"Night Moves" begins and ends with a bang!A terrific new Doc Ford thriller by New York Times best selling author Randy Wayne White.
Doc, Tomlinson, and top- notch seaplane pilot Dan Futch are on a personal mission to discover what might have happened to Flight 19, five naval torpedo bombers  that took off from Ft Lauderdale in 1945 and mysteriously vanished.
In "Night Moves" opening scene, Doc, Tomlinson and Futch are flying over the Florida Everglades searching for clues when suddenly there is a big bang from the rear of their plane and they are in a downward roller- coaster ride that could kill them. They survive but who is trying to murder who? The wild things in the Everglades are dangerous enough, but back home in friendly Dinkin's Bay the plot thickens with more characters no one should trust. 
Each new Doc Ford book is a a deeper study of characters Doc and Tomlinson, their unique pasts and their unusual friendship. The ending gave me a chill! "Night Moves" is a must read!

Shameless. That's the only word that comes to mind. People have been insisting that this series jumped the shark five years ago, but I was too stubborn to listen because I'm such a big fan of Mister White's earlier work. But the way that he's using the "Doc Ford" series as a tie-in to his new "Hannah Smith" series is abolutely SHAMELESS. Since when do we get cliffhanger endings in the Doc Ford series? Could it be that "All Will Be Answered In Hannah 2"?



The first "Hannah" book was so pooly reviewed that I almost didn't read it, but I acquiesced out of loyalty to Mister White. I now wish I hadn't. He seems to have a very difficult time writing from a woman's point of view. That doesn't make him a sexist, but if it's not in his bailiwick why bother?



And in "Night Moves" we suddenly have Doc pining for this woman whom he barely knows? And by the way, according to the first "Hannah" novel Hannah Smith should be in her early 20s. Doc is AT LEAST in his fifties. I think Mr. Ford stopped aging Doc in real time a while back, but it doesn't matter. Enough has been written about Ford and Tomlinson being products of the hippie sixties. So we have fifty something year old Doc swooning over twenty year old Hannah? Sounds like a bad reality show, but it's not. It's just bad writing. Bad and shameless writing.



One star, but only out of loyalty to a once great series.And if the Hannah character and books continue, I'm done.

    Doc Ford and Company continue to evolve as does RWW's style! This is no linear, perfectly simple beach-chair read, so don't expect to sit down and read it mindlessly. This is historical fiction, mystery, action and romance all woven together in this finest of settings that only RWW can captue (setting is EVERYthing for me!). Enjoyed the added dimensions to the characters, as well as the new ones. Looking forward to White's future endeavors!

    Excellent read. I admit I had never heard of the Doc Ford series

    Excellent read. I admit I had never heard of the Doc Ford series before, and this was my first read of it. Having no background on him at all did not detract at all from the book. I could tell there were several back stories, but book flowed well and kept the interest going throughout. Nice twist on a series - having a super secret agent, but the book is NOT about that, it's just about him in his new life. The story of the missing Navy torpedo bombers was an inspired theme for the book, though the author errors in claiming that the Navy pilots were really Army officers. Don't know how he could make such a bone-headed claim, but the book is a fun read. Though having gone back and read the first four books now, the earlier books seem much more deep and philosophical, and I can see why back then they were calling him the new John MacDonald. Not so much now, but then, the character here IS over 20 years older now.

    I'm a big fan of Randy......

    And have been for years. I have to admit the plot seemed a bit far fetched. That being said all was redeemed with the ending!
