Publisher's Summary

Doc Ford wrestles more than one kind of demon in this stunning novel from the New York Times-best-selling author. Many dangers lurk in the deep - the worst of them are human.

Thirty minutes into what should have been an easy, beginner-level dive in a remote Florida lake, the rim of a cave collapses, trapping two of Doc Ford's friends. Ford himself manages to escape and quickly surfaces to find help - but that's when his troubles only begin. Two men are waiting for him on the shore, and they are not the kind of men you want to meet at any time. Murderers and ex-cons, they're intent on diving to the bottom of the very deep lake and uncovering the remains of a legendary plane wreck there, supposedly loaded with Cuban treasury gold. Ford's ex­pertise is just what they need. And if he doesn't want to help? He can die. His friends? They can die, too. In fact, they can die right now.

As the hours tick away, two mortal struggles unfold simulta­neously, one above and one below. Neither outcome is certain, no man is safe. And in the deep shadow, only death awaits.

The doctor is in: listen to more of our Doc Ford thrillers.

    Story
    "Hmmm, maybe abridged"
    If you could sum up Deep Shadow in three words, what would they be?

    To much fill


    If you’ve listened to books by Randy Wayne White before, how does this one compare?

    5 out of a possible 10 compared to his other works.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    George is always awesome...


    Any additional comments?

    A good story, However I think the book was written and a publisher said... Mr. White we need more words... so the fill started.... Over all still a good listen...

    "boring"

    I think to enjoy this book at all, you have to be a Doc Ford fan AND a scuba diver. I am both and I found this book boring. It might have been an ok short story. But there's just not enough of anything there for it to be a good book. For someone who anxiously awaits every Randy Wayne White book, I was disappointed.

    "Huge disappointment"

    This book could have been half as long and still been boring and predictable. I have listened to all of the prior books in the Doc Ford series. This badly needed editing and in fact could have been nothing more than an interesting scene in another book. It was way to predictable and repetitive.

    I enjoyed the storyline, the character development and the writing. This is one of the better books in the series in my opinion.

    Story
    "Doc Ford Does It Again"

    As a long time fan reading the Doc Ford stories, I thought I would try an audio version. The story itself was on par with most of the novels, while being a tad uneven. The story is simple enough, Doc and friends go scuba diving only to mixed up with a couple of killers looking for a means to escape the law. What transpires provides enough intrigue and drama to maintain your interest.

    I found the narration clear enough, but voice of the narrator sounds just a little to folksy for my taste. For me, it just did not work for Doc Ford.

    "Deep Shadow"

    Always enjoy Doc Ford.
    George Guidall is an excellent story teller although I preferred Dick Hill.
    George makes Doc sound like he is in his 70's.

    "A different Doc Ford story"

    It's set in central Florida for the most part. The story switches between some crazy escapees and Doc in a small inland lake. The story brought you in fast and held you until the end.

    Story
    "Borrrring"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This was very hard to listen to ---It just went on and on ---The story is quite straight forward but White drags it out far too long


    Would you ever listen to anything by Randy Wayne White again?

    I might . but not racing out to get one


    What aspect of George Guidall’s performance would you have changed?

    His perfomance was OK


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I will have to think about that


    Any additional comments?

    Pick up something else

    "Excellent adventure with outstanding narration"

    You can listen to this audiobook on its own, but don't be surprised when you find yourself buying more stories in the series. As usual, George Guidall's wonderful narration adds depth to the characters, giving each character his own voice and personality.
