In Randy Wayne White's The Heat Islands , 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 into the body of the most hated man on Sanibel Island-Marvin Rios.

And when the Island's simplest and sweetest resident is arrested for the murder Doc heads straight into the heart of the sunshine state's dark side-to save his friend from being framed, and to save Sanibel Island from a rising tide of land-grab schemes, blood money and violence.

A novel more about the side characters than the good/bad guys. Doc does have a dark side and Randy should let it out more often-this guy did do nastiness down south for many years!

Would have been better as a short story. Too much filler that has nothing to do with progressing the plot. The villain is nasty to the core. Drama builds at the conclusion but Randy White rushes the confrontation, like a long distance runner at the end of a race. Doc Ford is an interesting character in a weak story.
