Travis McGee is the single successor to Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe and in some ten paperback appearances has acquired an open-end following. This is one of his earlier cases in which he retrieves a creamy Eurasian girl with amber eyes thrown off a bridge. She's a hooker whom he hopes to salvage otherwise--only she's killed--and he's unwilling to forget her or forget why. . . . The action is overwhelming and then there's that spanking display of the vernacular.
