We Say...

The triple name (complete with Wayne, that middle name so weirdly popular among convicted killers) and the south Florida settings might lead you to expect Randy Wayne White’s books to have a cartoonish, Carl Hiaasen-type vibe ... but you’d be wrong. In their reverence for the local land- and seascapes of his adopted home, the former fishing guide’s best-selling thrillers recall Florida naturalist Bill Belleville, not Hiaasen: more love, less outrage. His Doc Ford character (star of a 19-book-strong series) is a star in his own right, figurehead of three Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grilles in Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers, but White will be reading from his latest novel, Deceived, the second in a series starring a new hero: fishing guide Hannah Smith. The dashing Doc Ford, with his shadowy spy background, remains a presence, but Hannah Smith is quickly becoming a beloved character in her own right, an appealing mix of independence and insecurity who’s more human than any action hero could possibly be. – Jessica Bryce Young
