I thought this was pretty average. I have read all 3 novels but only have notes for 2 of them.Pale Grey for Guilt:Not one of MacDonalds better works. This one has the feel of a story that is a bit thin of plot so some boiler-plating was added to stretch it out. I think MacDonalds works are better when there is a bit more mystery involved. The ending was pretty good and not expected. That was the highlight and I would be hard-pressed to come up with anything else.

One problem was that Travis Mcgee is portrayed as a sort of vigalante con man rather than the soldier of fortune seen in many of the other stories. I prefer the soldier of fortune.Tan & Sandy Silence:Like most of the Travis McGee stories, this was more adventure than mystery. The actual story was a bit thin but it was fleshed out with McGees musings and deeper than normal treatement of a lot of the chatacters. The bad guy was very bad but the author did not treat us to a fight between him and McGee. MacDonald does this a lot.

Good on story and dialogue and character development but weak on the actual action. Oh well, it was still a pretty good story, one of the better ones. I give it a C+.
