Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on February 18, 2001
Randy Wayne White again skillfully weaves fact and fiction with his typically witty prose. Ten Thousand Islands is loosly based on the real-life discovery of an ancient indian artifact that White extrapolates into a tale of greed, deceit and the drug-induced ramblings of Ford's psychedelic side-kick, Tomlinson. I have read all of White's Doc Ford novels, and this is his best work since the Heat Islands. The story is imaginative, the book moves at a good pace, and of course White's musings on Florida are right on the money. ("Like a bus station, Florida attracts con men and predators. It always has. Florida always will.")
I recommend this book without reservation to Doc Ford fans, lovers of a good mystery, or those in the mood for an off-beat and unlikey hero in a wonderfully told story.
