From a beloved master of crime fiction, Pale Gray for Guilt is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat.

Travis McGee’s old football buddy Tush Bannon is resisting pressure to sell off his floundering motel and marina to a group of influential movers and shakers/5().

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/5(). -- John D. MacDonald, Pale Gray for Guilt A good solid Travis McGee romp. MacDonald's novels, like his titles, don't stray from his themes very far.

But like a seafood restaurant you know well, and go to for its quality and execution, the Travis McGee novels are well-executed variations on the same themes: revenge, woman-in-peril, etc/5. PALE GREY FOR GUILT [MacDonald, John D.] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

Pale Gray For Guilt () About book: #42 from macdonald for me just finished The Girl in the Plain Brown Wrapper don't know if that is #8 this one is #9 and I've read 8 or 9 travis mcgee stories now.

i have not found any spoiler type Pale Gray for Guilt book from one story to another although there is some merit to the idea of reading these in line trace the evolution if any of our hero mcgee The Gray and Guilty Sea - Pale Gray for Guilt and The Empty Copper Sea A Desperate Place for Dying - A Purple Place The Gray and Guilty Sea is the first book in a mystery series, and Scott William Carter's Garrison Gage character is obviously inspired by, and I assume is supposed to remind the reader of, John D.

MacDonald's Travis McGee/5. From a beloved master of crime fiction, Pale Gray for Guilt is one of many classic novels featuring Travis McGee, the hard-boiled detective who lives on a houseboat. Travis McGee’s old football buddy Tush Bannon is resisting pressure to sell off his floundering motel and marina to a group of influential movers and shakers/5().

Nevertheless, "Pale Gray for Guilt" is the best of the earlier books because it has a classic McGee story that could be the plot of an old west movie. Bad guys kill the hero's friend and the hero sets out for revenge.5/5(5). 'Pale Gray For Guilt' confirms my suspicions, as we get 'a variation on the old pigeon drop scam', a phrase Jim Rockford uses, word for word, in 'The Farnsworth Stratagem'.

If you are new to Travis McGee, and want to start the series, the first novel, 'The Deep Blue Goodbye', is probably the best, for sheer pace & drive/5(93). ‎Pale Gray for Guilt: A Travis McGee Novel, Book 9 (Unabridged) on Apple Books ‎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/5(3). Pale Grey for Guilt: Not one of MacDonald's 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.4/5. Travis McGee with "his full complete share of mouth," and Meyer, philosophizing all the way, try to help the widow of an old friend who had been squeezed and then altogether eliminated in a real estate project.

Travis has his own romantic troubles this time as he loses a girl before he was ready to dispose of her. This is not MacDonald's best in his established colorfast series but Author: John D.

"Pale Gray for Guilt" was the 8th novel in the Travis McGee series, and I judge it as medium-good McGee. Published init has an excellent contemporary flavor about it that captures the late '60s very well.

The major flaw in the novel is the extraordinarily complicated sting set up by Meyer and Travis as revenge for Tush's demise/5().
