Mangrove Lightning by Randy Wayne White. Published by Putnam

Is it possible that this is really the 24th Doc Ford mystery?? This time, Ford and his buddy Tomlinson are looking into a curse. Actually Ford doesn’t put much credence into boat captain/tour guide Tootsie Barlow’s claim of a curse that’s killing off his family. Barlow insists it’s all down to a 1925 mass murder that his family played a part in, and now, it would appear, the dead are back for vengeance. He begs Ford to Help clarify what’s happened to family members from the Keys to Tallahassee. It soon becomes clear to Ford and Tomlinson that something is amiss, as they have their own near misses. But is it really a curse or a modern psychopath with his own agenda? Ford has become like an old friend over the years, and I always look forward to another jaunt with him through the seamy underbelly of Florida
