Salt River (A Doc Ford Novel) Hardcover – February 11, 2020
Enhance your purchase
Marine biologist and former government agent Doc Ford is sure he's beyond the point of being surprised by his longtime pal Tomlinson's madcap tales of his misspent youth. But he's stunned anew when avowed bachelor Tomlinson reveals that as a younger man strapped for cash, he'd unwittingly fathered multiple children via for-profit sperm bank donations. Thanks to genealogy websites, Tomlinson's now-grown offspring have tracked him down, seeking answers about their roots. . . but Doc quickly grows suspicious that one of them might be planning something far more nefarious than a family reunion.
With recent history on his mind, Doc is unsurprised when his own dicey past is called into question. Months ago, he'd quietly "liberated" a cache of precious Spanish coins from a felonious treasure hunter, and now a number of unsavory individuals, including a disgraced IRS investigator and a corrupt Bahamian customs agent, are after their cut. Caught between watching his own back and Tomlinson's, Doc has no choice but to get creative--before rash past decisions escalate to deadly present-day dangers.

“As always, the fruit of White's research—this time, on deep-sea treasure hunting, red tides, and the technique of 'confused insemination'—will hold readers rapt on its own, supported, of course, by Doc's good heart and Tomlinson's mercurial personality.”—Booklist
“Another rollicking adventure (and cliff-hanger ending) from White that will have them hooting.”—Florida Times-Union

Doc suspects one or more of his buddy's new family may have ulterior or even deadly intentions but he has to fend off one of Tomlinson's love struck "daughters" while trying to find out who may have the motive in question. Added to this complication, are several corrupt officials who have zeroed in on Doc in an effort to locate the millions in hidden gold from a previous adventure.
Believe me when I say little happens (the story often drags) and Doc has become the clumsiest special ops agent to ever settle in Florida as he still forgets to check for bad guys behind doors, or to observe his surroundings, etc. How did he ever get to be the deadly assassin and special agent we met early in his adventures? And for those who read these tales for the relationship and rapport between Doc and Tomlinson, jump right in, the water's fine.
Maybe he is running out of subjects and southwest Florida character’s to write about, I don’t know but this book was boring.
