Publisher's Summary

Captiva by Randy Wayne White is now available for the first time in audio!

"We'll drop anything we're doing to read a new Randy White novel and be glad we did." (Denver Post)

Randy Wayne White is acclaimed as "wildly inventive" (The San Diego Union-Tribune), "a wonderful writer" (Paul Theroux), "a fine storyteller" (Peter Matthiessen), and "the rightful heir to John D. MacDonald" (The Tampa Tribune-Times). In his fourth Doc Ford novel, he delivers a wicked thriller that sends government agent turned marine biologist Doc Ford into dangerous new waters as a Florida fishing dispute escalates into a deadly war that reaches across the ocean...

Hooray!

So glad to see this appear on Audible. Not only one of the best of Randy Wayne White's Doc Ford series, but the added attraction of a George Guidall narration.

Captiva has all the landmarks of a great Doc Ford adventure: great information about South Florida and the lives of its long-time inhabitants, the wonderful regular characters in this world, anger at the unfairness and injustice of the modern world, romance, and edge-of-your-seat adventure.

Please bring the other missing parts of this series on board at Audible! This is a treat!

Good story

Love Doc Ford. This is a good story, but the performer sounds too old as the doc Ford character

Routine fantasy, elevated by the performer

The story is a routine fantasy of male prowess -- sexual, physical, intellectual -- and self sufficiency. Strong performance by George Guidall makes it listenable.

Hannah

Huge RWW fan, but he confused me with this one. Great book as most always, but was thrown off a bit buy Doc Ford and Hannah Smith’s relationship. Do not want to throw out any spoilers, but here we are in 2018 and Ford is just meeting and becoming involved with Hannah Smith, yet in 2012-13-14 she was a guide and their relationship is far advanced. Won’t say more, but if anyone could enlighten me a bit or clear my ignorance I would truely appreciate.
Still another great RWW listen.
Thanks

Best ever

Just found this author since George Guidall is the narrator. It is well written, has a sense of humor, and kept me guessing on what would happen next. I highly recommend this book and the author’s other books that uses the same characters
