RARA-AVIS: What about John D. MacDonald?

From: Jeff Vorzimmer ( jvorzimmer@austin.rr.com)

Looking over Hard Case Crime's list of new and forthcoming novels, I see a pattern. A lot of early books by writers later known for series. An early pre-Helm Hamilton, a non-Parker Stark, a pre-Shell Scott Prather.

What about an early John D. MacDonald, pre-Travis McGee? There's literally dozens to choose from. He's a good writer, but I could never get into the Travis McGee books. Too contrived for my tastes.
