Marine biologist Doc Ford has 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, Leonard 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.

What went wrong?
I have read all of the Doc Ford books and enjoyed them. Unfortunately, this latest publication really disappoints. I do not know whether it is a writing issue or an editing issue, but I had a very hard time following the story and understanding which characters were speaking. There was little, if any, exciting anticipation of what the big reveal may be. And when it was exposed, it was a real yawn. Whites research on ancient shipwrecks was too prevalent in the story. Although I do like to be educated, I did not choose a historical novel. I chose a mystery.
