Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

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.

For various reasons, some longtime authors change their thematic writing styles, notably, Dean Koontz in recent years. Randy Wayne White is apparently going through his own metamorphosis as demonstrated by his most recent novels, "Chasing Midnight" and his new, "Night Moves". Most continuing series of novels contain two strands that interest and captivate loyal readers. First is the ongoing interactions, conflicts, and conversations between recurring characters that provide further depth of characterization and depth of understanding of those characters. This strand is what endears certain characters and recurring individuals into our memories and we become comfortable and relaxed with their lives because we already are invested in their backstory; indeed, such is the relationship between Doc Ford and Tomlinson, his foil and his conscience.

The second strand is of course the plot for that particular novel, the engine that drives the action in that story. In recent reviews, it has been my opinion that there's been a shift in the Doc Ford stories away from the action, the violence, and generally from suspense and thrills toward increasing the focus on deeper characterization. The last several novels have not provided the same thrills, the same suspense, and the same repressed alpha violence and danger in Doc Ford that was so addictive in his earlier adventures; instead the focus has seemed to shift to mysteries wrapped around Ford and Tomlinson in their constant bickering and one upsmanship and dime store psychology.

Remembering that even an average Doc Ford novel is better than a great deal of what's out there in the marketplace today, it is frustrating for long time readers to see this less than subtle change in the stories and character that we grew to love.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Night Moves is Randy Wayne White's 20th novel in the Doc Ford thriller series. I remember reading the first novel, Sanibel Flats, when it was published in 1991. In those days, I enjoyed reading mystery series like those of John D. MacDonald and Robert B. Parker and was always looking for a new investigator character to follow. Doc Ford is a black ops individual who is in partial retirement keeping a low profile as a marine biologist. The secret agency background of the character did not appeal to me in the first novel because I liked the intelligent, regular guy types like Travis McGee and Spenser. I read Night Moves skipping ahead 19 novels in the series.

Doc Ford has become a more complex, introspective character than he was in Book 1. It is obvious that Mr. White has become a skilled writer of thrillers, and I enjoyed reading his new book more than I did his first one. Doc and his friend aging hipster Tomlinson are interested in potentially new evidence of the fate of Flight 19, described in a famous account of WWII planes that supposedly disappeared in the "Bermuda Triangle" on a training mission. With their seaplane pilot friend, Futch, the three fly to the site of potential Flight 19 remains on a mangrove island in southwest Florida. This location is not in the Bermuda Triangle, so it could be a fascinating puzzle for the three men to solve.

The adventure takes a dangerous turn when the three are almost killed in a suspicious malfunction of their seaplane.

There are many murder mysteries out there, but Randy Wayne White's Night Moves offers something a bit rarer: the attempted murder mystery.

The book opens with series hero Marion "Doc" Ford, series sidekick Thomlinson and pilot friend Dan Futch looking for the remains of some military planes that disappeared around Florida around World War II. They are flying over an area where they suspect the planes are when something goes wrong and their own plane is forced into a rough landing. They're lucky to have survived and it soon becomes evident that this wasn't an accident but sabotage.

Finding the attempted killer is no easy task since they aren't even sure who the true target was. It could be Dan is in the gunsights of a rival sports fisherman. Thomlinson makes a likelier choice: not only is he sleeping with a married woman, but he has run afoul of a drug lord. Finally, Doc himself has accumulated enemies, both in his role as a marine biologist (he's about to publish a report that could damage the local sport fishing industry) and in his part-time role as a government assassin.

Adding to the complications in Doc's life are a possible love interest in Hannah Smith from the previous White book Gone (interestingly, for all the potential romance, the two characters are rarely actually physically in the same scene) and a stray, well-trained dog who seems to have adopted Doc.

Unlike many Doc Ford books, this one doesn't have the truly nasty villain, but it does have some bad guys and other interesting characters. I could praise the plot and the writing, but this is par for the course with White. If you're a fan of the Doc Ford series (or even a fan of its literary predecessor, John MacDonald's Travis McGee series), Night Moves is a must-read.
