Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Randy Wayne White--try saying that three times, fast--had everybody shouting about a new Travis McGee with 1996's Captiva. But White's marine biologist Doc Ford is a much more complicated character than the late, great John D. MacDonald's muscular bounty hunter. For one thing, Ford has a shadowy political past--which explains why he's reluctant to race down to Havana to bail out his chemically-abusive friend Tomlinson when his boat is impounded under suspicious circumstances. "By most definitions it was a nightmare, but to me it was simply a sleeping revisitation of a thing I had done, a thing that I loathed," says Doc--planting the seeds of a revelation about his past and showing off the kind of writing that makes his new book so compulsively readable. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal

A few days before Christmas, marine biologist and former CIA operative Marion "Doc" Ford receives a call from a pal whose sailboat has strayed into Cuban waters. The friend needs Ford's help to bribe officials and get back his impounded boat. Complicating his life still further, an impossible love named Dewey has arrived that afternoon. Now Ford must go to Cuba, a dangerous trip because of his clandestine operations there that is made more dangerous by Dewey's insistence on accompanying him. What Ford encounters in Cuba is not simple government graft but a plot to eliminate Castro, and if Ford and his friends are to survive he must risk an alliance with a former Soviet agent, one of a cadre with its own reasons for wanting him dead. This is a fine addition to White's Doc Ford series (e.g., Captiva, Putnam, 1996), crackling with both tension and humor. For most popular collections.?Charles Michaud, Turner Free Lib., Randolph, Mass.
