“(Audio book) Slow to start, but good overall story. Often simplistic; White felt the need to explain the meaning of phrases such as "watch your six."”Donna P wrote this review Friday, April 1, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Marion 'Doc' Ford, marine biologist and CIA covert operator, gets a visit from his Central American former lover, telling Doc that someone has kidnapped their son. That someone is a killer who likes to burn his victims. But this time the killer wants something more from the boy. He wants his face transplanted in order to cover the horrendous scars he received as a child. Ford and his buddy Tomlinson figure out from clues sent by the boy where he is being held. Along the way Ford manages to offend his girlfriend and learn about face transplants, shock therapy, and where circus people live when not touring. This is a good mystery in a good series.
“The novel keeps your interest in a fast paced kidnapping. Doc's son is kidnapped. We learn about Doc's son, the son's mother and her psychological issues, and Doc's sexual and marital issues. Lake (Doc's son)was kidnapped by a murderous psychopath hired by his mother's jealous ex husband. Apparently Doc sired his son by having an affair with a married woman. The Psychopath double crosses the General's plan to rescue his ex wife's son and be a hero in the eyes of her country. Pilar, Lake's mother, is a prominent political figure. Doc finds himself in a love triangle. He still loves Lake's mother, but has strong feelings about Dewey, his current lover. He's never been happier and she tells him she may be pregnant. Unfortunately, Dewey tells him the possibility after she finds Pilar in his arms and heard his declaration of devotion. Dewey takes off and leaves Doc wondering if once again he is to be a father and searching desperately for his kidnapped son. Doc has Pilar's computer hacked and the information he learns sends him into a tailspin. The truth about Pilar finally comes out. Doc learns his son is truly brilliant and leads his father directly to the location of his prison.
Randy Wayne White has the talent few authors have. He makes his characters very real. His characters have real flesh. That keeps you into reading his novels because the characters become real to the reader.”
“This book has everything that nightmares are made from -- clowns, carnies, an insane murderer straight from the asylum, circus folk, a tattoed muscleman, Central American terrorists, voodoo, CIA agents, arson, kidnapping -- you name it. What a fun read!”Jessie R wrote this review Thursday, January 3, 2008. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
