A category four hurricane whips West Florida, destroying homes and taking lives. The storm thrashes reefs and buries known shipwrecks--but it also exposes new ones. Then one night a stranger shows up at Doc Ford's laboratory. The elderly visitor relays an amazing story of her lover lost at sea during World War II while attempting to contact a Nazi submarine. The woman is sure he was being blackmailed--and now the truth may finally be within her grasp. Taken by her story, Doc investigates. It doesn't take long before he meets the rather unpleasant men working the same case from the other side.… (mais)

I enjoyed this one centered around a marine biologist who may be an on-call CIA spook, or something similar, and his friends on Sanibel Island. A shipwreck is found shortly after a devastating hurricane hits the island. The timing coincides with a crooked businessman stealing the boats from his damaged marina and trying to cover up past actions. Finally, add a beautiful mystery woman. The plot is like a walk on the Florida shore - sometimes full speed ahead and sometimes a tricky maneuver through the mangroves. Thrilling, unusual, grabbed my attention.

One of the better Doc Ford books I've read. Two seemingly independent plot lines merge surprisingly toward the end. I always enjoy the interactions among Doc's pals. ( )

Doc Ford is a man I could easily have a crush on. And there's his buddy, Tomlinson, who is a free spirit with a wicked sense of humor. Both are smart and take care of themselves, each other and their friends.
There seem to be two stories going on, but they are intertwined. There are some Wisconsin mob guys down taking advantage of the last hurricane's destructive path. Doc wants to set them straight after the mob guys take on some of Doc's buds.
Then there's the the mystery woman Tomlinson introduces to Doc. The story she tells of lost WWII treasure in the ocean intrigues Doc as much as the mystery woman does.
I've listened to a couple of books from this series and enjoyed each one thoroughly. This one was especially so. This is a series, but each one can be listened to as a stand-alone as far as I am concerned. And rarely does a series keep going strong when there are a lot of books in the series. This isn't one of those, again, as far as I am concerned. DARK LIGHT is #13 in the lineup and there are 17 of them.
Five Florida coast can be dangerous beans..... ( )

Almost didn't finish reading this one, but after a slow start it finally caught my interest. Doc ford and some friends discover a sunken ship after a hurricane and find Nazi artifacts in the wreckage. There is a great deal of information about life in the Sanibel Island area of Florida during WWII and interesting characters. I'll have to read another book in the series before deciding whether to put it on my list of series to read. ( )

Centered around the unrest of a hurricane season on the gulf coast of Florida, Doc Ford stays close to home in Dark Light and gets caught up in the mystery of sunken Nazi artifacts. He has to fight greedy developers, murderers, retired NFL giants, boat thieves, and treasure hunters - actually that's one formidable villain in many evil hats. A hint of the supernatural and a bit of protest against the destruction of Florida's natural habitat are included in the mix. Somehow it all hangs together. ( )
