Mangrove Lightning (Doc Ford, #24)Mangrove Lightning by Randy Wayne White

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

White’s best Doc Ford to date, I believe, Mangrove Lightning combines Florida prohibition history with present day bringing Marion and Tomlinson to a remote location in order to help a former legendary fishing guide keep his claim on land wanted by the federal government.
Tootsie Barlow needs to have a family member live on his land for 9 months every year. Tootsie’s problem is that he is running out of family members, due to death or injury in strange accidents. Gracie Barlow is his last hope – and she is missing.
This plotline is scary, creepy and confusing. I found myself wanting to re-read some parts; I found myself having to put the book down a couple of times due to Gracie’s dilemma.
The other plotlines are intriguing and I wonder if they will be revisited in future books:
the British royalty element;
Hannah Smith’s last thought.
