Dead SilenceBook - 2009
Imagine the worst that can happen. Then imagine again. The stunning new Doc Ford novel by the New York Timesbestselling 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 outand the unthinkable happens: an abduction attempt right before Fords eyes. Ford engages, managing to save the senator, but the companion in her car is not so lucky. A fourteen- year-old Minnesota boy, in New York as the prize for an essay-writing contest, he is snatched and vanishesdead, authorities fear, until they receive the kidnappers ultimatum. Ford goes on the hunt, an odyssey that brings him first to Long Island, then to Florida, but if what happened before was unthinkable, its nothing compared with what he discovers. The boys captors have a definite agenda, and to make sure he isnt rescued before their thirty-six-hour deadline is up, theyve put him someplace theyre sure no one will find him: theyve buried him alive. But theres something about the boy his captors do not know. He has a past, as do Doc Ford and many of the other key players in these extraordinary events. And before those thirty-six hours are over, all those pasts will catch up to the present with catastrophic results. Randy Wayne Whites 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 remarkable twists and revelations of Dead Silence.
