Publisher's Summary

When solitary marine biologist Doc Ford focused his telescope on the woman in the white boat, he didn't know his life was about to be capsized: that his conniving uncle, Tucker Gatrell, would discover the Fountain of Youth, that the National Enquirer would write about it, and that the law would beat down his door in search of three missing men.
But Doc Ford is about to find these things out - the hard way. Because in the shadowy world of Southwest Florida, where gators yawn, cattle craze, and Indian bones are buried, mysteries great and small have found the man to solve them.

Critic Reviews

"Like fellow Floridian Carl Hiaasen, White is adept at weaving ecological concerns into an oddball narrative with no loss of steam. The fate of the three missing men, even by bizarre Florida crime fiction standards, is inspired." ( Publishers Weekly)

A real Florida girl loves a real Florida story

Great book. Well researched. Entertaining. Humorous without making us Florida Crackers look stupid. I just wish they had told the narrator the right way to pronounce the Tamiami Trail.

I am so glad I didn't start the series with this

Any additional comments?

This was a struggle for me. I absolutely hated the character representing Doc's uncle. This guy drove me crazy and reminded me of someone from my past. The story was a bit weak and predictable. At the bottom of the list of books I read this year.
