In this Doc Ford novel from New York Times bestselling author Randy Wayne White, life in the Sunshine State is about to take a dark turn. . .
Marine biologist and former secret operative Doc Ford is lazily poling his skiff along Southwest Florida's flat copper sea in search of sea anemones when he runs intothe body of the most hated man on Sanibel Island: Marvin Rios. But when the community's simplest and sweetest resident is arrested for the murder, Doc heads straight into the heart of Sanibel's shady underworld to save his friend from being framed―and to save his beloved island from a rising tide of land-grab schemes, blood money, and violence.
