Publisher's Summary

Doc Ford wrestles more than one kind of demon in this stunning novel from the New York Times-best-selling author. Many dangers lurk in the deep - the worst of them are human.
Thirty minutes into what should have been an easy, beginner-level dive in a remote Florida lake, the rim of a cave collapses, trapping two of Doc Ford's friends. Ford himself manages to escape and quickly surfaces to find help - but that's when his troubles only begin. Two men are waiting for him on the shore, and they are not the kind of men you want to meet at any time. Murderers and ex-cons, they're intent on diving to the bottom of the very deep lake and uncovering the remains of a legendary plane wreck there, supposedly loaded with Cuban treasury gold. Ford's ex­pertise is just what they need. And if he doesn't want to help? He can die. His friends? They can die, too. In fact, they can die right now.
As the hours tick away, two mortal struggles unfold simulta­neously, one above and one below. Neither outcome is certain, no man is safe. And in the deep shadow, only death awaits.

Doc Ford Does It Again

As a long time fan reading the Doc Ford stories, I thought I would try an audio version. The story itself was on par with most of the novels, while being a tad uneven. The story is simple enough, Doc and friends go scuba diving only to mixed up with a couple of killers looking for a means to escape the law. What transpires provides enough intrigue and drama to maintain your interest.

I found the narration clear enough, but voice of the narrator sounds just a little to folksy for my taste. For me, it just did not work for Doc Ford.

Hmmm, maybe abridged

If you could sum up Deep Shadow in three words, what would they be?

To much fill

If you’ve listened to books by Randy Wayne White before, how does this one compare?

5 out of a possible 10 compared to his other works.

Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

George is always awesome...

Any additional comments?

A good story, However I think the book was written and a publisher said... Mr. White we need more words... so the fill started.... Over all still a good listen...
