Publisher's Summary

Author of best-selling mysteries including Mangrove Coast, Randy Wayne White sets his novels in the Florida waters he knows so well - he is a veteran fishing guide and contributor to Outside magazine. Ten Thousand Islands is the seventh in the Doc Ford series.

Fifteen years ago, a teenage girl found an ancient gold medallion on a small island off the Florida gulf coast. Soon she was having nightmares and later was found hanging from a tree. Although the death was ruled a suicide, the girl's mother, Della, is now sure there was foul play. Her trailer has been vandalized, and her daughter's coffin raided. When Della comes to Doc for help, the mysterious gold medallion plunges the Florida marine biologist into a perilous search for answers.

Filled with suspense and highly charged atmosphere, Ten Thousand Islands received rave reviews from critics. Ron McLarty's dramatic narration highlights its gripping mixture of ancient ritual and modern evil.

    "How not to leave a boat."

    I love to fish and have enjoyed the Doc Ford stuff, this story has a GREAT ending. Life sucks when you get sea sick. A little slow at the start but, the payoff, at the end, for me was well worth it.

    Story
    "Twists and Turns"
    If you could sum up Ten Thousand Islands in three words, what would they be?

    Intrigue, Suspense, Unexpected


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The unusual twists and turns of the story, I never could second guess the author.


    Any additional comments?

    The descriptions of the Florida terrain and the mystique of the 1000 islands kept my interest and curiosity going strong. The history of the area and the Indians was fascinating. I was completely surprised at the end to hear the author describe the actual case from which he took so much for his story. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a story with a different twist.

    Story
    "One of my early on favorites"
    If you could sum up Ten Thousand Islands in three words, what would they be?

    Fast paced, interesting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ten Thousand Islands?

    When the person told Doc Ford what he had seen on the Island.


    What about Ron McLarty’s performance did you like?

    I have said before I always feel like Doc Ford himself is telling me a story


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and I think it was pretty much a 2-3 day listen.


    Any additional comments?

    We have a lot on a little Island off of Marco, and I could swear it was the island in the book.

    Story
    "Awesome, like the TV show The Finder, but better"

    I love this book, I really do. It's like a better, more substantial version of the tv show The Finder. (Its a spin-off from the show Bones) Seriously, listen and enjoy. I'm pretty sure if I find this book in paperback, I'll buy it and actually read it with my eyeballs.
