The long, slow gray-green lift and fall of the ground swell was all of a towering five inches high, so I took it a mile off the beaches and fooled with the rpm and the fuel flowmeter, until she was riding right and sounded right and just a hair under 3,000 on each of the 120-horse stern-drive units.

I read this for the first time forty years ago in my twenties. Then, again now, in my sixties. I have always loved JDM's vocabulary, stretched metaphors, and worldly philosophizing. As a 20 yr. old I focused naturally on the glandular hyperbole of Travis McGee's understanding of female sexuality. Avant Guard for the late 60's. But now, with a little more life under my belt, I cherish the sense of grasshopper he represents. I look back and realize it may have played a large role in my own life and the rereading provides help in minimizing the regrets. Pale Gray for Guilt plays a pivotal role in distilling that which is McGee. In this story his Quioxytic journey is represented in its purist form. Friends to help, multiple dragons to slay, fiery temptation at his feet, and a clear self analysis and uncertainty of philosophy and motivations. This year I have two sons in their twenties. They have read and enjoyed more contemporary heroes such as Spenser and Reacher - (NOT the Tom Cruise version!) They also both enjoyed the JDM Classic The Girl, The Gold Watch, etc.. I will ask them both to read this story. I think it will help us all to bridge the generation gap in ways that I can only imagine as they and I continue to sometimes tilt our lances.

I first read this several decades ago, I have worn out of given away a number of paperback copies, so I'm gradually back-filling the Travis McGee saga in hardback (I have 16 so far, including THE LAST ONE LEFT which is only peripheral to McGee since only the boat, La Munequita is shared with PALE GRAY FOR GUILT). Also provides the back-story for Puss Killian (LONELY SILVER RAIN).
As usual McGee, Meyer and the Bahia Mar gang out-con the con men, get the money back and gain revenge as well as life provides.
As with any of the McGee tales, what happens varies only in the details from book to book - the the way in which MacDonald tells the tale is the true star of each story. MacDonald was a truly gifted writer and often overlooked because of the genre (thrillers) and medium (paperback) in which he wrote. He is among the very limited group of writers I can re-read again and again and still find enjoyment in the recounting.

Twelve dollars each for popular fiction novels half a century old? And yet, I keep buying them. I was around in the ‘60s, but I just discovered the McGee series. The writing style alone is worth the read. Each book is two hundred plus pages of immersively vivid, whimsically ironic entertainment. The dated aspects are marginal to the stories; most of the action could easily be set in today’s world. I’m reading the McGee series in sequence. I hope he maintains his idealism, personal and professional, to the end.

I like the feel and tempo of MacDonald's Travis McGee books; I have read several of them. Pale Gray begins with the usual feel as it grips the reader and pulls them into McGee's world. But the middle ground in this story seemed slow like walking across a big farm field. But MacDonald makes up for the slowness in the final chapter, closing up all the loose ends with a flourish.

I have been reading MacDonald since 1967. They are without question the best i have ever read, and the Travis McGee series is the best series I have ever read. The economy of language used by the author has never been duplicated in anything I have ever read. The stories all hold up after fifty years and multiple readings. The gold standard.

There was more than one John D. MacDonald....
I wouldn't be reading his Travis McGee tales over and over....
I pay tribute to MacDonald's writing each time I reluctantly come to the end of one of his McGee novels.

I loved the series and have read them many times. This one is the absolutely best of the series. Here he is in all his glory using every skill and tool. "Tush was my friend" and what a friend he had in Travis McGee.
I've been working my way through this series, albeit slowly, and it has been as good as advertised.

Until this one.

Too much reflecting, not much mystery, too little action.

Hope the next one resumes the level of the prior novels.
