Praise for BONE DEEP
“White keeps the action churning forward as Doc encounters both human and animal foes, but the real interest here is the archaeological backdrop. Masterfully seeding the plot with information on Florida’s ancient natural history—and its contemporary environmental challenges—White delivers a novel that perfectly blends story and landscape. 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.”––Booklist (starred review)
“A descent into the world of overzealous and unethical fossil collectors leads to a boat-napping, stolen artifacts, and increasingly dire threats . . . White does a fine job detailing Florida’s unique history and geography.”––Publishers Weekly
Praise for NIGHT MOVES
“Fans will still be riveted by Ford and Hannah’s tango-like mating dance. And the climax is a corker, too. Over his last several Doc Ford novels, White has vaulted to mainstream bestseller status. This one is likely to maintain the pattern.”—Booklist
“Captivating . . . [an] intriguing installment.”—Publishers Weekly
“White weaves in and out of the two mysteries — the murder attempt and Flight 19 — telling the story with the same tight, vivid prose his fans have come to expect. The result is another strong addition to one of crime fiction’s most consistent series.”—Associated Press
“Drawing on his usual mix of science, ecology and Florida lore, White reels in an exciting story in "Night Moves” . . . [the novel] illustrates why, after 20 novels, Ford's double life and White's attention to the Florida scenery continue to intrigue readers.”—South Florida Sun-Sentinel

By the way, I read the hardback edition, preferring the old school feel of a book in my hands, though any manner of reading is something I support whole-heartedly. I'm not sure how to change the "Kindle" notation in the review.
Randy Wayne White has traveled to Cuba consistently since the 70's and no one but White could write a thriller about Cuba and baseball with this much humor and insight without real personal knowledge and compelling research. "Cuba Straits" is remarkable, maybe prophetic.
Doc Ford's old friend Juan Rivera has been smuggling Cuban baseball players into the United States while also dealing in high profile Cuban collectables. A briefcase of personal letters written by Fidel Castro 1953-1963 to a previously unknown girlfriend becomes a prized and dangerous commodity.Uncovering secrets contained in these letters leads Doc Ford and Tomlinson into dangerous waters back to Cuba where evil men, a Russian and a Santeria priest, are killers and will stop at nothing to get what they want. The plot has a beautiful complexity and lots of action. Outrageous ending! "Cuba Straits" has legs. A must read now!

I have never found the Tomlinson character to be all that compelling except as a foil for Doc Ford.Read more
