Overview
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.

At issue in bestseller Whites entertaining, if less than compelling, 24th novel featuring marine biologist and sometime government agent Marion Doc Ford (after 2016s Deep Blue) is the fate of Florida Everglades property owned by retired fishing guide Tootsie Barlow. Barlows 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. Barlows ancestors were involved in the bootlegging battle, and Docs sometime lover, Hannah Smith, is a descendant of the murder victim. Now Barlows 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 thats something of a stretch in this fragmented adventure. Author tour. Agent: Esther Newberg, ICM. (Mar.)
