After reading one of the Doc Ford Books, I acquired them all in bunches and loved every one. I only have three left and I will savor them more slowly to prolong the enjoyment. Not a dud in the bunch.

I have read a number of cover blurbs that compare some author to another. The cover blurbs on White's books compare Doc Ford to the late John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee series. Yeah, right, I thought. Well in this case, amazingly, it was true! On a scale of 1-10, with McGee being 10, this series is at least a nine. Having read four of the series, I can vouch for that. Can't wait to read the rest. Keep up the good work, Mr. White.

The only thing wrong with this book is that it ended. I tried and tried to only read a few chapters a day, but that was impossible. I could have read this book forever. Shark River is on par with 10,000 Islands and Sanibel Flats as Mr. White's best work. Doc Ford is a literary descendant of Travis McGee and might even be a better character. Mr. White does a wonderul job of describing scenery and makes great use of believable dialogue. Doc's continued frustration with his deceased uncle is vividly portrayed. The relationship between Ford and Tomlinson is as amusing as always with their very different characters providing perfect juxtaposition and conflict, adding spice to the gumbo of the plot.

The growing legion of Doc Ford fans eagerly awaiting the eighth book in this popular adventure series are richly rewarded with the release of Shark River. Fast-paced action, vividly drawn characters and a plot laced with intrigue and suspense leave no doubt that Randy Wayne White is at the top of his game. Doc Ford's marine studies on the idyllic island of Guava Key are abruptly interrupted when he inadvertently finds himself in the middle of a deadly kidnapping plot involving Colombian drug traffickers and the daughter of a powerful international diplomat. Heavy fire power, bone cracking combat and careening high powered test boats leave the reader breathless.....and this is just in the opening chapters. The ensuing action threatens to reveal details of Doc's shadowy paramilitary past that he has taken great care to bury. Add the complications of a beautiful Bahamian woman claiming to be Doc's sister, a nasty pair of Rastafarian thugs, a trail of hidden treasure and a menacing atmosphere of life-threatening danger, and you have the ingredients for a gripping story that the reader will be hard pressed to put down. Once again the author creates a vivid sense of place with his descriptions of southwestern Florida, and his trademark of brilliantly researched detail and a surprise twist ending place Shark River at the top of the must read pile.

He didn¿t want to go, but he did, yes he did. Doc Ford is happy to hide in his little boat in the middle of nowhere in Florida so that his past can never catch up to his present. However, his friend Tomlinson persuades Doc to accompany him to Guava Key where Doc, a marine biologist, can enjoy a working vacation.

However, his idyllic time ends when he notices two weird looking boats and hears the squawking of wild parrots that leads him to realize that assailants have attacked two female joggers. Doc rescues them, but is shot, and the cops and FBI question him. They conclude he is hiding something. When one of the victims is discovered to be Lindsey Harrington, daughter of a super important White House basement diplomat, interests in Doc turn international. Lindsey¿s dad enlists him to keep his daughter safe. While Doc struggles on that front, his personal life is disrupted by the appearance of Ransom Ebanks insisting to be his sister. If he stays alive long enough, Doc believes he will disprove her claim.

The eighth Doc Ford tale retains all the freshness and excitement of the previous novels as Doc and company remain viable and intriguing characters. The story line runs non-stop action as Doc swims in shark infested rivers without knowing who is the real enemy while the case destroys his efforts to remain anonymous. Randy Wayne White always writes the right stuff as he prevails as one of the best authors, if not the top gun, of Sunshine State thrillers.
