The men who killed Tush Bannon knew he was a nice guy with a nice wife and three nice kids - trying to run a small marina on the Florida coast. They also knew he was in the way of a big land development scheme. Once they killed him, they figured they were on easy street. But Tush Bannon was Travis McGee's friend, and McGee could be one tough adversary when protecting a widow and her kids.
Pale Gray For Guilt
One of the best of John D. Macdonald's famous Travis Mcgee series. A superb page turner marred only by the choice of narrator. Robert Petkoff did a great job of reading but in my opinion did not "carry" the image of Travis well. Possibly I was spoiled by the Mcgee audio book series back in the cassette days narrated by the incredible Darren McGavin. I am sure that in time I will grow to accept Mr. Petkoff as a replacement for Mr. McGavin, but not yet.
