It took me well over a week to read Huner's Moon. There just wasn't enough interesting things happening that kept me reading on. I think it's time for Randy to stop going commercial with his Doc Ford Bars and gift shops and get back to the basics of bringing the "old" Marion Ford back. I think I'll wait for the next Doc Ford to come out as a paperback and save myself a few bucks. Get with it, Randy! Me thinks old Doc needs a quick transfusion of Dusky MacMorgan's hot blood.
The book is fast paced - it takes place over the course of only a few days, which serves to heighten both the tension and the action. I was disappointed in the books drifting away from the southwest Florida setting that I know and love, but White's snappy writing and allusions to the moon (a knowing wink and nod to close readers) and other literary devices made up for it. This is as close to "literature" as one gets in a genre rife with hack authors. White can *write*. The conclusion to the book was familar - White borrowed heavily from an essay he wrote after 9/11: "An Open Letter to Those Who Hide Behind the Caskets of Innocents." Powerfu stuff magnified by the story's climax.
Fans of RWW will not be disappointed. _Hunter's Moon_ is among the best of the Doc Ford novels. For those unfamiliar with the series or the author, I recommend him - both his fiction and non-fiction are excellent.
