Synopsis

Doc Ford has long lived a double life. This time, it may finally have caught up to him. The electrifying new thriller from the New York Times-bestselling author.
 
     “I’ll make an example of someone close to you.”
     On a moonless night on Sanibel Island, Florida, marine biologist Marion “Doc” Ford carefully watches a video of a hooded man executing three hostages. The man is an American working with ISIS, and in the next few days, it’ll be Ford’s job, as part of his shadowy second life, to make sure he never kills anybody else again.
     But a lot can go wrong in a few days, and Ford has no way of knowing that not only will the operation prove to be a lot more complicated than he has anticipated, but that he’ll end up bringing those complications back with him to the small community of boaters, guides, lovers, and friends in Dinkin’s Bay, where he’s long made his home.
     Someone has taken Ford’s actions very personally, and now no one there is safe – least of all, Ford himself.
     “White continues to provide thinking readers with action-packed thrillers that are also thoughtful and informative,” writes Bookreporter.com. “By the end, you won’t be able to read fast enough.”
     Better get started now.

The front-loading of the major surprises makes this adventure middling among Doc Ford’s recent Bond-like encounters with villains with political agendas...

White makes particularly good use of this always-potent crime-fiction theme—the knight errant who inadvertently brings trouble home to those he loves—ramping up tension by transforming the marina from laidback sanctuary to imperiled target.

...you can't pepper the beginning of the book with references to a stupendous great white shark named Dolly wreaking havoc with dive tourism off the Southwest Florida coast without bringing her back to, in effect, go off. And she will, when almost everyone least expects it.

... it looks as if the genetically altered retriever that Doc rescued in the Glades a few adventures ago has made the grade. He gets a name and continues to steal scenes. “Deep Blue” is the author at his best. You will want to say “He is back,” but he never left.

This series isn’t for readers who prefer their plots to be at least a tad plausible, but fans of far-fetched thriller heroes from James Bond to Jason Bourne will find a lot to like.
