    Part of the Doc Ford Series - this book is the most violent and graphic of the group

    I am a fan of Randy Wayne White. I live in SW Florida, and it is interesting to read books set in my home area. Doc Ford, his recurring James Bond-type character, is once again the lead player, and his best friend, the aging hippie, once again plays a lead role.

    This book is my least favorite of the series though, because the villian uses fire to burn and scar his victims. Most of Mr. White's books are a little more comic-violence with less graphic detail, and more satisfying reads to me, at least.

    Doc's one true love, a female dictator's wife in a mythical tropical country, surfaces once again in this book. But the villian - ugh. Doc Ford once again assumes his secret James-Bond like identity to go and rescue a young boy - to say more would give away some of the story that would be better left for the reader to uncover.

    I truly enjoy reading the adventures of Doc Ford, and I like the writing style of Randy Wayne White, but I think if I knew what I was getting into when i purchased this one, I would have skipped this particular chapter - I still see visions of the pain inflicted by the villian on his victims when I think about the book and the series. Ugh.

    My recommendation - skip this one unless you can handle the graphic violence better than I can, and read the rest of the series. It is a great series.
