Randy Wayne White has long been known for suspenseful plots, complex characters, and an extraordinary sense of place. His new series has them all - and then some.
Hannah Smith: a tall, strong, formidable Florida woman, the descendant of generations of strong Florida women. She makes her living as a fishing guide, but her friends, neighbors, and clients also know her as an uncommonly resourceful woman with a keen sense of justice - someone who can't be bullied - and they have taken to coming to her with their problems.
Her methods can be unorthodox, though, and those on the receiving end of them often wind up very unhappy - and sometimes very violent. And when a girl goes missing, and Hannah is asked to find her, that is exactly what happens....

I have all most all of Randy Wayne White's previous books, often in both hardback and digital. I loved his Doc Ford books, and would buy another one as soon as it becomes available. I also love the outdoor and adventure writing he did. Books like "Last Flight Out" and "The Sharks of Lake Nicaragua" keep me company on long kayak trips in the wilderness. I even like the early stuff he wrote as Randy Striker. I've know a lot of strong, adventurous, action oriented woman, and they didn't seem to act or think or talk like the lead character in this book.So would I try another book by RWW? Of course.
Renee Raudman is an excellent narrator, but RRW's efforts to write the way a woman thinks in first person was disappointing.
I was disappointed.
I was expecting something like an old Doc Ford. What I got was o Romance Novel
It has turned me off to any more books in this series!
Renee did OK, but the story killed her
Big fan of RWW, and have read or listened to most or of the Doc Form books. This just did not meet expectation.
not much of a story
I would not have published it.
Any of his Doc Ford novels
With the main voice being that of Hanna Smith, a SW Fla born and bread woman and fishing guide, she would have a more country / cracker accent.
Like the new protagonist and the ties to the past novels of Randy's. Hope he keeps it up.
I expected the same type of writing as in the Doc Ford series. Because of that, the book started out a little slow. However, it picked up and the story developed nicely. Overall, I'd recommend it.
Always. I thoroughly enjoy his books.
