About the Author

Randy Wayne White is the author of twenty-two Doc Ford books, including the latest, Deep Blue. He has also had four collections of his columns for Outside magazine and elsewhere published--and the new Hannah Smith series has debuted with Gone, Deceived, and Haunted. In 2002, a one-hour documentary film called The Gift of the Game, about White's trip to Cuba to find the remnants of the Little League teams founded by Ernest Hemingway in the days before Castro, won the Best of the Fest Award from the 2002 Woods Hole Film Festival, then was bought by PBS and broadcast station by station in the spring and summer of 2003. A veteran fishing guide who at one time had his own local PBS show, he lives in an old house on an Indian mound in Pineland, Florida.

Reviews

Praise for Randy Wayne White's Cuba Straits

"White shows a new side to his talent [in Cuba Straits], combining familiar themes and much-loved characters with a real flair for madcap adventure." --Booklist (starred review)

"White smoothly combines history, action, and colorful characters into a savory concoction easily devoured in a single sitting." --Publishers Weekly

"A trove of revealing private documents, rumors concerning a political assassination, a trip to Cuba--it's either today's newspaper or Dr. Marion Ford's 22nd adventure. . . . Cuba provides the perfect setting. . . . The next few months' headlines will determine whether his view of contemporary Cuba is remarkably prophetic." --Kirkus Reviews

"Baseball, fishing, sharp dialogue, and an action-packed story. Pour a mojito, think of a place where people clap 'just because the sun goes down, ' and read this." --Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Intriguing settings, colorful characters, and eye-opening geopolitical dramas. When you mix everything together, you have a ready-to-serve and highly recommended first-class adventure." --Mystery Scene "White's storytelling at its best...a rip-roaring plot filled with baseball, history, lost treasure, and, just for good measure, a love triangle--all wrapped in politics." --South Florida Sun-Sentinel

"The master has knocked one out of the park." --The Florida Times-Union
