Publisher's Summary

Imagine the worst that can happen. Then imagine again. Here's he stunning new Doc Ford novel by the New York Times best-selling author.

Winter in New York City: Amid sleet and snow, Doc Ford is at the Explorers Club with his new friend, former (and maybe current) British agent Sir James Montbard, researching a jungle expedition, and awaiting the arrival of an attractive U.S. senator with whom Ford has become more than friendly. Her car pulls up, she starts to get out, and the unthinkable happens: an assassination attempt right before their eyes. Ford engages, critically injuring one of the attackers, but the senator vanishes - dead, authorities fear - until they receive her kidnapper's ultimatum.

Ford goes on the hunt, with the help of his friend Tomlinson, on an odyssey that moves to the Florida Keys and beyond. If what happened before was unthinkable, it's nothing compared to what they discover. The senator's captor has a definite agenda, and to make sure she isn't rescued before his 36-hour deadline is up, he's put her someplace he's sure no one will find her: he's buried her alive....

Randy Wayne White's novels have always won praise for their remarkable imagination, intrigue, and some of the best characters in suspense fiction. Nothing, however, will prepare his readers for the extraordinary chilling events of Dead Silence.

    "Like a DOC out of water"

    Story was OK but Doc belongs in Florida. Only thing entertaining about the story was the Kid. Want to hear more about him and relationship to Doc. Needed Tomlinson and the Dinkin's Bay crew to put the humor in the story-sadly missed. Sure hope his next is better and more like the rest of the series.

    "Loved the Narrator as much as the book"

    Another great book from Randy White. I got the book mainly because of the narrator. I had listen to him on another White book and loved him as much as the book. The characters were different, but fit exactly the part that White and me want them to. Try this book and you will not be disappointed.

    Audible has changed my life! Dry , itchy eyes were destroying one of my greatest pleasures - reading. Now I am experiencing books again!

    "Doc without Sanibel"

    I have loved this series, but "Dead Silence" is not the equal of most of the early books. It's got action aplenty, and I liked the new young character, but "Doc" just isn't at his best away from Sanibel, his lab, and the recurring local cast. Prime entries of this series rely on a wonderful sense of the author's love/hate relationship with modern Florida. Perhaps Randy Wayne White is not as enthusiastic as he once was.
    Anyway, don't let this be your first experience of Doc Ford. Go back to the earlier books of the series.

    "A bit different then others in the series"

    I was very pleased with the book. I laughed in parts as I listened to it. I thought it was well written and the book moved along nicely. I think the way all the various characters were brought together at the end in a great way. I was surpised at some of the connections.

    Doc was Doc in the book.. with his glasses held with fishing line . Enjoy the book for what it is.
    Good old fashion fun and a place to escape!

    "Distracting Reader"

    I am a big fan of Randy Wayne White and have read all his previous books. Perhaps because I could never imagine the voice of the reader belonging to Doc Ford, I found his reading style distracting. I stopped listening, bought the book and finished it the same day. It is a great story, just not when performed by this reader.
