Description
Murder, sunken treasure, and pirates both ancient and modern send Doc Ford on a nightmare quest in the thrilling new novel in the New York Times-bestselling series.Marine biologist Doc Ford's been known to help his friends out of jams occasionally, but he's never faced a situation like this.His old pal Carl Fitzpatrick has been chasing sunken wrecks most of his life, but now he's run afoul of the Florida Division of Historical Resources. Its director, Clive Nickelby, despises amateur archaeologists, which is bad enough, but now he and his young "assistant" have disappeared—along with Fitzpatrick's impounded cache of rare Spanish coins and the list of uncharted wreck sites Fitz spent decades putting together. Some of Fitz's own explorations have been a little...dicey, so he can't go to the authorities. Doc is his only hope.But greed makes people do terrible things: rob, cheat, even kill. With stakes this high, there's no way the thieves will go quietly—and Doc's just put himself in their crosshairs.

fullDescription
Murder, sunken treasure, and pirates both ancient and modern send Doc Ford on a nightmare quest in the thrilling new novel in the New York Times-bestselling series.
Marine biologist Doc Ford's been known to help his friends out of jams occasionally, but he's never faced a situation like this.
His old pal Carl Fitzpatrick has been chasing sunken wrecks most of his life, but now he's run afoul of the Florida Division of Historical Resources. Its director, Clive Nickelby, despises amateur archaeologists, which is bad enough, but now he and his young "assistant" have disappeared—along with Fitzpatrick's impounded cache of rare Spanish coins and the list of uncharted wreck sites Fitz spent decades putting together. Some of Fitz's own explorations have been a little...dicey, so he can't go to the authorities. Doc is his only hope.
But greed makes people do terrible things: rob, cheat, even kill. With stakes this high, there's no way the thieves will go quietly—and Doc's just put himself in their crosshairs.

        Bestseller White’s diverting, if sluggish, 25th Doc Ford novel (after 2017’s Mangrove Lightning) focuses on an unlikely couple. A chance meeting in Ocala National Forest between unhappily married Leonard Nickelby, a college professor working for a Florida state agency that monitors treasure hunters, and much younger Lydia Johnson, a former student of his who’s illegally looking for treasure in the park, leads to an affair. Eight months later, the two set off for the Bahamas in search of treasure. On their trail is marine biologist and sometime government operative Doc, who’s worried that the pair might get into trouble, as they soon do. The diminutive Leonard proves surprisingly brave in various perilous situations, but he can’t prevent Efren Donner, a nasty Hollywood mogul in cahoots with Salvadorian drug dealers, from taking him and Lydia captive. In a tense chapter, Lydia must try hard to keep Efren from doing further violence. Many readers will enjoy the boating and fishing lore, but others will wish that Doc and friends had done less talking in between the action scenes. Author tour. Agent, Esther Newberg, ICM.

        Looks like Dr. Marion Ford's latest research project in marine biology will have to wait for yet another tangle, his 25th, with members of a lower species.Doc Ford (Mangrove Lightning, 2017, etc.) tells everyone who'll listen that he's come to the Bahamas to continue his study of sharks' responses to the sound of boat engines. Even though he has official documents to support his story, it's not the whole story; he's really looking for archaeologist Leonard Nickelby, a former professor who ended his partnership with aging treasure hunter Carl Fitzpatrick by running off with three antique coins and a logbook recording all the best places Fitzpatrick had to search for booty. It turns out that Nickelby and his former student Lydia Johnson, who's injecting him with the testosterone she's scored from her stint in a veterinary practice, are after bigger, more recent booty: the $400 million Lydia's former boss, con man Jimmy Jones, had skimmed from Benthic Exploration and managed to hide somewhere before Nickelby's testimony helped send him to prison, where he was killed a few weeks ago. As Ford's search for the searchers leads him first to dive-shack owner Tamarinda Constance then to Hubert "Sandman" Purcell, the trawler captain she spurned, his old pal Seagard Tomlinson learns that Ford's not the only one looking for the people who are looking for the treasure. From this point on, felonies pop up faster than barnacles on a boat's hull. So many characters are hiding so many secrets that so many other characters learn something about that it's no surprise to find ad hoc alliances sprouting and dissolving hours later. The extravagant criminal tally includes impersonation, abduction, assault and battery, the reckless operation of seagoing vessels, and enough homicide to seriously thin the cast of treasure hunters and the people hunting them.Despite the reflective tone of the tale, the plot is driven by so many boats moving at such top speeds that you have to hope there are no sharks in the neighborhood. If there are, poor them.
