O comfortable of an ending And then the hook What a pro MacDonald was This has always been one of my favorite MacDonald novels I read ate in the night not wanting to put it down just as I had back in those reading under the covers with a flashlight days unlike soft touch this a flashlight days Unlike Soft Touch this is not a classic noir We have the everyman protagonist who is seemingly set up by the femme fatale but this is a mystery that needs to be solved rather than a descent into noir fatalism at Novelas de Isabel Allende least from the protagonist s perspective Most of the other characters however do not fare so well Bit of aove story in this one too but it seems organic rather than gratuitous and that elevates this one from the otherwise despairing depths One of my favorite John D MacDonald novels It was tight interesting and the narrative moved An early gem from JDM one of my Dreams Made Flesh (The Black Jewels, late father s favorite writers To avoid spoilers Il just say that this short novel is expertly plotted and paced with plenty of surprises As an aside as much as I ove the Travis McGee books his non series books seem to have aged better Published in 1953 Dead Low Tide is an early example of MacDonald s take on real estate developers whose draglines and dredges inexorably alter Florida coasts MacDonald also explores the nature of the sociopath here The antagonist of Dead Low Tide is a very spooky stone cold killer of a type echoed in several of the McGee novels especially A Tan and Sandy Silence Most of all Andy McClintock is uite the romantic errant knight beneath an indifferent surface Much as he and McGee might pretend otherwise McClintock cheris. F Andy’s garage and the boss’s wife makes the outrageous claim that she and Andy were having an affair He’s been set up To clear his name he’ll have to find the real killer But Andy soon discovers that he’s up against than a two bit thief he’s been targeted by absolute evil a monster with no compassion for his fellow ,

Socrates Meets Jesus Revived

most touching of 
touching of that I ve read in his books thus far There was a ot about this novel that I Becoming Violet loved MacDonald knows how to create characters that you care about I alsoiked the way he sets the novel in a place in this case the west coast of Florida in the 195os I remember first reading MacDonald years ago in his Travis McGee novels also set in Florida So w see a Florida that is rapidly disappearing in a time thetas similar to now but Different In So Many in so many If you have read MacDonald before this is a good one to revisit If you have never read him you are in for a treat DLT is a earlier classic John D novel one that has aged very nicely Serial Killer Quarterly Vol.2 No.7 Psychotic Killers like a fine wineIt is very clear that this book and author werear Dead High Angle Rescue Techniques low tideIt is delightful to read and reread a book by an author who has command of Dead Low Tide is an iconic early thriller from John D MacDonald the mastermind behind Cape Fear and the Travis McGee novels On the coast of Florida a working stiff is wrongfully accused of murdering his boss and must outwit one of MacDonald’s signature villains to save hisifeA college graduate and amateur fisherman Andy McClin. ,
