I've read the entire Doc Ford series. Publishers Weekly is spot on. Doc Ford is emotionless; even more so than in past novels. In this storyline we hear all about how "bad" he is, yet he comes off as a complete incompetent - too busy daydreaming about how good he is supposed to be. The lengthy diatribe about the overfishing of the sturgeon for caviar is WAY overdone. Instead of making you care, it has almost the opposite reffect. The last several chapters were the better part of the book as there was way more action, and way less mind-numbing musing. This copy will go straight into the library donation bin and I will not purchase any future books. They are only getting worse.

Randy's lasr two books are not up to the expectations I have from reading all of his previous books! A waste of money but I won't be so quick to pre-prder anymore

This newest novel from White is a continuation of the decline of "Doc Ford". I prefer more action and less babble. White should remove himself from the book and get back to writing fiction. Doug

I have always loved the Doc Ford series by Randy White. The book before this was not up to par and this book is just plain bad. As far as I am concerned, RWW has jumped the shark.

This book isn't out yet! But Randy Wayne White does a great job of taking the reader to South Florida or the Caribbean with some really interesting characters. He also runs one of the best restaurants on Sanibel Island! I've met him there; very friendly & personable!

I basically agree with the one and two star responders in the first 19 reviews. Not a particularly enjoyable book and I, too, have read the whole series. Looks like a rush job.

I've been a Randy Wayne White fan for a long time; but this time he has bored mee and made me regret buying one of White's books. White has chosen to devote about 75% of the book to conversations between a redneck steroid freak and a 13 year old Guatamalan girl who is a Joan of Arc fanatic. Never mind that Joan of Arc was herself a nut case. Doc Ford and Tominson are obviously afterthoughts of an author who has spent too much time in churches recently. I'll probably buy at least one more Randy Wayne novel, if only to see if White has gotten over his his religious disability. Don't waste your money on this drivel.

This book is not up to par with RWW's past series. Very disappointing given the enjoyable Doc Ford series. Can you say, "Refund"?

I almost skipped this book because of the reviews, but am glad I didn't! I don't read series expecting them all to be similar in plot & dynamics, and I enjoy the differences as well as always learn from reading these books. (I will also never eat caviar again!)

I had to make myself read this! I could only take so much of Mr Whites writing that he could have done this or that to subdue an agressor but always backs away. Reading this was a challange but I have read and liked some of his other books but not this one!

Doc Ford has never been so inept in dealing with a cast of unbelievable characters in a confusing plot that ends without resolving several issues.

Entertaining, as always, but a very farcical plot, and missing the texture and thoughtfulness of the early books.

The characters are poorly developed. The story just seems to ramble on and on...Seems like a rushed story. Tomlinson seems like a child. Where is the mystery? No cajones mi amigo!

This book was difficult to read. Defintely not RWW best work. Even the original dick and #uck books of Randy Stiker were more enjoyable to read.
