It began peacefully enough, on one of Florida's private islands. At a reception hosted by a notorious Russian black marketeer, Doc Ford uses darkness, and his friend Tomlinson, as cover to get an underwater look at the billionaire's yacht. By the time Ford surfaces, everything has changed. Environmental extremists have taken control of the island. Or are they thugs hired by the Russian's competitors? Whatever the motive, they have herded everyone together and threatened to kill one hostage every hour until midnight unless their demands are met - at which point they will just blow everybody up.
Electronic jammers make communications with the outside world impossible. The only hope of avoiding terrible consequences: The militants do not know Ford's capabilities, or that he is still on the loose. But that situation won't last for long... and the clock is ticking.

Not White's best
I am a big fan and read everything he writes. After the last two books, Deep Shadow & Night Vision, I expect and want more of the same intensity of action and depth of character. I didn't really feel any of that in Chasing Midnight.
I especially like George Guidall's reading of White's books.
I picture Doc Ford with his voice. He also read Night Vision. Great performance.
The sturgeon science was interesting, Environmental terrorism. Lots of good subject matter.
I have only read this book audibly. Before totally dismissing it, I will give it another chance and read it in book form. Maybe I missed something.
