“Black Widow” by Randy Wayne White (G P Putnam’s Sons. $24.95, 337 pages, www.docford.com).
A young woman, Shay, and her bridesmaids held a wild, wild bachelorette party on St. Arc in the Windward Islands. A sleazy blackmailer secretly videotaped the event and was threatening to ruin the lives of everyone involved.
Shay asks her godfather, Doc Ford, for help. A marine biologist by training, Doc is a quiet, peaceful, and deadly violent man who, in addition to marine biology, works as a covert agent for the United States government.
And that’s when things get interesting. Once Doc gets involved you know the bad guys will end up being forced to take just the right medicine.
As always, Doc Ford is a great read. A perfect book for an airline flight either on your way to or returning from your own lost weekend.
