RARA-AVIS: An opinion of John D. MacDonald

Apropos of GM month:

It is my opinion that John D. MacDonald is the most overlooked and underappreciated of the great PI writers--although technically he is not a PI.

I think what holds readers back is that the wrote first-person from Travis's point of view and his description was often picturesque rather than bleak.

I like some of his non-McGees even better than the McGees.
