Overview

The New York Times bestselling series starring Hannah Smith continues with this electrifying new thriller from the author of the Doc Ford novels.

The house is historic, some say haunted. It is also slated to be razed and replaced by condos, unless Hannah Smith can do something about it. She’s been hired by a wealthy Palm Beach widow to prove that the house’s seller didn’t disclose everything he knew about the place when he unloaded it, including its role in a bloody Civil War skirmish in which two of Hannah’s own distant relations had had a part, as well as the suicides—or possibly murders—of two previous owners.

Hannah sees it as a win-win opportunity: She can stop the condo project while tracking her family history. She doesn’t believe in ghosts. But some dangers are real. And the most deadly of all may be human obsession…
 

Praise

Praise for Haunted
 
“Action-packed new thriller . . . The Civil War references in “Haunted” are fascinating and, as Hannah deciphers her great-uncle’s diary we learn along with her the enormous impact that Florida and its residents had on the war. White tells a great story and one always learns something along the way. It’s a win-win.”—Naples Daily News
 
Haunted contains some of Mr. White’s best writing ever.  He has deepened Hannah’s character, addressing her demons, passions, intelligence, and moral fiber in ways both compelling and profound. He has painted the area around Florida’s Caloosahatchee River with artistic brilliance, often using the darkest pigments on his palette. He has collected a gallery of grotesques – human and near-human – that will make your blood curdle. He has once again dangled a bit of local history, this time Civil War era, to complicate while enhancing our understanding of the present action, layering its impact and meaning. . . . Breathtaking, harrowing, and immensely suspenseful, the chills and thrills of Haunted will leave readers smiling.”—Florida Weekly

Haunted vividly illustrates Florida’s scenery and its role in the Civil War, bringing to life a neglected history. The wartime diary brings surprising twists to the plot and gives insight to what life was like in that era. . . .
