This third installment in the Atticus Fish series takes listeners on an unforgettable adventure through treacherous Baja California. The storied pearl beds of La Paz were long thought destroyed, but when a local fisherman discovers a handful of rare, red-tinged pearls, it could mean big bucks — and even bigger trouble — for all involved. Enter billionaire expatriate Atticus Fish, who knows he’d better act fast before all hell breaks loose. He knows all too well the danger the discovery will bring, so when the pearls are brutally swiped from Fish, he and his trusty friend Skegs set off to capture the thief, running afoul of a host of lowlifes along the way.
“Morey capably mixes a bit of Donald Westlake with a little Brad Smith, a touch of Elmore Leonard, and a healthy dose of Carl Hiaasen . . . [He] walks the line . . . with the dexterity and superhuman balance of a veteran drinker acing a highway sobriety test." — Booklist
“Author Shaun Morey is Baja California’s Clive Cussler, but better, as he creates unique characters, gets you hooked in the first couple of pages.” — The Baja Sun
“What a fun read! . . . Morey wows the reader (and) keeps us guessing until the end . . .” — Suspense Magazine
