    " "Marine biologist Doc Marion Ford with his mysterious pat and his sidekick Tomlinson, a free spirit who has a mysterious past too, join together with a friend of theirs from Dinken Bog to investigate the life and death of a friend's daughter - who had the ability to find artifacts that people wanted and still want. Ted Bauerstock, running for Senate, believes the artifacts empower him. He thinks he 'embodies' an old war chief who ate eyeballs, raped, sodomized and cannibalized. His rich father helps him hide his sickness and tries to get him elected and then to White House." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff Dickison | 2/8/2014

    " Wow, I loved this book. I know it's not a 5-star book on the level of "The Grapes Of Wrath", but for the genre of adventure books it's one of the best. It is an incredibly fast read and almost every page is packed with excitement or necessary background. I really enjoy that Doc Ford has to try to control himself whenever he comes in contact with a bad guy, and I adore Tomlinson. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ginny Purvis | 1/26/2014

    " Just the right mix of nautical adventure, old folklore and a little bit of romance. "

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

    " fairly straightforward mystery, though a bit violent. it did keep me guessing almost till the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carol | 1/12/2014

    " A teenager girl who has a gift for finding things supposedly commits suicide after finding a haunting and valuable Native American medallion, among other artifacts. A man decides to investigate further 9 years (i think) after her death, when her grave was plundered. the book started off good, but shortly into it, it seemed to drag on...a lot of dialogue with no action until the end. It was one of those books that I couldn't wait to end--not quite bad enough to make me drop it in the middle of the book (it helped that I was listening, rather than reading or I am afraid I'd have fallen asleep. It did give some interesting facts about Florda and the history of the Native Americans there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 1/7/2014

    " Based on a true story, when the grave of a long-dead Indian girl is vandalized, marine biologist Doc Ford travels to Ten Thousand Islands, Florida, to investigate. Part of White's Doc Ford series, this one can definitely be read as a stand-alone, without having read any of the other books in the series. "

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

    " Good quick 'who done it' read. Great if you know FL and the Keys. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 trickgnosis | 12/24/2013

    " A serviceable entry in the Doc Ford series. These books, in my experience, are best when White indulges more in the settings and the characters. Here we get only brief tastes of Key Largo and Sanibel/Captiva, so it was enjoyable enough and a page turner, but not a standout. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne | 12/10/2013

    " another good book in this series. Well done mystery thriller with lots of Florida history and sub-culture info mixed in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dad | 11/16/2013

    " This is part of a 16 book series. They are adventure, suspense and a little sex mixed in. The main characters live in Sanibel, FL. This is book 7. I would start with one of the early books and if you like it read them in order. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frank Wilem | 11/13/2013

    " I like the characters and setting in all of Randy's books. I hate that I lost all of my autographed copies during Hurricane Katrina. "

    " The more books I read by Randy Wayne White the more I like him. Barbara said his characters feel like old friends - I agree. The plots change but the feel is the same. A fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave Ward | 10/16/2013

    " Ten Thousand Islands by Randy Wayne White (G.P.Putnam's Sons 2000) is a really fine story. It deals with the islands below Marco and on into the Everglades and the Calusa Indians. My rating: 7/10, finished 8/9/12. "

    " I had read White before once but some time ago. Florida's islands, fishing, boating and hurricanes are not easily related to by this "flatlander" but the mystery and adventure captivate. A most unusual number of methods to murder. "
