Just picked up "John D MacDonald" by David Geherin. Although it focuses on the McGees, it has a good 50 pages dedicated to the standalones. I just ordered a copy of "A Flash of Green" on the basis of it being one of JDM's
"most impressive and ambitious" novels (I seem to remember it being recently touted on the list as well).

George, I know a lot of people rate "The Damned" as nothing more than an imitation Hemmingway. I'm not one of those. I think it's superb. Of those I've read on your list, they're all extremely good, with the exception of
"One More Sunday", which is one of two JDM's I couldn't finish.
