White needs to dispense with Dewey Nye who serves absolutely no purpose in any of his of Ford
series novels. Beyond the dull, repetitive escapades with Dewey, Everglades moves at a brisk pace,
complemented by some interesting history of the Seminole tribes and Everglades. Again, however,
in typical formulaic pattern (yes, I realize this is part of the genre), Doc solves the crimes and misdeeds
of the malefactors in the last two pages, and, as before, winds up in a tropical paradise with the dull
Dewey Nye. Shark River and Twelve Mile Limit have more meat to them (even if Doc is in prime physical
shape in these two precursors) than Everglades. I always start my summer with a Randy W. White Doc Ford
novel. May have to change my own formulaic pattern next summer. BTW, met White at a writers' conference.
Very entertaining, knowledgeable guy.
White is really maturing as a writer, as this book demonstrates. His characters have a greater degree of depth, and his narrative flows between sequences flawlessly. Of course, as one would expect from a RWW novel, he has much to say about his beloved south Florida and life in general as he does about the story line. A strength of this book is that these points only ehance the plot rather than detract from it. The only sticky point about the book is that the nature of the sub-plot requires readers to have read at least the previous book, Twelve Mile Limit in order to clearly understand whats going on. Nonetheless, a recommended read.
This is the 3rd or 4th Doc Ford novel I've read. White alternates interesting facts you might not learn elsewhere about Florida and marine biology. Character development with twists and turns of a good plot. I'm a late comer to Ford's work but enjoying it immensely and I would recommend
his books to anyone interested in reading about reformed spook and special operator for a clandestine government entity.
- well, you know - if I told you about it. Enjoy!
