Marine biologist and former secret operative Doc Ford is lazily poling his skiff along Southwest Florida's flat copper sea in search of sea anemones when he runs into the body of the most hated man on Sanibel Island: Marvin Rios. And when the Island's simplest and sweetest resident is arrested for the murder, Doc heads straight into the heart of the sunshine state's dark side - to save his friend from being framed, and to save Sanibel Island from a rising tide of land-grab schemes, blood money, and violence.
"Politics and land development are pivotal elements in this taut, suspenseful tale as White makes the lure of the sea understandable to landlubbers and presents a panoramic view of southwest Florida." (Publishers Weekly)

CANNOT finish this one!!
No. I can't get through the second one I've tried so will not waste time/money on more.
Something in the Historical Fiction genre - - probably WW-II or something from Bernard Cornwell or, perhaps, Leon Uris.
As was once said in a parody of the old TV show "Friday", he is guilty of a "409" - OVER-Acting. Corny accents, poorly rendered.
NO. I wish I had not invested the time it took me to get half-way through.
Wandering main plot (if there, indeed, was one). Too many seemingly unrelated sub-plots. Most characters are pretty shallow and uninteresting. I have NO idea what my wife finds attracting in this author.
