Dark Light (A Doc Ford Novel) Mass Market Paperback – March 6, 2007
Enhance your purchase
Imagine hurricane winds over the Sahara Desert, preceded by a cavalry of tornadoes. Imagine dunes flattened, then resculpted. Then imagine all that at the bottom of the sea.
A Category 4 hurricane has swept the west coast of Florida, creating havoc, changing lives, and reshaping the ocean bottom. Well-known reefs and wrecks have been covered—and new ones have emerged.
From one such wreck, marine biologist Doc Ford and his friends make a chance discovery that will have a monumental effect—a cluster of mysterious objects that lead to an equally mysterious woman and her ancient, gray-gabled estate of a beach house.
The woman weaves a haunting story of a loved one lost, and her chance to uncover the truth if Ford will help salvage the boat, named Dark Light, which sank without explanation in the hurricane of 1944. Intrigued, Ford agrees, and begins a chain of events that will change his life forever. For there are other things in that wreck as well, and other men who want them, men willing to commit terrible acts. And the woman herself—the woman is not what she seems. . . .
Filled with passion and vivid, pungent prose and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Dark Light is a thriller of uncommon intensity.

Plot started out solid enough, who doesn't like sunken treasure and some nazi artifacts to start out a book, however the story just went completely off the rails. Rather than a book about deep sea diving, treasure hunting, and a slow unravelling of a WWII era mystery, this book quickly turned into page after page, chapter after chapter, about how beautiful a particular woman was, how beautiful all of her ancestors were, and whether or not this woman was old, young, or some how magically getting younger as the story progressed. I cannot overstate how many pages and pages and pages were devoted to this silly plot line. The lightning flashed and she was young, it flashed again and she was old, or was she really young but his eyes saw her as old?? And on and on and on. The evil character barely even interacted with anyone in the book other than his main henchman, instead it was just him remembering things from his past that had almost nothing to do with the plot, over and over and over until I found myself skimming through entire chapters.
This book does nothing to advance the characters, or add any depth to the story of the marina and its lovable cast of locals, so you can absolutely skip this one (please do) and you won't miss anything.
