Quotes & Awards

  • “One of the nation’s most accomplished wordsmiths at the top of his game.” Tampa Tribune
  • “Maintains an edgy sense of adventure…White’s strong sense of place and people keep us wanting to return to Florida’s west coast.”

    Albany Times Union

  • “The story doesn’t move in a single forward direction. Rather it is woven knot by knot, the work of a master net maker. Tense action scenes, skillful character development and an unerring eye for local flora and fauna make White a match for any Florida storyteller.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A nicely written thriller with clever, convincing dialogue…Narrator McLarty serviceably pulls out the tough-guy persona he uses so often on tape, giving us a clear, clean rendition.”


  • “Comes together in a rousing finale…in a tropical island version of the OK Corral. Ford remains the most consistently entertaining of the latter-day Travis McGees, as White continues to mix action and introspection in just the right proportions.”

    " Chris and I are reading some Florida authors these days, and like White for his surprise factor, and his sense of humor. He has a very funny side kick in his Doc Ford mystrey series. And we love the sense of place in his books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Jrobertus | 1/18/2014

    " In this thriller, Doc Ford is a marine biologist with a black past. He was an off the books, outside the law, super duper trained government killer charged with keeping America safe by any means necessary. Get it pilgrim? The writing is good, and the characters pretty well developed,especially his Bahamian half cousine Ransome, and his pal Thomlinson. However, the pace of the book is too slow with way too much internal narrative, too much psychology, and too much description of his temporary girl friends private parts. Like a lot of these tough guy books, this is really a kind of romance novel for men who may want to identify with a super tough super stud. "
