The Dreadful Lemon Sky (1975)
The sixteenth Travis McGee novel by John D. MacDonald. I'm close to reading them all now, and this one, although not the best, is probably better than any crime novel written this year. Travis flirts around the edges of the burgeoning Marijuana trade in Southern Florida. Like some of the later MacDonald novels, this has a pretty bleak and wistful feel to it.
