This is a book that's got everything and then some..." --Denver Post "He describes southwestern Florida so well it's easy to smell the salt tang in the air and feel the cool gulf breeze." --Mansfield News Journal "Stylish written!" --Kirkus Reviews "[The] first appearance of intelligent, likable Doc Ford will leave readers hoping to see him again." --Publishers Weekly "A promising debut from another Floridian who can turn a phrase." --Booklist
