Imagine the worst that can happen. Then imagine again. The stunning new Doc Ford novel by the New York Times–bestselling author.
Winter in New York City: Amid sleet and snow, Doc Ford is at the Explorers Club with his new friend, former (and maybe current) British agent Sir James Montbard, researching a jungle expedition, and awaiting the arrival of an attractive U.S. senator with whom Ford has become more than friendly. Her car pulls up, she starts to get out, and the unthinkable happens: an assassination attempt right before their eyes. Ford engages, critically injuring one of the attackers, but the senator vanishes-dead, authorities fear-until they receive her kidnapper's ultimatum.
Ford goes on the hunt, with the help of his friend Tomlinson, on an odyssey that moves to the Florida Keys and beyond. If what happened before was unthinkable, it's nothing compared to what they discover. The senator's captor has a definite agenda, and to make sure she isn't rescued before his thirty-six-hour deadline is up, he's put her someplace he's sure no one will find her: he's buried her alive . . .
Randy Wayne White's novels have always won praise for their remarkable imagination, intrigue, and some of the best characters in suspense fiction. Nothing, however, will prepare his readers for the extraordinary chilling events of Dead Silence.
