Description
The ghosts of a 1925 multiple murder stalk Doc Ford, in the electrifying new novel in the New York Times–bestselling series. Doc Ford has been involved in many strange cases. This may be one of the strangest. A legendary charter captain and guide named Tootsie Barlow has come to him, muttering about a curse. The members of his extended family have suffered a bizarre series of attacks, and Barlow is convinced it has something to do with a multiple murder in 1925, in which his family had a shameful part. Ford doesn't believe in curses, but as he and his friend Tomlinson begin to investigate, following the trail of the attacks from Key Largo to Tallahassee, they, too, suffer a series of near-fatal mishaps. Is it really a curse? Or just a crime spree? The answer lies in solving a near-hundred-year-old murder . . . and probing the mind of a madman.From the Hardcover edition.

        At issue in bestseller White’s entertaining, if less than compelling, 24th novel featuring marine biologist and sometime government agent Marion “Doc” Ford (after 2016’s Deep Blue) is the fate of Florida Everglades property owned by retired fishing guide Tootsie Barlow. Barlow’s property is near Marco Island, which during Prohibition was the site of a war between bootleggers, such illegal activities as human smuggling (mostly Chinese), and the 1925 disappearance of Deputy J.H. Cox, who may have murdered a woman a few years earlier, along with his whole family. Barlow’s ancestors were involved in the bootlegging battle, and Doc’s sometime lover, Hannah Smith, is a descendant of the murder victim. Now Barlow’s few remaining relatives are meeting with fatal accidents, and Doc and his “boat bum hipster pal,” Tomlinson, head to Marco Island to investigate. There they confront a number of human monsters controlled by a most unlikely mastermind, who takes an interest in Hannah that’s something of a stretch in this fragmented adventure. Author tour.

        A 24th adventure for Marion "Doc" Ford (Deep Blue, 2016, etc.) interrupts his pursuit of a child pornographer to take him into even murkier waters: a kidnapping apparently haunted by a similar crime nearly a century ago.Back during Prohibition, as an opening Author's Note obligingly recounts, crusading real-life Deputy John Henry Cox briefly made headlines by disappearing along with his whole family in the middle of his investigation of a bootlegging ring that had made it clear that his attentions weren't welcome. The case was never closed, and it's mostly been forgotten--except by Tootsie Barlow, a noted fishing guide who's convinced that his late father Albert's involvement in the bootlegging is somehow responsible for his own family's considerable troubles. Tootsie's 17-year-old niece, Gracie, has vanished as completely as Deputy Cox; in fact, as Tootsie doesn't yet know, she's been kidnapped by an unlovely duo who include Ivy Lambeth, the daughter of legendary smuggler Walter Lambeth, and someone who may or may not be Ivy's nephew Slaten, the tattoo artist Gracie's chosen as her unsuitable boyfriend. Doc's off in the Bahamas on the trail of child porn merchant Jimmy Lutz, and although he promises to return home to Sanibel Island in response to his buddy Tomlinson's urgent phone call about the Barlow family's woes, he doesn't even get out of Lutz's hotel before another entanglement pops up, this one featuring Lady Gillian Cobourg, an unacknowledged relative of the royal family whom Doc needs to rescue from a fate worse than death. What will have become of Gracie Barlow by the time he gets home? White comes up with a novel way to re-examine historical crimes: reincarnate the criminals as fictional present-day killers. It's a crazy idea, and some crazy developments trail in its wake, but it works better than you might expect.
