I'm a big fan of McGee too -- an unabashed fanboy, in fact. DEEP BLUE GOODBYE was the first hardboiled crime novel I ever read.

I *highly* recommend A DEADLY SHADE OF GOLD, which is as close as JDM got to an "epic" McGee story, BRIGHT ORANGE FOR THE SHROUD, which has my favorite McGee villain, Boo Waxwell, and THE LONG LAVENDER LOOK, probably my favorite of the series.

But truthfully I like/love them all. :)
