Picks and Pans Review: A Tan and Sandy Silence
by John D. MacDonald
This Travis McGee novel was published first in paperback in 1971 and Lippincott is reissuing it in hardback like others in the series. It has everything McGee fans expect of their freewheeling hero. A past love of his disappears, and her husband comes to McGee looking for her. The villain is worse than most—strong, smart and in love with the business of inflicting hideous pain on others. A nice detachment saves McGee's right-wing sermons from being unbearably pompous, and the settings, Florida and the island of Grenada, are dazzlingly vivid. In the macho school of mystery fiction, this is first-rate. (Lippincott, $8.95)
