As I've mentioned before, I always like to read a novel that takes place where I am traveling. I picked up one by John D. MacDonald. His hero is a feisty roustabout Robin Hood type named Travis McGee, who gets money back from scam artists and returns it to the rightful owner. I had read several in the series some years ago when I was going to a friend's cottage in Haliburton that had a collection of MacDonald's books. It was a rollicking read and took place in Fort Lauderdale very close to where the Queen Vic was moored.

By the Way - Make sure you pack Gravol for a cruise. When the wind direction makes the ship roll it can play havoc with your balance, i.e. seasick.
