Media Coverage for Randy Wayne White

Praise for Cuba Straits

"White shows a new side to his talent here, combining familiar themes and much-loved characters with a real flair for madcap adventure." —Booklist, starred review

"White smoothly combines history, action, and colorful characters into a savory concoction easily devoured in a single sitting." —Publisher's Weekly

Praise for Haunted

"Action-packed new thriller . . . The Civil War references in "Haunted" are fascinating and, as Hannah deciphers her great-uncle's diary we learn along with her the enormous impact that Florida and its residents had on the war. White tells a great story and one always learns something along the way. It's a win-win." —Naples Daily News

"Haunted contains some of Mr. White's best writing ever…Breathtaking, harrowing, and immensely suspenseful, the chills and thrills of Haunted will leave readers smiling." —Florida Weekly

"In Haunted [Hannah Smith] will just about out-Ford Ford for resourcefulness, stamina and courage . . . As always, White peppers Hannah's adventures with all manner of fascinating Florida arcana. . . . Readers will be breathless about what's next." —Tampa Bay Times

Praise for Deceived (winner of the Florida Book Award Gold Prize in Fiction)
"Deceived twists and turns as often as Hannah's boat navigates the hidden inlets and shoals of the Gulf while she tries to avoid the waves of human treachery. Randy Wayne White has made Florida's Gulf Coast an iconic part of crime fiction with his Doc Ford novels—and Deceived proves Hannah has found her place in crime fiction, too." —South Florida Sun-Sentinel

"White's evocative descriptions of life on Florida's Gulf Coast, both human and animal, win this series its rightful place in the ever-popular Florida crime fiction genre." —Publishers Weekly

Praise for Bone Deep
"We often say that fine nonfiction has the narrative drive of a good thriller, but we rarely have occasion to say that a fine thriller has all the mind-boggling fascination of compelling nonfiction. White gives us that opportunity here." —Booklist, starred review

Additional Praise
"As always with a White novel, the writing is solid, the maritime setting is vividly drawn and the plot ripples with danger and suspense…Hannah is an intriguing character who has the makings of a solid series character in her own right." —Associated Press (on GONE)
