characters The Turuoise Lament John D. MacDonald ¶ 8 characters Free download ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ¶ John D. MacDonald K to haunt you And Travis McGee owes a friend a big one Little surprise that he finds himself on a trip to Hawaii to help out his friend’s daughter who is convinced her husband is trying to kill her But Travis can’t find a single thing wrong and. Linda Lewellen nicknamed Pidge from childhood is the lady in distress this time but the connection is weighted with a history Travis and Meyer worked with her father an academic whose real vocation was serious and very lucrative underwater treasure hunting Gutsy impulsive motherless and insecure a 17 year old Pidge stowed away on Travis s boat the Busted Flush and attempted a probative seduction Travis delivered her back to her father of course and a year later Pidge went off to college Two years later her father Professor Ted died in a motorcycle accident and Pidge inherited her father s boat the Trepid and a sizable trust fund Mom dead Dad dead college boyfriend dumped it was a difficult time for Pidge Vulnerable Pidge married stolid Howie Brindle an engaging deck hand who was helping to maintain the Trepid It all happened so uickly The couple embarked on a round the world cruise on the Trepid and now a year later Pidge has called Travis from Hawaii She s troubled Travis and Meyer both took a paternal interest in Pidge and the memory of the 15 year old innocent he first met is still strong Moreover Travis owes a debt to Professor Ted The professor saved his life in a particularly ugly barroom attack A vicious drunk went after Travis with a metal studded fishing clubTHE TURUOISE LAMENT finds Travis in a contemplative mood Pidge is no longer an adolescent and when he meets her in Hawaii the realization though pleasant is also a reminder that Travis is not getting any younger Mortality is a persistent presence in this book Travis has a nightmare about the bully that nearly killed him until Professor Ted intervened only in the dream he dies Each new year at Bahia Mar seems to be a woozy remembrance of past faces dimmed over time The count is increasing of those who have moved on retired or died life s passages laid out like a deck of cards always ending with the ace of spades The timing is also bad for Travis Another new year is approaching He cannot help but notice the age difference between fellow diver Frank Hayes and Hayes employees at his Seven Seas Ltd salvage operation Although it s been only a year since he last saw him Travis barely recognizes Rine Houk a veteran boat dealer Houk is wearing an ill fitting rug attempting unsuccessfully to look younger The effect is embarrassing and Travis tells him as much A major event in the story is that Meyer passes out and is rushed by ambulance to the hospitalTravis is at first skeptical of Pidge s fears and he persuades her that she is the victim of her own repressed stress Then Frank Hayes shows up Frank had worked on Professor Ted s crew along with Travis and Meyer and has an interesting story to relate as well as a uestion that up to then had been overlooked Travis digs further He begins to unravel some lies that had been buried in the pastOf the three Travis McGee books I ve read so far this was my favorite There s a consistency in the action Travis wavers between two images adolescent Pidge and adult Lew Ellen When the inevitable occurs between Travis and Pidge Travis s mind fills with a collage of memories That and other memories of her were strangely merged with the sweet and immediate realities of her the here and nowness of her so that I seemed to live in the past and present all at onceShe was a temptation out of the past served up on some kind of eternal lazy Susan so that it had come by once again and this time we had taken it p87 I fell in love with the character of Meyer in THE SCARLET RUSE and Meyer has a large and active role in this book providing names of contacts alternate hypotheses and uiet erudition to Travis A typical example is a pithy uote from Gian Gravina A bore is a person who deprives you of solitude without providing you with company p179 The story follows a classic pattern Untruths are gradually stripped away Polished manners and wealthy facades dissolve into underlying corruption and greedy self interest The plot was totally satisfying a thriller that begins slowly and gradually accelerates as danger mounts with each tick of the clockNumerous supporting characters are introduced They do than simply nudge the plot along They come alive through physical description and mannerisms One of the most memorable is Gabe Marchman a retired wartime photographer whose career ended when he stepped on a booby trap Currently he is a troubleshooter and high priced consultantThe customary rants this time against lawyers and the despoiling of Samoa by big business interests as always have a contemporary resonance view spoilerFinally there is a wistful conclusion that pulls the reader in closer to Travis McGee Two people totally blissfully blindly in love And gradually it became apparent that there was only one person in love and the other one was merely repeating lines which had once been spontaneous going through the motions which used to be bliss Excuses have a hollow sound Lies have an earnest tacky melody p286 OK time for another Plymouth Gin hide spoiler
