Gray is the titled color for this Travis McGee novel. Once again, John D.
MacDonald's hero comes to the rescue. A longtime friend of McGee's is dead, murdered
by some ruthless individuals who could care less that he had a wife and three children.
McGee, sometimes known as that “amiable boat bum” (he only takes cases when he's out
of money; the rest of the time he stays aboard his houseboat, “The Busted Flush,” enjoying
life!) is determined to exact justice and revenge, as the victim was his friend. Before that
happens, however, he gets involved in some nasty, organized crime scenes.
