Night Vision by Randy Wayne White


Randy Wayne White's newest novel is Night Vision. It is due out on February 22, 2011. It received the following starred review from Publisher's Weekly.

In White's intelligent, fast-paced 18th Doc Ford thriller (after Deep Shadow), Doc's hipster friend, Tomlinson, persuades Doc to help an extraordinary 13-year-old girl, Tula Choimha, recently arrived at a Florida trailer park from Guatemala. Tula, who speaks with God and whose patron saint is Joan of Arc, is determined to find her mother and brother, who came to America months earlier but have disappeared. People who get to know Tula believe she is special, blessed, even a saint--except for the sleazy, steroid-infused trailer park landlord, Harris Squires. Fearful that the discovery of some human remains inside an alligator carcass will implicate him in a crime witnessed by Tula, the paranoid Harris kidnaps Tula and takes off. Doc sets out to rescue Tula, but standing in his way is a menacing gangbanger, Victorino, and Harris's vicious girlfriend, Frankie. White balances the sordid criminal activities with plenty of intriguing wildlife lore. The bond that Tula forms with her captor adds poignancy.

About the Author

Randy Wayne White says about himself... "When my marina closed in 1987, I wasn’t qualified to do anything, so I wrote Sanibel Flats. I had two young sons, a lot of bills, so failure wasn’t an option. It is a rare day when I do not reflect on my good luck to have succeeded in a very tough profession.”

He has written 18 novels under his name and other books of non-fiction. That about says it all, doesn't it. If you've never read his books, you might want to give him a try.
