One of my favorites is the sometimes hard (but
mostly soft) boiled Randy Wayne White. Doc Ford
and Tomlinson have given me a few thrills and a
few laughs over the years. Entertaining series.
I think that calling Doc Ford 'Softboiled' does a disservice to anybody who hasn't read the series.
I would consider , 'The Mangrove Coast' for instance, as about as far from softboiled as it gets. I couldn't get the final image out of my head for months.
Two other Florida writers you might consider are
Lawrence Shames ( 'Dutch' Leonard territory) and E.C. Ayres who created a Florida PI, Tony Lowell,
