"Where have all the Flowers Gone?" Song lyrics


Hannah Smith is a fishing guide in Florida. She inherited the business and a home from her uncle, Doc. Ford. He was the father Hannah never had and Hannah was the son that Doc never had.

Things are tight financially in the fishing guide business. It's the end of the fishing season and Hannah understands that she'll have to get some part time work to pay the bills.

One of her wealthy clients asks her if she'd help locate his niece-who isn't exactly missing, but might be being held under the influence of an unscrupulous man.

Hannah had also helped her uncle with investigations and she accepts this offer.

The narrative displays Hannah's growth as a new investigator and cries out in protest because people don't seem to think she can do the job, either because she's a woman or because she's not adequately educated.

There's good dialogue, lots of action, a picturesque setting and a protagonist with a strong ethical center who will speak out to the reader.  This is a good addition to the Doc Ford series, taken to the next generation.
