New York Times bestselling author “Randy Wayne White spins another terrific Florida tale”* in this thriller of bio-terror and extreme revenge. It starts with a simple request: check up on the mysteriously reclusive biologist brother of an old friend. But what Doc Ford stumbles upon in the doctor’s secluded island home is a nightmare. He has hanged himself—and his body is host to a rare strain of feeding, breathing parasites. It’s not an accident. Neither is the fact that the flesh eaters are multiplying in the infested Florida waters. A biological catastrophe has arrived. And only Doc Ford can find out why, and stop it from spreading further...

Review: Dead of Night (Doc Ford Mystery #12)

User Review  - Rick Hollis - Goodreads

The Doc Ford books are wonderful change of pace from the usual mystery. There is Doc and is his friends, and Florida, with its weather and critters. I found this one a disappointment. There was not much of FL in the book, and the plot seemed a bit farfetched. Read full review
