A category four hurricane has swept the west coast of Florida, creating havoc, changing lives, and reshaping the ocean bottom. Well-known reefs and wrecks have been covered up, and new ones have emerged.

The old woman who visits Doc Ford's lab late one night has a haunting story, of a loved one lost while rendezvousing with a German submarine off the coast of Florida 60 years earlier, of her belief that he was being blackmailed and that the storm has given her a second chance to prove his innocence by uncovering the wreck of his boat, and the truth, if only Ford would look for it. Intrigued, Ford agrees, and sets in motion a chain of events that will change his life forever. For there are other things in that wreck as well, and other men want those things, men willing to commit terrible acts to get them. And the woman herself, the woman is not what she seems.

Listener Opinions

    " This book seems a bit better than the last couple of Doc Ford stories I have read, but still falls short of White's earlier goes. This one had a bit of of a metaphysical feel to it had me wondering just who the woman in the old grey house really was. The history of Florida during WWII was a nice touch, but you can always count on RWW to teach us something. A cut above his latest, but not his best IMHO. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lou | 2/15/2014

    " One of the better Doc Ford books I've read. Two seemingly independent plot lines merge surprisingly toward the end. I always enjoy the interactions among Doc's pals. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 2/5/2014

    " One of Randy's most haunting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phair | 1/22/2014

    " This was a strange one. Not your usual Doc Ford adventure - very dreamlike with reality 'iffy'. Takes place immediately following the previous book with Doc still suffering from his injuries & kind of 'out of it'. Mysticism, ghosts, spirits. Is this whole book just a dream? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 1/19/2014

    " It was a fun read. I loved that there was scuba diving involved as well as a treasure hunt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 1/4/2014

    " Oh my goodness! Books set in/around Sanibel Island, Florida! Sanibel is absolutely my favorite vacation place so I loved that this excellent suspense thriller was set there. It made it especially fun to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bea | 1/3/2014

    " This is a new author for me and I chose to read this book because I am somewhat familiar with the setting, which made it fun to read. The story is set in modern day Fl but involves early history of the area at the time that Edison lived in the area. It involves history related to WW II and Nazi history in Fl. It is also the story of a woman and a man both in history and in present time. Well-written. Good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JW Manus | 1/2/2014

    " This one read almost like a ghost story with a mystery dating back to WWII. Lots of fascinating information about hurricanes. Over the top villain. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 12/29/2013

    " Shipwreck off coast of Sanibel Island is connected to an old lady who lives near the lighthouse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Porter | 12/26/2013

    " Fell in love with the Doc Ford series. It's fun, entertaining reading. I've read 3 or 4 others in this series and liked them all. Nothing heavy....just great characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dad | 12/23/2013

    " Typical Doc. Ford thriller. Deals with the aftermath of a recent hurricane,German activity on the west coast of FL during WW II,and possible ghosts and spirits.Found the hurricane and WW II info interesting.The possible ghosts, etc confused things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 May | 12/6/2013

    " The storyline was promising, but the ending was a bit anticlimactic and a bit of a let-down. I felt that it could have been so much more. It does make me curious to see what this author's other books are like, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 12/6/2013

    " Part ghost story? That was unexpected! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom Dvorske | 11/27/2013

    " The one about the nazi salvage ship and the old lady. "

    " Love Randy's writing. Been reading him since his Outside Column days. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kim Boulware | 5/8/2013

    " I really wanted to like this book because it is set in Sanibel. But I did not like the writing and the main character, Doc Ford, took a while to appreciate. This author has several books set in Sanibel / Naples / Captiva / Ft Myers area. I may try one more and see. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike French | 1/10/2013

    " Another Doc Ford novel that I truly enjoyed. "

    " Dr Ford is an interesting character. The concept kept you going. The first few pages had me hooked "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaye | 2/23/2012

    " This is so different from my usual picks, but I'm really enjoying it. Since my daughter lives in Ft. Myers, where a lot of Doc Ford's stories are set, it's especially interesting. I never knew there were German prisoners of war kept at Paige Field in Ft. Myers. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elaine | 1/10/2012

    " Didn't finish this one because I didn't like it well enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea Rivera | 12/18/2011

    " Not my favorite Doc Ford book...I had a hard time getting involved with the characters of Bern and Chestra...it was very dark and left little room for Tomlinson to be humorous... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 10/25/2011

    " Book 13 of the Doc Ford books, it was my first. Chestra...is she real or not??? He's no Carl Hiassen, but it was an enjoyable book. It's nice to read Florida writers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mel | 5/18/2011

    " I've read this once twice. Doc Ford books are best when he and Tomlinson are paired. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tom | 5/5/2011

    " This sucker took a while to get off the ground. Even when it did, this was generic and flat. It also managed to force moments of his religious (or lack thereof) beliefs. It was awkward and intentional. It held enough interesting moments though to give it two rather than 1 stars. "

    " A Nazi artifact found near a boat wreck has Doc Ford intrigued. It might have been the reader, but this wasn't one of my favorite Doc Ford books. "
