Can't believe no one has yet mentioned James W. Hall's Thorn mysteries.
Other mystery/thriller authors who bring their Florida settings to life include Charles Willeford (Hoke Moseley series), Les Standiford (Jack Deal series), Christine Kling (Seychelle Sullivan series), Barbara Parker (Suspicion of ... series featuring Gail Connor and Anthony Quintana), Paul Levine (Solomon vs. Lord series) and Edna Buchanan (Britt Montero series).
I strongly second the recommendations for Randy Wayne White and Tom Corcoran.
