Randy Wayne White has been praised as "the best new writer since [Carl] Hiaasen" (Denver Post), and his Doc Ford novels have consistently been New York Times best-sellers. Doc Ford, a former black-ops specialist, is a marine biologist on Florida's Sanibel Island. Yet he still seems to always find himself in the middle of a crime scheme.
When Doc ends up saving the life of a controversial ex-president, he finds out that the United States is planning a dangerous attack on an oil-rich Central American nation. Doc and the ex-president have only seven days to stop the shady operation from going down. To do that, however, they'll need to track down the reclusive former dictator of that nation as well as the president's former lover.
Library Journal has called the Doc Ford series "upbeat, literate, fascinating, and clever: manna for deeper readers." This 14th installment will not disappoint.
