Deep Blue

Doc Ford has long lived a double life. This time, it may finally have caught up to him. The electrifying new thriller from the New York Times-bestselling author.

"I'll make an example of someone close to you."
On a moonless night on Sanibel Island, Florida, marine biologist Marion "Doc" Ford carefully watches a video of a hooded man executing three hostages. The man is an American working with ISIS, and in the next few days, it'll be Ford's job, as part of his shadowy second life, to make sure he never kills anybody else again.
But a lot can go wrong in a few days, and Ford has no way of knowing that not only will the operation prove to be a lot more complicated than he has anticipated, but that he'll end up bringing those complications back with him to the small community of boaters, guides, lovers, and friends in Dinkin's Bay, where he's long made his home.
Someone has taken Ford's actions very personally, and now no one there is safe – least of all, Ford himself.
"White continues to provide thinking readers with action-packed thrillers that are also thoughtful and informative," writes Bookreporter.com. "By the end, you won't be able to read fast enough."

About the Author-
  • This is Randy Wayne White's twenty-third Doc Ford book. He has also had four collections of his columns for Outside magazine and elsewhere published—and the new Hannah Smith series has debuted with Gone, Deceived, and Haunted. In 2002, a one-hour documentary film called The Gift of the Game, about White's trip to Cuba to find the remnants of the Little League teams founded by Ernest Hemingway in the days before Castro, won the Best of the Fest Award from the 2002 Woods Hole Film Festival, then was bought by PBS and broadcast station by station in the spring and summer of 2003. A veteran fishing guide who at one time had his own local PBS show, he lives in an old house on an Indian mound in Pineland, Florida.
Reviews-
  • Publisher's Weekly

    January 25, 2016
    White’s fast-paced 23rd Doc Ford novel (after 2015’s Cuba Straits) pits the Florida wet work specialist against David Abdel Cashmere, a Chicagoan turned terrorist who features as the executioner of three hostages in several videos. Ford travels to the Yucatan, where his target is staying at a seaside resort, but things don’t go as planned. He finds his facilitator, known only as K.A.T., with one of Cashmere’s supposed victims, Winslow Shepherd, in an eighth-floor hotel room. When Ford confronts the pair, they both fall from the room’s balcony, and Ford is forced to flee back home to Sanibel Island, Fla. Cutting-edge drones appear on the island, which are controlled, he soon discovers, by Winslow’s son, Julian (aka the Black Knight of the Internet). Ford rallies his allies, chief among them Tomlinson, his “boat-bum hipster” sidekick with ESP powers, and Brazilian Vargas Diemer, a wealthy jet-setter of questionable loyalty. Lively characters, enough action for three summer blockbusters, and plenty of plot twists make this a great addition to the bestselling series. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM.

  • AudioFile Magazine The masterful George Guidall, among the most accomplished of audiobook performers, narrates White's twenty-third Doc Ford novel. Ford is a marine biologist and occasional assassin for the federal government (mostly). White's books focus on technological marvels and the eccentric and amorous residents of the Florida island marina that Ford calls home. Guidall's performance is, as always, unpretentious and precise. His pronunciation is clear. His characters come to life. Their accents are detectable without being distracting. At the same time, he sounds like your favorite uncle telling a story off-the-cuff. There are sharks, stakeouts, fancy boats, and surprises. A good thriller, well delivered. F.C. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine
