Randy Wayne White was born in Ashland, Ohio in 1950. He is an outdoorsman, journalist, and novelist. He worked for the Fort Myers News-Press for four years before becoming a light-tackle fishing guide at Tarpon Bay Marina in Sanibel Island, Florida for thirteen years. His first articles on travel, natural history, archaeology, anthropology, and politics were published in Outside Magazine. He also writes a bimonthly column for Men's Health magazine.
His first novel, Sanibel Flats, was published in 1991. He writes the Doc Ford series as well as non-fiction books including Batfishing in the Rainforest: Strange Tales of Travel and Fishing, An American Traveler: True Tales of Adventure, Travel, and Sport, and Last Flight Out: True Tales of Adventure, Travel, and Fishing. He also writes under the names of Randy Striker and Carl Ramm.
Doc Ford has become a South Florida literary figure, and White certainly knows his way around the bayous. In this series installment, Doc is asked by his goddaughter to investigate some disturbing videos that were made while she and her girlfriends were celebrating a bachelorette party on the Caribbean island of St. Joan of Arc. After being drugged by some local beach boys, the girls were sexually assaulted. Now that the goddaughter's wedding is coming up, she doesn't want any dirty laundry to spoil her special day.
Doc finds himself drawn into a shadowy world of Obeah ceremonies, black magic, and witchcraft, and the listener is quickly drawn into the action and the often graphic violence. George Guidall could read the Tax Code and make it thrilling; his way of giving a wide variety of characters their own distinct personalities with just a slight change in inflection is what makes him one of the major audiobook readers. All libraries will find this a popular item; highly recommended.
