My first, but not my last, Doc Ford novel from White. I was captivated by the "Film Noir" feeling of the book, with the mysterious Garbo-type woman and the story line of a ship sunk in the waters off Captiva Island, Sanibel and Ft. Myers during a World War II-era hurricane and then uncovered by a recent hurricane. Interesting historical notes about a German presence in the coastal area. The next time I'm in the western Florida area, I will look at those waters through different eyes.

After reading the latest in the Doc Ford series, I continue to be a fan, although White's writing is getting a little more dogmatic and terse. He gets on a bit of a tear about the government's lack of response to natural disasters, but it seems a little too removed from the storyline.

There is also a gaping hole left in the story regarding a key female character that bothers me - perhaps she'll show up in later books.

Otherwise, another great Doc Ford book - I like the characters and look forward to what happens in their lives.
