Blurb: 
MacDonald is at his masterful best here with atmosphere, plot, political intrigue, and hilarious dialog complete with with accents and attitude. This is the first of the Travis books which presage the drugs-and-corruption-in-Florida tone of the "Miami Vice" TV series, which debuted in 1982.

While retracing the wanderings of a murdered friend, Travis gets involved with the antique treasures business; Cuban refugees and their feverish anti-Castro plottings; high-and-low-life in a (fictitious) Mexican fishing port; and extreme Hollywood-style decadence. He also gets into, and out of, the clutches of a rich, beautiful and formidable jet setter who is looking for a replacement for her previous arm-ornament.
