About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
A convoluted story with multiple plots, Caribbean islands with secret orgies, blackmail, and a high priestess who is deformed.
But first, wales are beaching on Captiva, so Doc Ford and a cohort race there, jump in the water, get attacked by hammerhead sharks who then are fought off by the wales who change their minds about beaching themselves. Silly.
Then mild manner biologist, Ford, who's really a retired CIA spook, jumps a flight to the islands where he pretends to be a visitor, even though the cult knows who he is. No, really.
Of course, he meets even stranger people who all either try to kill him or have sex with him, or both.
Did I mention there's a lot of sex, but it's so clinical that I'm not sure anything happened.
Oh, and our hero runs to the island to defeat the blackmailers, but he doesn't want to shoot anyone because he's a good guy, so he throws them over the cliff instead.
Did I mention the rich eccentric who is his ally, gets his hand ripped off by dogs but never complains?
