Doc Ford is a marine biologist with a murky past as a government agent involved in some killings in foreign locales. He's living a quiet life until he gets a call from Pilar Fuentes, the mother of his son and the former wife of a corrupt Central American general who wants him dead. Their son has been kidnapped, and Pilar wants Ford's help. The kidnapper is a killer who is called Incindiaro, as he's fascinated by fire deaths and in fact is severly burned over most of his body. The kidnapper appears to want the kid's skin for a face transplant, and Ford isn't about to let that happen. To complicate everything, Pilar now wants nothing to do with Ford romantically, Ford's new love overhears his confession of love for Pilar and dumps him.

It's got a nice pace and has some left-field plot turns as the story comes down to the final pages, but hey, Doc Ford was an assasin. There was definitely the potential for an "everyone *doesn't* live happily ever after" ending, but naturally it resolves without that! I've read the series so "know" the charaters the Doc Ford series and you just know it'll all work out in the end.

A very good read and well worth the time.

Living just a few miles from Randy White, I can really associate with the area he writes about. Those who do not live in this area of Florida, can also appreciate the travel-log and detail of his writing. Not only does he tell a story, he draws a picture.

I love all the Doc Ford books by Randy Wayne White. This one was especially worth reading. It pays to read them in sequence for a better understanding of the background.
