This is one of those books that s a little tricky to review because I have to give up a fair amount of plot to discuss what I found so ridiculous about it but it s all part of the basic set up If you know that you re reading a crime novel andor are familiar with Travis McGee it s pretty obvious how things will play out Plus I m not giving up anything about the ending so I m not going to spoiler tag the whole review but if you haven t read and you don t want to know too much you should probably skip this oneThe old Sea Cock really outdid himself this timeWhen Pidge Llewellen was a teenage girl she had a huge crush on Travis McGee and her treasure hunting father once saved his life so he feels than a little protective of her After her father was killed in an accident McGee and his friend Meyer made sure she received the sizable inheritance she was owed as well as vetted her prospective husband Howie Brindle After their wedding Pidge and Howie set off on a cruise around the world in a small boatMonths later Travis gets a call from Pidge in Hawaii asking for help When he arrives Pidge tells him that either she s crazy or Howie is trying to kill her She claims several weird incidents happened at sea but when Travis talks to Howie the big friendly lug is hurt and confused at his wife s claims and behaviorConvinced that the man is telling the truth McGee gets Pidge drunk and to admit that she doesn t love Howie Travis assures her that all the odd stuff was just her poor little female mind being unable to cope at failing when she picked a mate Reassured Pidge bangs McGee for a couple of days to prove his theory right She then tells Howie that they ll need to split but he convinces her to sail the boat to meet a buyer at Poga Poga before they call a divorce lawyerSatisfied at his efforts as a marriage counselor and psychologist McGee returns to Florida where he immediately begins nailing even women than usual Whatever could have driven him to this state Examining his own heart McGee finds that he has fallen in love with Pidge and coincidently he gets a letter from her proclaiming her own love and saying that they ll start a life of bliss together right after she gets done with this risky ocean voyage alone with the husband she recently informed of her wish to divorce and that she once thought might be trying to kill herAt first McGee is ecstatic but then he belatedly figures out that Howie is a total sociopath involved with a complicated scheme regarding Pidge s inheritance With no way to reach Pidge all McGee can do is investigate Howie s past and be waiting to see if Pidge is still alive when the boat reaches Poga PogaThis could have been a great story maybe even a turning point in the series if it had played up the angle of how badly McGee botched this and left a woman he cares for at the mercy of a killer Heroes are interesting when they make mistakes and having the star of a series like this completely fail and try to atone for it should make for an entertaining book The problem here is that MacDonald makes McGee such a goddamn know it all The off topic monologues that Travis indulges in are usually one of the charms of the series for me when he was reflecting on life in an increasingly homogenized and corporatized America However in this one it seems like ole Trav knows best about everything from boat maintenance to hotel management to the safety records of cable cars Since his work involves mixing it up with various kinds of shady people he also freuently points out all the ways that the simple sheep of the world get slaughtered by the wolves and how he s much too cautious and smart to fall for any of those tricksSo he looks pretty damn ridiculous because he never once seems to consider the idea that he gave his blessing to a young man he knew little about so that he could marry a wealthy young lady and then sail away with her After Pidge tells him she s worried about being murdered including one incident where the husband admitted that he fired a gun in her direction McGee is so certain that he s diagnosed and treated with sex Pidge s problem that it never even crosses his mind that Howie might be a bad guy Even if you believed that there was no possibility that Pidge had been in danger before it seems odd that McGee doesn t show the slightest concern that she d be alone for weeks at sea with the husband she s leaving I mean what the shit I would expect a cynical student of nature to maybe think that putting a couple with a pending divorce alone in a goddamn boat in the middle of the goddamn ocean wouldn t be a great idea under the best of circumstances let alone when either the husband has tried to kill her already or the cheese has slipped off her crackerMcGee has had some pretty severe character defects through the course of this series but this is the first time I just thought he was a complete moron from page one
