Doc Ford wrestles more than one kind of demon, in the stunning novel from the New York Times bestselling author.


Many dangers lurk in the deep—the worst of them are human.

Thirty minutes into what should have been an easy, beginner-level dive in a remote Florida lake, the rim of a cave collapses, trapping two of Doc Ford's friends. Ford himself manages to escape and quickly surfaces to find help—but that's when his troubles only begin.

Two men are waiting for him on the shore, and they are not the kind of men you want to meet at any time. Murderers and ex-cons, they're intent on diving to the bottom of the very deep lake and uncovering the remains of a legendary plane wreck there, supposedly loaded with Cuban treasury gold. Ford's ex­pertise is just what they need. And if he doesn't want to help? He can die. His friends? They can die, too. In fact, they can die right now…As the hours tick away, two mortal struggles unfold simulta­neously, one above and one below. Neither outcome is certain, no man is safe…and in the deep shadow, only death awaits.

    " Doc Ford, a marine biologist, and his friends go diving for a fortune in gold in a lake in Florida. By happenstance 2 fugitives see them go into the water and want to steal their truck to get away. There's a cave-in underwater and a huge marine reptile is almost guarding the treasure. Gripping. "

    " Always enjoy his "characters", and the setting in south Florida. This one has some "scary" moments and keeps you interested until the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosie | 2/1/2014

    " I hated the beginning with its graphic descriptions of the brutal crimes but became engrossed with the fast passed storyline. Randy has written the best Doc Ford thriller yet. Expect rough language and nothing sugar coated. Literature genius from North Central High School, Pioneer Oh resides in Florida. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb | 1/21/2014

    " I have enjoyed all of the Doc Ford series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lee Anne | 1/11/2014

    " Too much description! It's really padded: if I hadn't been listening in the car from Indy to Boulder I would have been skimming like crazy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 1/6/2014

    " RWW wrote this book differently than the previous 15 or so in the series. It was hard for me to get through it, unlike all the other Doc Ford books. I love the characters so much, I can usually whip through his books like nothing. This one was a struggle. I was bored, I didn't find it believable, it was just tough going. I hope his next book is as good as all the previous books in the series. "

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

    " The reunion of Doc Ford with Will Chaser who played an important role in his previous Dead Silence along with the ever present Tomlinson, and an old fishing guide named Arlis Futch make for a humorous read. You have so many different types of characters mingling together to search for a plane thought lost to the world along with it's supposed immense treasure make for an interesting read. Throw in 2 killers on the run who happen to come across these defenseless "treasure hunters" in the middle of nowhere with no civilization close by, and they all are at the bottom of mother nature's food chain as soon becomes evident. Doc Ford with his glasses tied around his neck with fishing line, Tomlinson the skinny as a flamingo hippy, Will Chaser the hot blooded Indian, Arlis Futch the grumpy old fishing guide, and King and Perry at an isolated, desolate, body of water with hot tempers, itchy trigger fingers, bad tempers, and a tendency for violence make for a volatile combination. Have as much fun as I did keeping up with these characters, and story line! "

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

    " I look forward to every "Doc Ford" mystery...in my mind this is a very close approximation to my favorite, John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee novels...As with all of White's Ford stories lots of Florida history, flora and fauna...as always Doc Ford and friends rise to the occasion...I hope to have the time to encounter Mr. White the next time he is in the Davenport area again...I can never find the free time to get to the signings "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patricia Sanders | 1/1/2014

    " Deep Shadow is an edge on your seat mystery with a little Florida history thrown in to make the real Florida more interesting than a theme park. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti | 12/31/2013

    " Okay....I am never going scuba diving...EVER! I was hooked on this book from the start. Good read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron Louthan | 12/26/2013

    " At the risk of hiding behind cliches, this really is a "page turner". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dean Heitman | 12/18/2013

    " This book was slow to start but the finish was great. I have read several of the Doc Ford series and have enjoyed all of them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol | 12/8/2013

    " Read this in one sitting. Suspenseful, gripping, hard to put down--all those stereotypical adjectives--really do apply in this case. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeanne | 12/4/2013

    " Good, but the entire book takes place in one location over the span of about 3 hours. Not one of his best, but always a good read from RWW "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 7/6/2013

    " Not quite the type of Doc Ford novel I am used to reading. A bit limited in characters and basically takes place over the course of one day. But, still entertaining and a solid read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleele | 4/20/2013

    " a bit different, but pretty good for the most part. First book that I've read by this author "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 2/25/2013

    " Great story! But, we get the added benefit of learning about scuba diving, underwater caves, all-things-nautical! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn | 12/8/2012

    " Great reading while vacationing on Sanibel. In addition to the light fast adventure, his booked are rich in local history and natural history. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ginger | 12/5/2012

    " Not my cup of tea. Only made it a disc or two into the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 De | 10/15/2012

    " I got impatient while actually reading it, but appreciated it more upon completion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 8/31/2012

    " Doc Ford chases a treasure plane downed in a Florida Lake with his pal Tomlinson and a 16-year-old Indian from Oklahoma. The large creature floating around in the lake menaces the guys, along with two maniac murderers. Great story, and George Guidell's reading is always a pleasure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 7/14/2012

    " This is the 1st Doc Ford novel I have read and it was interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cyanemi | 5/21/2012

    " Somewhat of a frustrating read. Three different perspectives of the same event. It was not a good experiment. I still love Ford and Tomlinson and some of the esoteric things that were touched on. Of course I am nuts for Florida, which was the main character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gail | 5/14/2012

    " Another great book in the Doc Ford series. I learned even more interesting facts about Florida. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/18/2011

    " had to return it to the library. Only read 50 pages or so. willing to give it a try later------- "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 3/21/2011

    " I don't do well with 'buried alive stuff'... but this one was good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 3/16/2011

    " Very suspenseful and interesting mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 11/29/2010

    " I picked this book out just because I was searching for a tropical book. Its actually based in mainland Florida, not the Florida Keys like I originally thought. It was actually an enjoyable read that I had trouble putting down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 9/16/2010

    " The book is exciting from beginning to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kitty | 7/16/2010

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharon | 6/9/2010

    " I usually love the Doc Ford books by Randy Wayne White, but this one was a snoozer! It seems as though White has just taken up cave diving and needs to fill the reader in on all the technical details that have nothing to do with the story. Boring! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 5/31/2010

    " Marine biologist, Doc Ford, gets into some pretty hair-raising situations but this one tops them all as he tries to rescue his friends who are trapped in a cave-in underwater while outwitting psycho killers. There is even a sea monster to contend with. Loved this one! "
