did not like it
bookshelves: crime-and-or-evil
Read in July, 2012

Has the series about Doc Ford, Florida marine biologist, finally jumped the shark? Seems like it. The Florida stuff is still well done. The marine biology stuff is still interesting and the whole business about Mote Marine Aquarium and sturgeon and caviar was fascinating. I had no idea.

What was not well done was the plot - eco terrorists attacking international caviar exploiters - and the characters - the eco-bitch, the video nerds and the psychopathic bible quoting twins. Doc is a cardboard cutout of his former self. And Tomlinson is so far beyond annoying that it's hard to describe. I hardly ever wish for an author to kill a character, but I'm there now, and it doesn't have to be painless or tidy - just over.

Karen Legg I'm ready to kill Ford also. A marine biologist releases a potentially invasive bioengineered species into the Gulf? That was the last great stupid flaw in the whole inane story. I thought the first half of the series was wonderful, but it certainly has gone downhill, or downstream!
