Night Vision by Randy Wayne White

Publishers 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.

One Rough Man by Brad Taylor

Library Journal-

This series debut introduces Pike Logan and his clandestine band of counterterrorist government agents called the Taskforce. Operating outside the law, they don't make the headlines because they officially don't exist. Following a personal tragedy in which his wife and child are murdered, Pike is on his own, using just his wits and deadly skills against an Islamic terrorist faction that stumbles upon a deadly new bioweapon. While these are recurring themes in current action fiction, the author adds a worthy female protagonist and unique twists to the usual secret agency-versus-the-bad-guys scenario. The deadly duel between Pike and the terrorists is both cerebral and graphically violent, with a high body count.Verdict Taylor, a former Delta Force commander, brings such incredible realism and authenticity that readers feel like they are looking over the shoulders of a real antiterrorist operation. This will appeal to Brad Thor and Vince Flynn fans. —Michael Schau
