The stunning new thriller - the 20th Doc Ford novel - from New York Times best-selling author Randy Wayne White.
Both Doc Ford and his friend Tomlinson have buried secrets. Now one of those secrets is about to come alive - with a vengeance.
While trying to solve one of Florida's most profound secrets, Doc Ford is the target of a murder attempt by someone who wants to make it look like an accident. Or is the target actually Tomlinson? Whatever the answer, the liveaboards and fishing guides at Dinkin's Bay on Sanibel Island are becoming increasingly nervous - and wary - after a near-poisoning, a plane crash, and an explosion make it apparent that Ford and Tomlinson are dangerous companions.
What their small family of friends don’t know is that their secret pasts make it impossible for the two of them to go to the law for help. There is an assassin on the loose, and it is up to them to find the killer - before he (or she) finishes the job.

Just loved Doc more in the early days.
Characters seem a bit disjointed( no pun intended),
and Doc doesn't seem to have the same
joie de vivre.
Early books the absolute best.
As much as I love George Guidal, I was shocked that the producer or even
Mr. Guidal himself, would not have taken the time to find out how some
words " down here " are actually pronounced!
For those of us who live in the area or even for those who visit,
99.9 % know how Sanibel, Boca Grande, and even the word Tarpon!,
would be pronounced by the locals, and that certainly would include Doc Ford!!
I don't assume RRW ever listened to this one or he
would have had to get out his secret box.
I am sorry, but the chronic mispronunciations ruined the book for me, and
I could not finish listening.
I enjoyed the story. Tomlinson and Ford have become some of my favourite characters. I did not like the reader of this story though. Ford is apparently 40-ish? But the narrator sounded like a sixty year old. Was distracting.
So I've read almost all of the Doc. Ford book Series. The narrator is the same for almost all of the books. For some reason, Tomlinson's voice is a bit different in this book than all of the rest. I've gotten so used to the narrator's representation of my favorite hippie's voice, that I found the change very distracting in this book.
With that negative out of the way, overall the book was really good. As with almost the entire series, I can't seem to put it down, and I seem to always finish the books in only a few car rides. In this case, I was visiting Seattle and Portland. I don't remember much of the car ride or trip, but I remember the book! I like Hannah enough, that I am looking forward to the next Doc. Ford book, but to quench my thirst for more, I may have to start reading the Hannah series now.

Doc Ford is just good stuff to listen too. Marian seems to be developing a very interesting new friend that will provide Randy some new material to explore.
I had the chance to go to a book signing and hear Randy talk, he is well worth the time.
