Travis McGee #11: Dress Her In Indigo by John D MacDonald (Gold Medal T2127 – 1969)

Into the freaked-out world of expatriate American kids grooving in sunny Mexico comes Travis McGee – in search of the shadowed past of a once-lovely girl…

The wench was dead – but Travis McGee was backtracking her wild sad trail through the bizarre world of the dropouts and drug freaks who found haven in Mexico.

McGee would need all his cool, all his insight, to live up to the estimate of the rich and beautiful woman who perhaps held the key to the puzzle. “You disconcert me,” the woman said. “Perhaps it is part of your cleverness, part of practicing an illusion, to be so muscular, so fit, and to have about you a kind of indolence, a flavor of amusement. You are more complex than the kind of man who is paid to strike a ball with a stick, or to fly to another star. You have a living style that contents you.”

Contentment? Not this trip.
