The bride and bridesmaids had a pretty wild bachelorette party and someone had secretly taped it. Now the person wants money or he'll put the videotape on the Internet.
When Doctor Ford and his colleague Tomlinson start on an archaeological expedition of fossils in Florida to find an ancient relic of a tribal clan, they soon stumble upon some rare findings that makes them targets of black marketeers and multi billion dollar phosphate industries.
It began peacefully enough, on one of Florida's private islands. At a reception hosted by a notorious Russian black marketeer, Doc Ford uses darkness, and his friend Tomlinson, as cover to get an underwater look at the billionaire's yacht. By the time Ford surfaces, everything has changed. Environmental extremists have taken control of the island. Or are they thugs hired by the Russian's competitors? Whatever the motive, they have herded everyone together and threatened to kill one hostage every hour until midnight unless their demands are met--at which point they will just blow everybody up. Electronic jammers make communications with the outside world impossible. The only hope of avoiding terrible consequences: The militants do not know Ford's capabilities, or that he is still on the loose. But that situation won't last for long . . . and the clock is ticking.
What if I had stopped by Jobe's home on Friday instead of Sunday night? What if I hadn't interrupted the interrogation and beating? Would he have lived? Or died? And what would have happened then?
Nothing Doc Ford did to earn entrance to the Explorers' Club can match what he'll encounter when his date - a U.S. senator - is nearly assassinated before his eyes and then mysteriously vanishes.
Doc Ford wrestles more than one kind of demon, in the stunning novel from the New York Times-bestselling author. Many dangers lurk in the deep--the worst of them are human. Thirty minutes into what should have been an easy, beginner-level dive in a remote Florida lake, the rim of a cave collapses, trapping two of Doc Ford's friends. Ford himself manages to escape and quickly surfaces to find help--but that's when his troubles only begin. Two men are waiting for him on the shore, and they are not the kind of men you want to meet at any time. Murderers and ex-cons, they're intent on diving to the bottom of the very deep lake and uncovering the remains of a legendary plane wreck there, supposedly loaded with Cuban treasury gold. Ford's expertise is just what they need. And if he doesn't want to help? He can die. His friends? They can die, too. In fact, they can die right now. As the hours tick away, two mortal struggles unfold simultaneously, one above and one below. Neither outcome is certain, no man is safe ... and in the deep shadow, only death awaits.
Doc Ford is on a collision course with death in this extraordinary new novel from the New York Times bestselling author. A lot is going on in the trailer park known as Little Guadalajara, inhabited principally by illegal laborers. The park manager is the hired gun of a financial syndicate that wants to develop the property, and he's prepared to do whatever it takes--but he can't figure out what to do about the teenage girl, the one the laborers believe has some sort of gift. When she witnesses him killing a man, though, and runs, there's nothing left to figure: He's got to find her fast and shut her up good. Her only hope for survival: a marine biologist (and sometimes more) named Doc Ford, who along with his stoned, hippie friend Tomlinson, must undertake a search through an underground, invisible nation... and just hope he reaches her first.
Ford hoped he had left his violent past behind him, but his son has been kidnapped by a hired killer, whose face is a network of burn scars and whose favorite torture instrument is a lighted match.
Four people head out from Florida to dive a deep-water wreck. Two days later, one of them is found standing atop a light tower naked and waving her wetsuit. Of the others, not a trace is ever found.
