About the Book


From New York Times bestselling author Randy Wayne White, after the deadliest hurricane to hit Florida’s Gulf Coast in a century, Doc Ford must stop a gang of thieves
and worseduring the twelve hours of chaos that follow the passing of a storm’s eye.

A Russian diplomat disappears while Doc is tagging great white sharks in South Africa, and members of a criminal brotherhood, Bratva, don’t think it’s a coincidence. They track the biologist to Dinkin’s Bay Marina on the west coast of Florida, where Brotherhood mercenaries have already deployed, prepared to pillage and kill in the wake of an approaching hurricane.

No one, however, is prepared for a cataclysmic event that will forever change the island and leaves Doc to deal with escapees from Russia’s most dangerous prison, including a serial killer—the Vulture Monk—who has a taste for blood. His only ally is an enigmatic British inventor whose decision to ride out the storm might have more to do with revenge than protecting a priceless art collection.

Doc has a lot at stake—the lives of his fiancée, Hannah Smith, and their son, plus the fate of his hipster pal, Tomlinson, whose sailboat has disappeared in the Gulf of Mexico. The greatest threat of all, though, is a force that cannot be escaped—a Category Five hurricane that, minute by minute, melds sins of the past with Florida's precarious future.

Critical Praise

Praise for One Deadly Eye
“Who could better weave the convergence of a 500-year tropical hurricane and the high voltage evil of a deviant crime syndicate than Randy Wayne White. One Deadly Eye hits more powerfully and reads faster than Ian. If you weren’t on or near the SW Florida barrier islands around the end of September 2022, now’s your chance…"—Porter Goss, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency
"Explosive... Stunning depictions of hurricane prep and the aftermath in a nonstop thriller. Both longtime fans and new readers should revel in this."—Booklist STARRED review
"Randy Wayne White is a world-class storyteller—and he pulls out all the stops with this category five thriller. As Doc Ford battled both a deadly hurricane and a cadre of bad guys—including a terrifying serial killer—I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. It's a real treat to see this complicated hero back on the page." —Alison Gaylin, Edgar Award-winning author of The Collective
“The pace of this thriller moves as fast as the hurricane that hits Florida, forcing the great Doc Ford to protect his family even while dealing with a group of mobsters as bad as the storm. It’s Randy Wayne White’s best.”–Mike Lupica, author of Robert B. Parker’s Broken Trust and 12 Months to Live with James Patterson
"[Randy Wayne White's] best book ever? How about one of the best thrillers ever? ... When I put it down at night, I was wired from reading it."–Joe Soucheray, host of the Garage Logic podcast

Praise for the Doc Ford Novels
"White is a poet, a wordsmith on a level few ever obtain." —Tampa Tribune
"Anyone who insists mysteries can't also be 'real literature' should be duct-taped to a chair and handed a novel by Randy Wayne White." —Washington Times
"Packed with finely drawn characters, relevant social issues, superb plotting and an effortless writing style. White has produced a virtually perfect piece of work." —Denver Post
"White is willing to take risks, which is why he is one of the few best-selling authors today worthy of the title 'writer.'" —Fort Worth Star-Telegram -
