I never became bored or felt anything like redundancy which, if you read a lot, you run across quite a bit.
I would love to meet this guy, I bet he’s a trip to speak with in person! Read it, you really will enjoy the book, a pretty deep opinion of a lot of things going on in the world and time very well spent.
CHEERS to Mr. White.
I get to watch Ford at work with his sea creatures and feel bad right along with him when some of the come to harm. Oh, and I get to ride in his boat. I get the feel of the bay, the mangroves, the trees and flowers, the creatures, the sea spray.
White treats the net ban rule well, showing various aspects. Yes we need the ocean protected or it will be fished out. But what about those whose jobs and way of life are destroyed? Allowing netting by locals only sounds good, but how is such a rule enforced? No easy answers, just as in real life.
Doc is clever in how he gets one crook to fess up––would make a great scene in a movie.
This story has harrowing aspects in the horrible things that happen to those Doc cares for the most. Oh, but revenge is sweet when he cleverly consigns one murderer to a fate worse than death.
Hard to put this book down, even on a second read.
As for the story, all Doc Ford novels are a fun read and nearly every book introduces new characters. This one is no exception!
