Click HERE for today's column, which introduces an old "friend" of mine, Travis McGee. McGee, a fictional hero of a series of adventure/mystery novels, would feel right at home in Saipan. And the books would certainly appeal to a lot of folks in the islands who enjoy an independent lifestyle.
Although Saipan's Bestseller books can order the novels (no, they don't carry them as normal stock; yes, they're still in print), I didn't have space to list the titles in my column, but this link (a great site indeed) has the information
The photo here (from Wikipedia) is of the first edition of the first McGee book, The Deep Blue Goodbye, published in 1964. I like the old, retro covers, the modern ones don't have as much character.
