Hola Vagabonds – MYSTERY SERIES (books): I used to read (and reread) John D. MacDonald’s Florida-based Travis McGee series. Great writer…great mysteries… the University of South Florida, Department of English (Ed Hirshberg, Editor) used to publish a periodical called The JDM Bibliophile (I recently saw one listed at abebooks.com for $30 – I should have hung onto all my copies!). MacDonald also wrote other novels, but the the McGee books always had a color in the title, from the first (“The Deep Blue Goodbye”) to the last (“The Lonely Silver Rain”). There was a poorly reviewed movie based on “A Deady Shade of Gold” with Rod Taylor as Travis. After McGee, I found the Spenser series by Robert B. Parker (Parker also wrote the Jesse Stone series, which have into TV drams starring Tom Selleck). There was a “Spenser: For Hire” TV series back in the 80s starring Robert Ulrich. More recently I have been reading the Florida-based Doc Ford series by Randy Wayne White. MacDonald and Parker are no longer living, but RWW is still going strong. As to Grisham, I read a couple of his novels and have seen some of the movies based on his books. I’ll have to give Patterson a try one of these days.
