BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — New York Times bestselling Florida author Randy Wayne White will appear at the Cocoa Beach Public Library at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, to introduce his newest novel, “Haunted,” to be released Aug. 19.
White introduced readers to the tall, strong, formidable Florida woman Hannah Smith in his popular Doc Ford novel “Captiva.”
Two years ago, Hannah reappeared in the novel “Gone,” launching her own series that has been earning fan loyalty and critical support. As the South Florida Sun-Sentinel says, “Hannah has found her place in crime fiction.”
This year, Hannah is back in “Haunted,” the third novel of this exciting new series.
The plot of “Haunted” tells a tale Floridians know well: historic ground is set to be broken to make way for new condos. It is Hannah Smith’s task to prove that the owner of a historic building didn’t disclose all the facts when he sold to developers.
She follows the house’s history through the years, encountering events from the Civil War, the suicides – or murders? – of two previous owners, her own family’s entanglements with the property, the legends that the house is haunted, and finally she comes face to face with the most dangerous specter of all: human obsession.
White has written 21 books in his Doc Ford series, three books his Hannah Smith series, as well as seven other novels (as Randy Striker) and five works of nonfiction.
His themes in novels and nonfiction alike are ecology, adventure, and the pursuit of unconventional activities. White’s writing has earned him the Conch Republic Award for literature and the John D. MacDonald Award for Literary Excellence.
