I enjoy Doc and Tomlinson. the one thing I wish they would do is keep the same reader through the stories. the latest reader kills the book for me.
The action seems to move fluidly with this narrator.
He is a troubled character who always seems to do the right thing, even if it is not in his best interest.
The scene with the porcupine fish was very inventive. I had just seen two of these the previous day to hearing the episode.
No. the book is not moving in that way, it is more male like.
This book was so good that I want to listen to the entire series.
Hopefully the narration remains consistent .
Tell us about yourself!
I did listen to the whole book.
Dick Hill is the best thing about this offering.

A well written mystery book which is well thought out and constructed. The main characters are believable and likable. The book is a bit short on action, but keeps the reader engaged through its creative plots twists. I picked up the book hoping it would focus a bit more on the island lifestyle but overall not a bad book. I gave it 3 stars for my rating but if mysteries are your thing then it’s probably right up your alley and will like it better than I did.
Wonderful performance with all types of voices and acents.
Audiobook downloaded from audible.com, read by Dick Hill. Pretty good - I've read a couple of the later books in this series and they were better, but I wanted to read the whole series and start at the beginning. This one was a bit Stuart Woods-ish in that beautiful women appear out of nowhere and randomly want to have sex with Ford for no apparent reason :) But not bad, and I plan to read the whole series.
I visited Sanibel island years ago with my father and find that White really captures the mood of the area. I'd like to go down again and have dinner at his restaurant
This is my first audiobook. I bought it after meeting the author by happenstance and thought I would check it out.
Loved the suspense.
I feel he did a great job establishing all the characters. I thought he did an exceptional job with Jeff.
If I could have, I certainly would.
What can I say ... I am hooked. I already downloaded the next 2 in the series. :)
Okay, so I am an admitted Doc Ford fanantic. I started reading his books a couple of years ago at the library and kind of read them out of order. The first books in the series I never had a chance to read. So this book was good....But the narrator that does this book is not the caliber of the narrator of the more recent books. The story was good, but I ache for the more mature and seasoned writing style he shows in his later books. Still I don't regret getting the book, I wish he would churn out more books!
The most interesting aspect of the book was seeing Doc Ford in love with the woman in Masagua. I've met people like Doc Ford, who had a heart broken and never was able to feel this way again. The least interesting was the reappearance of Doc's childhood friend...Raif I think. That part of the book was predictable and inconsequential to the story.
mystery, characters, humor and romance
I bought this book because of Dick Hill --I will buy about anything he reads, because he is my favorite narrator. I have bought other audiobooks that are probably a good read but I have quit listening because of the boring voice of the narrator.
The narrator would be great doing some old time gumshoe novels or older characters, but it's just a touch too gravely and a whole heap of insipid when it comes to the females. The different character's voices are hard to take.
The book itself seems like it'd be interesting but I've given up on the audio and will probably read in text to save myself a headache.
I do have to wonder... Randy... when writing a love scene... "iridescent pubic hair"? Really? Oy vey. That whole "evening" was painful to hear in audio.
The rating of this book is a guess on my part. Dick Hill's narration made it impossible to give an informed opinion. I don't generally care for Mr. Hill's narration and his effort here was one of his worst.
