Travis McGee The Empty Copper Sea (Spoilers)

Inspired by the response to the Busted Flush thread and reading the novels again after some time.

McGee is an SOB in this one. The “charity f__k”. Giving Billye Jean a note a work. Telling her she killed Noyes. Threatening the manager of the motel where McGee became obnoxiously drunk. And beginning a relationship with Gretel, whose brother he killed. Pumping said brother for information when he thought him to be an innocent mental incompetent.
