9780312929770: The Heat Islands: A Doc Ford Novel (Doc Ford Novels)

In Randy Wayne White's The Heat Islands, marine biologist and former secret operative Doc Ford is lazily poling his skiff along Southwest Florida's flat copper sea in search of sea anemones, when he runs into the body of the most hated man on Sanibel Island-Marvin Rios.

And when the Island's simplest and sweetest resident is arrested for the murder Doc heads straight into the heart of the sunshine state's dark side-to save his friend from being framed, and to save Sanibel Island from a rising tide of land-grab schemes, blood money and violence.

About the Author:

Randy Wayne White, author of the Doc Ford novels, is a columnist for Outside Magazine, the host of "On the Water," a PBS television series, and a veteran Sanibel Island fishing guide. He lives with his family in Ft. Myers, Florida.

From Kirkus Reviews:

This time out, marine biologist ``Doc'' Ford (the stylish Sanibel Flats, 1990) is on hand when Marvin Rios--marina owner and spawner of the Tarpon Tournament ($80,000 first prize for biggest catch)--is found rotting in the water. When one of Doc's friends, fishing guide Jeth, is accused and seems willing, even satisfied, to die, Doc, not believing him capable of the crime, goes searching for alternatives. Helping him with his research is his spacey chum Tomlinson, who uncovers a murky, quasi-legal real-estate finagle engineered by Rios and a Florida state senator. Meanwhile, Doc concentrates on Rios's brother-in-law Frank Sutter, an inept fishing guide and a notoriously poor fisherman who, nonetheless, won the tarpon tourney. Sutter's past includes a slew of discarded lovers as well as aliases. Zeroing in on his prey, Doc and the deadly one confront each other at the home of Doc's almost-lover, nonplaying tennis pro Dewey Nye, where Doc opts for vigilante justice. Interesting love triangle (Doc, Dewey, and Dewey's best friend) and marine lab work, plus a decent mystery element, make White a comer in the hard-edged pantheon wherein Chandler, Lutz, et al. dwell. -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP.
