The stunning new thriller—the twentieth Doc Ford novel—from the New York Times–bestselling author.
Both Doc Ford and his friend Tomlinson have buried secrets. Now one of those secrets is about to come alive—with a vengeance.
While trying to solve one of Florida’s most profound secrets, Doc Ford is the target of a murder attempt by someone who wants to make it look like an accident. Or is the target actually Tomlinson? Whatever the answer, the liveaboards and fishing guides at Dinkin’s Bay on Sanibel Island are becoming increasingly nervous—and wary—after a near-poisoning, a plane crash, and an explosion make it apparent that Ford and Tomlinson are dangerous companions.
What their small family of friends don’t know is that their secret pasts make it impossible for the two of them to go to the law for help. There is an assassin on the loose, and it is up to them to find the killer—before he (or she) finishes the job.

Randy Wayne White is the author of nineteen Doc Ford novels, the Hannah Smith novel Gone, and four collections of nonfiction. He lives on Sanibel Island, Florida, where he was a light-tackle fishing guide for many years.From Booklist:
In Gone (2012), White introduced fishing guide Hannah Smith, hinting that she was interested in a relationship with marine biologist Doc Ford, the hero of White’s acclaimed main series. Those hints almost come to fruition in the twentieth Ford novel, despite Ford’s conviction that his other “job,” covert ops, won’t mix with relationships. There are other roadblocks to romance, starting with a psycho convinced that Ford’s opposition to “jig-fishing” for tarpon has cost him his shot at becoming a big-time documentarian. Then there’s Ford’s obsession with the disappearance of five U.S. Navy torpedo bombers in 1945, and finally, the presence on Ford’s Sanibel Island home turf of a mysterious Brazilian who may also dabble in covert ops. Any of these plot strands might have made a novel in itself, and White has some trouble balancing them all. Still, for series fans, the overabundance of plot won’t matter a whit. Call it a transitional episode with lots of distractions, if you must, but fans will still be riveted by Ford and Hannah’s tango-like mating dance. And the climax is a corker, too. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Over his last several Doc Ford novels, White has vaulted to mainstream bestseller stauts. This one is likely to maintain the pattern. --Bill Ott
