Although I'm pretty much addicted to Doc Ford, I found this one a bit boring and predictable, almost like RWW had to fulfill a writing quota to his publisher and this was the result. If you love the Doc Ford character, as I do, you'll read it and enjoy it, even if it's only a little. If you're not familiar with Doc Ford, pick one of the previous 19 books to read.
