Doc Ford Novels

Marion “Doc” Ford, a marine biologist and ex-NSA agent, makes his home on the scenic west coast of Florida, but leaving his former dangerous life behind, where he protected his country by all means necessary, isn’t that easy. Old friends asking for favors, dead bodies washing up on Dinkins Bay, diving lessons going horribly wrong … the shadowy Southwest world of Florida keeps putting Doc Ford in its crosshairs. This thrilling ongoing series by beloved Florida author Randy Wayne White, which began with Sanibel Flats, has become something of a literary institution, with its perennial bestsellers, a TV show in the works, and even a Doc Ford restaurant on Sanibel Island.
