Professional beach bum and 'knight errant' Travis McGee goes up against psychotic body-builder Terry Bartell. McGee pulls out all the stops when he joins a Carribean cruise to bring the killer to justice.
Sam Elliott and Kathryn Ross did a Television movie based on the Mc Gee novel "The Empty Copper Sea" released in 1983, and there is a current production of "The Deep Blue Goodbye" to star Christian Bale in the works. Chronologically, this was the first of MacDonald's McGee novels; hopefully it will lead to a series.
McGee's Rolls Royce, Miss Agnes, is a British car. It even has a European license plate. But since McGee no doubt registered the car in Florida, the plate is out of place.
Television and video versions censor arm breaking fight scene.
