Author, Robb White

Born and raised in Northeastern Ohio, Robb White lives a few houses down from where he grew up, rarely leaves home, although he did make it to China once. He has published several crime, noir, and hardboiled novels as well as crime, horror, and mainstream stories in various magazines like Down & Out, Mystery Weekly, Tough, Mystery Tribune, Switchblade, Out of the Gutter, and Near to the Knuckle under the pseudonyms Robb T., Robb, or Terry White.

While writing articles and doing interviews with boxing celebrities such as Don Elbaum and George Chuvalo, for Boxing World, he published his first collection of short stories: “Out of Breath” and Other Stories (2013). Nominated for a Derringer in 2019, his crime story “Inside Man” was selected for Best American Mystery Stories 2019. He has two hardboiled private eyes: Thomas Haftmann, featured in 4 novels and a collection of short stories, and Raimo Jarvi (Northtown Eclipse, 2018). The U.K. website Murder, Mayhem & More cited When You Run with Wolves (2018) as a finalist for its Top Ten Crime Books of 2018 and Perfect Killer for the same distinction in 2019. A recent crime novella is Dead Cat Bounce (2019). “If I Let You Get Me” was selected for the Bouchercon 2019 anthology and The Russian Heist (2019) selected by Thriller Magazine as its Best Novel winner for 2019.

White rarely leaves his house unless it’s to drive his Jeep Wrangler around Northtown, go to the local library and check out the new arrivals shelf in mysteries or read the local paper for ideas that lend themselves to his fiction (no shortage of mayhem, violence, and stupidity in the Midwest, he believes, or in any city, large or small). He’s been married to Judy for over 50 years (who loves him but never reads him); he has 3 grown children, adores his 3 grandchildren and spoils his black cat Athena. His website:

Saraband for a Runaway
A Thomas Haftmann Mystery

by Robb White,

$3.99 ebook, $15.95 paperback

Thomas Haftmann didn’t recognize the word Saraband when the girl said it. He had to look it up: “a stately court dance from the eighteenth century in “slow triple time.” Haftmann was a down-on-his-luck private eye with an ex-wife and debts, so he did skiptracing for a local bondsman. But then he takes an assignment to go to Florida to retrieve a runaway girl, a scholarship student named Raina Toivela. This job, I thought, will be easier than most. However, the assignment doesn’t go as smoothly as he’d hoped. That’s all too often the case for a private eye. Welcome to his world!
