He's a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.
Nothing that John D. MacDonald wrote is better loved and more enduring than the 21 books in his series about Travis McGee, the Florida-based “salvage consultant” who recovers property for a fee so he can take his retirement “a piece at a time”. Narrator Robert Petkoff, hand-chosen to narrate with the approval of MacDonald’s estate, brings McGee’s world of the Busted Flush (his houseboat, which he won in a poker game) and “Miss Agnes” (his custom Rolls-Royce pickup truck) to vivid life.

Brilliant Start to a Great Series!
One of the best. Travis McGee is great.
The other Travis McGee books in the series. They all have the same main character.
Not heard Robert Petkoff before. He handled this story fantastically
Yes, it was great but listening in pieces of stolen time was perfect for this book. Between times I was wondering what would happen.
Superb start to a wonderful series of books.
