Doc Ford, marine biologist and sometime intelligence agent, is wallowing in depression, drinking too much, not exercising, and doing too much thinking. Then Sally Minster, an old friend comes to him for help; her husband has disappeared, and she refuses to believe he's dead. Thus begins a tale of cult religion, real estate schemes, and murder in the Florida Everglades. Dick Hill's staccato rhythm and tempo give great advantage to the story's action scenes. Using distinguishing voices that are easy to identify, he portrays a spectrum of characters and delivers sighs, laughter, and other emotions naturally. While there are many long introspective passages that Hill could have read more smoothly--his delivery works much better with the dialogue--all in all this is a good performance. S.S.R.
