The Deep Blue Good-by: A Travis McGee Novel by John D. MacDonald

Years ago I read all the Travis McGee mysteries. They all have a color in the title, so it seemed a good year to re-read them all. 

In this first book in the series, McGee seeks to retrieve a fortune in gems smuggled into the U.S. at the end of WWII by the father of his client, Cathy Kerr, a down-and-out dancer. Cathy's father died in prison without ever telling his family about the fortune. Unfortunately, he did discuss it with a former inmate named Junior Allen., a sociopathic, ruthles deviant who seduced Cathy and lived with her until he could locate the jewels her father hid on the family land. Then he dumped Cathy and began living the good life.
