In Gone (2012), White introduced fishing guide Hannah Smith, hinting that she was interested in a relationship with marine biologist Doc Ford, the hero of White’s acclaimed main series. Those hints almost come to fruition in the twentieth Ford novel, despite Ford’s conviction that his other “job,” covert ops, won’t mix with relationships. There are other roadblocks to romance, starting with a psycho convinced that Ford’s opposition to “jig-fishing” for tarpon has cost him his shot at becoming a big-time documentarian. Then there’s Ford’s obsession with the disappearance of five U.S. Navy torpedo bombers in 1945, and finally, the presence on Ford’s Sanibel Island home turf of a mysterious Brazilian who may also dabble in covert ops. Any of these plot strands might have made a novel in itself, and White has some trouble balancing them all. Still, for series fans, the overabundance of plot won’t matter a whit. Call it a transitional episode with lots of distractions, if you must, but fans will still be riveted by Ford and Hannah’s tango-like mating dance. And the climax is a corker, too. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Over his last several Doc Ford novels, White has vaulted to mainstream bestseller stauts. This one is likely to maintain the pattern. --Bill Ott --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I've read most of Randy Wayne White's books ( even the Randy Striker ones) so, I do have something to compare Night Moves to. It is a decent read especially if you are a RWW fan. Read morePublished 1 month ago by #1 Volunteer
