How not to leave a boat.

I love to fish and have enjoyed the Doc Ford stuff, this story has a GREAT ending. Life sucks when you get sea sick. A little slow at the start but, the payoff, at the end, for me was well worth it.

Intrigue, Suspense, Unexpected


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The unusual twists and turns of the story, I never could second guess the author.


Any additional comments?

The descriptions of the Florida terrain and the mystique of the 1000 islands kept my interest and curiosity going strong. The history of the area and the Indians was fascinating. I was completely surprised at the end to hear the author describe the actual case from which he took so much for his story. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a story with a different twist.
