Once you're read a few of John MacDonal's Travis MacGee novels (and there are lost), they start to run together a bit, but not in a bad way. You know what you're going to get and MacDonald always delivers a good story with some nice characterization, sharp dialogue, and casual sexism. You can tell the MacGee novels because they all have a color in the title. You might also like Charles Willeford's Hoke Mosley novels.
