The Beach Girls (1959)

One day I will have read everything written by John D. MacDonald, and that will be a sad day, but till then ...

Another very good book, this one about a group of uncivilized boozy boatbums in the waning days before their rundown marina is gentrified. Yes, this book actually has nothing to do whatsoever with its title or its description. It contains a long description of one crazed party, and a couple of sick and twisted murders. There's no beach mentioned in the book, but plenty of girls, young and old.
