Some novels by Randy Wayne White include "Cuba Straits," "Bone Deep" and "Deceived." White is a bestselling crime novelist known for his novels starring Doc Ford, a retired NSA agent and marine biologist.
In "Cuba Straits," Doc Ford reconnects with his old friend General Juan Garcia, a Cuban national with an interest in historical treasures. When he stumbles onto a collection of letters allegedly sent by Fidel Castro to a secret mistress during the 1960s, Garcia goes missing. Attempting to track down his friend, Ford comes into conflict with a shadowy organization that seems to want the information in the letters kept secret at any cost.
In "Bone Deep," Ford’s friend Tomlinson receives a request to help a Crow Indian acquaintance track down a stolen tribal relic, a mission on which Ford happily tags along. Searching for the artifact, however, brings Ford and Tomlinson to the attention of both the fossil black market and a powerful strip mining operation.
"Deceived" stars White's other major character, Florida fishing guide and adventurer Hannah Smith. As the novel opens, Smith is focused on two problems: an unsolved murder case and a private heritage museum soliciting contributions from Smith and her neighbors. The museum turns out to be a front for a shady real estate play, and as Smith attempts to save her community, she finds the two mysteries intertwining.
