ABOUT RANDY WAYNE WHITE: Since his first Doc Ford novel, Sanibel Flats, came out in 1990, White has become one of the most popular thriller writers in the nation. His audience and reputation only continue to grow, and through him, hundreds of thousands of readers have been introduced to the secrets of Florida’s natural wonders and history. An outdoorsman, raconteur, journalist and former fishing guide, he has been stabbed, “shot at with intent,” and was in a hotel that was blown up by Shining Path anarchists in Peru. As a columnist for Outside magazine, he covered the America’s Cup races in Australia, went dog sledding in Alaska, searched for wild orangutans on Borneo, brought back refugees from Cuba, dove in the infamous Bad Blue Hole lake on the desolate Cat Island in the Bahamas, and even participated in a mission to steal back General Manuel Noriega’s bar stools. This is Randy Wayne White's twenty-fifth Doc Ford book. He has also had four collections of his columns for Outside magazine and elsewhere published, as well as the Florida Book Award-winning Hannah Smith series, which include Gone, Deceived, Haunted, and Seduced. White has been awarded the Conch Republic Prize for Literature, as well as the John D. Macdonald Award for Literary Excellency. In 2009, Randy was elected an American Fellow by The Explorers Club, New York City. In 2011, White was named a Florida Literary Legend by the Florida Heritage Society. He lives on Sanibel Island, Florida, where he was a light-tackle fishing guide for many years, and spends much of his free time windsurfing, playing baseball, and hanging out at Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille. He also has a home on nearby Pine Island that was built on a Calusa Indian shell mound and has been featured on NPR and in the Wall Street Journal, where White discussed his passion for maintaining this historic property and land, especially after a devastating hurricane.
