Re: RARA-AVIS: An opinion of John D. MacDonald

DEADLY WELCOME is one of the non-series novels that I just read. It's a pretty good story about the small-town guy going home again with a mission. He winds up solving a murder and (naturally) falling in love. The villain in this one is great, worthy of the McGee books, but there's a bit too much of that sappy dialogue between the man and woman that drives some people up the wall. I'm not sure anyone every talked like that, even in the 1950s.

(I'm cheating here, since this was originally published as a Dell First Edition and then reprinted as a Gold Medal.)
