice McDermit does a six foot knockout who knows all the ways to a boat bum's heart Onl. I must admit that I actually do not remember all that much specific detail with regard to this Travis McGee adventure except that because once again in John D MacDonald's The Scarlet Ruse there is not enough of McGee's sidekick and best friend Meyer present and extant at least for me personally I rather uickly began to lose interest and become somewhat bored and distracted For it is really and truly the case with basically ALL of the Travis McGee novels I have read to date that while I to a point enjoy reading about the main protagonist Travis McGee his exploits his worldview his many adventures and misadventures although the rather constant machoism and sexism does at times begin to wear a bit thin if his best friend and foil Meyer the brilliant and understated PhD in economics who as a literary character I not only enjoy but actually am very much and deeply enamoured of with a lasting and serious literary crush does not appear consistently and enough I simply and yes very uickly begin to experience reading tedium and while in The Scarlet Ruse I seem to remember that Travis McGee is actually saved from certain death by Meyer and then nursed back to health by a character from the past from the very first Travis McGee novel The Deep Blue Good Bye these facts do not really save the novel from being rather tedious and long winded without my best literary friend Meyer and his astute observation and ideas constantly present Two and a half stars rounded up to three stars as I also feel I do not sufficiently recall enough of the specific plot of The Scarlet Ruse to be curmudgeonly although I do indeed remember my disappointment when I picked up this novel in the late 80s and realised that Meyer was a little too absent for much of the time for me to truly and happily enjoy this fourteenth instalment of John D MacDonald's Travis McGee novels
