Much of the enjoyment depends on the reader's reaction to the idea of a really, really proactive saint.

Synopsis

The Red Citrus Trailer Park is inhabited mostly by illegal laborers. But the steroid-powered park manager and his grotesquely muscular girlfriend want to sell the park for some easy money-and they'll do whatever it takes to drive the residents out. Their problem is a young girl who the laborers believe talks to God. When the girl witnesses the manager dumping a corpse into a lake, he knows that she has to be silence permanently.

The girl's only hope for survival: marine biologist Doc Ford, who must search through an underground nation, trek through wildlife, and defeat an assortment of bad guys...and hope he reaches her in time.

White delivers his patented slam-bang action and Southwest Florida atmosphere, and Ford is still the kind of guy who can handle half a dozen heavily armed gangbangers, figure out a workaround for doing a bootlegger's turn in a car with antilock...

This is Tula's story, and she is easily compelling enough to keep readers flipping pages...She is a true believer, and her unerring faith carries her through situations that bring pause to even a hard case like Doc.

In "Night Vision," White draws on his strength at putting Doc and his hippie friend, Tomlinson, into tense situations..."Night Vision" falls short when White allows his 18th Doc Ford outing to become a treatise on the treatment of illegal immigrants.
