Sanibel Flats (1990/2010) Randy Wayne White narrated by Dick Hill

This is another series I started right after I broke my ankle, so I have almost no memory of reading this.

Which is nice because it was like I was listening to it for the first time! Also, there is no kindle version of this book, so audio is my only option unless I want to re-read a bunch of paperbacks. (I don’t.)

Doc Ford has retired from working for the government, moved to Florida near where he grew up, and has opened a biological supply company to keep himself busy.

Right before he retired he was stationed in Masagua where he had become friends with the president’s wife, and introduced baseball to one of the revolutionary leaders.

Unfortunately, a call from an old friend might have him breaking his agreement that he would not go back to Masagua until several years had passed, so he would not be seen as getting involved in politics.

One of the more fascinating characters is Tomlinson, who is one of Ford’s neighbors, and a washed up hippie. Yet, as the book goes on, Tomlinson has more and more facets exposed, which I quite liked.

Oh, like many other mysteries written at this time, women are not independent characters that meet the Bechdel test.

Initially I didn’t much care for the narrator, but as I grew used to them his quirks became less noticeable.
Rating: 7/10
