This is the first edition of the second Travis McGee novel. For a long time I thought that the childish eraser marks behind the girl were a flaw on my copy.

I never cared much for the story. In my opinion, this is the poorest book in the series.

Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am the Czech version of Nightmare in Pink, titled Růžová noční můra (Pink Nightmare).

    Am I alone in preferring the later re-imaginings of these Ron Lesser covers with a closer view of the women and the shapes? I love the simplicity of form and how clean it looks, in addition to the removal of the McGee portrait, which I feel detracts a little from the artwork. No offense to John McDermott, if he’s perusing this from the great beyond, but I like my protagonists undefined so that I can create them for myself.
