Description

The stunning new thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author. When a Crow Indian acquaintance of Tomlinson's asks him to help recover a relic stolen from his tribe, Doc Ford is happy to tag along—but neither Doc nor Tomlinson realize what they've let themselves in for. Their search takes them to the part of Central Florida known as Bone Valley, famous primarily for two things: a ruthless subculture of black-marketers who trade in illegal artifacts and fossils, and a multibillion-dollar phosphate industry whose strip mines compromise the very ground they walk on. Neither enterprise tolerates nosy outsiders. For each, public exposure equals big financial losses—and in a region built on a million-year accumulation of bones, there is no shortage of spots in which to hide a corpse. Or two.

        January 27, 2014
        The current controversy over phosphate mining provides the backdrop for bestseller White’s solid 21st Doc Ford novel (after 2013’s Night Moves). The marine biologist and former government operative receives a visit from Duncan “Dunk” Fallsdown, a Crow Indian from Montana, at his home in Sanibel Island, Fla. Dunk is searching for two black soapstone carvings that disappeared from tribal lands almost 60 years earlier. Doc’s sidekick, Tomlinson, is behind Dunk’s visit, and likewise behind the trio’s eventual visit to Albright Key, home of phosphate magnate Leland Albright. Leland gives Doc a lesson in the relationship between phosphate mining and fossil hunting, while the others party with Leland’s wife and twin daughters. A descent into the world of overzealous and unethical fossil collectors leads to a boat-napping, stolen artifacts, and increasingly dire threats from a mentally disturbed and physically disfigured biker. As usual, White does a fine job detailing Florida’s unique history and geography, though this isn’t one of Doc’s most suspenseful adventures. Author tour. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM.

        March 1, 2014
        A search for a pair of stone carvings stolen from Crow tribal lands in Montana leads Dr. Marion Ford and his pal Tomlinson to another round of wild and woolly adventures. Although the Charmstones in question were stolen years ago, Duncan Fallsdown, who's come to Sanibel Island to ask Tomlinson's help in finding them, is suddenly in a hurry to show them to his aunt Rachel before her pancreatic cancer kills her. Because the signs point to Florida's Bone Valley, Tomlinson asks Doc Ford to get permission from wealthy Leland Albright, heir to his grandfather's phosphate mines, to search for them there. No sooner has Doc caught a whiff of Albright's dysfunctional family--his fashion model bride, Ava, the twin daughters she's grown oddly close to, and Owen Hall, the stepson his second wife left him--than the trail of the Charmstones leads to the home of Finn Tovar, a notoriously violent relics collector who's just died of a brain tumor. Doc unexpectedly recovers one of the carvings when he turns the tables on Deon Killip, a thief who's hijacked his boat for a getaway, and finds it in his bag. Unfortunately, possession of the carving comes at a high price, since Quirt Reno, a psychotic biker with a bionic arm, is so determined to recover it for himself that he makes all sorts of wild threats, some of which he actually carries out. In Doc's 21st adventure (Night Moves, 2013, etc.), promising characters get submerged in a colorful treasure hunt whose participants are at odds in not-very-interesting ways. When Doc reveals the identity of the malefactor behind the psycho biker, readers realize it doesn't much matter.
