    I think that calling Doc Ford 'Softboiled' does a disservice to anybody who hasn't read the series.

    I would consider , 'The Mangrove Coast' for instance, as about as far from softboiled as it gets. I couldn't get the final image out of my head for months.

    Two other Florida writers you might consider are Lawrence Shames ( 'Dutch' Leonard territory) and E.C. Ayres who created a Florida PI, Tony Lowell, You can find Ayres here, http://members.aol.com/ecayres/home.htm\\
