John D MacDonald - Travis McGee 05 - A Deadly Shade of Gold One A SMEAR of fresh blood has a metallic smell. It smells like freshly sheared copper. It is a clean and impersonal smell, quite astonishing the first time you smell it. It changes quickly, to a fetid, fudgier smell, as the cells die and thicken.4/5(32).   A Deadly shade of Gold MacDonald must have been payed by the word for this one. Tedious, wordy, complex. Would have been twice as good with only half the words/5(93). “A Deadly Shade of Gold” at pages is long for a Travis McGee novel, but moves swiftly.

L'homme ultimate sensuel, McGee (this is a reissue) decides to exact reparations for the death of his friend Sam, brutally killed at the moment of his reconciliation with his girl, Nora — leaving behind him the evidence of one of those priceless pre-Columbian gold statuettes.
