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. . . .
Randy Wayne White is the author of nineteen Doc Ford novels and four collections of nonfiction. He lives on Sanibel Island, Florida, where he was a light-tackle fishing guide for many years.
Praise for Gone by Randy Wayne White:
“In his Doc Ford novels, Randy Wayne White plumbs the shallows of the Gulf waters and the depths of the human heart. But in his newest thriller, Gone, he gives us Hannah Smith, a gutsy new heroine to root for, and a plot that crackles with the electricity of a Florida thunderstorm. Gone won’t be long forgotten.”—P. J. Parrish, author of the New York Times-bestselling Louis Kincaid thrillers
“A heroine who’s just as stubborn and capable and even more appealing than White’s Doc Ford.”—Kirkus
