I obviously read an earlier edition, so the book was written in the 1950's. Our point of view character is arriving at the company sales convention. No one will be shot, several careers get destroyed and several marriages will also end. Though there are no shootings, there is a lot of destruction breaking out.

so much darker than his previous books... if I didn't know better (i.e., I was reading it when it was first published) I would say this is the end of McGee. And in some ways, it is.

My least favourite of the Travis McGee books. A lot more soliloquies about the sex act than usual. Set in Mexico with a lot of despicable behaviours.
