Doc Ford is quickly drawn back into action when his god daughter, Shay, is blackmailed just a few days before her wedding. Demanding big money, the blackmailers threaten to reveal videotaped sexual activities Shay and her three bridesmaids engaged in on a pre-wedding getaway trip she arranged to a private beach house on an exclusive island in the Caribbean. The girls manage to scrape together $110, 000, but the blackmailers want more, of course. Using contacts from his former profession, Doc intends to uncover the mastermind behind the blackmail operation, and retrieve or destroy any remaining copies of the incriminating tape. With help from an old contact from his previous secret profession, as well as assistance from a new acquaintance with a similar background and skills, on a similar mission. With his new friend, Doc travels to the island to scope out the blackmailer's operation and develop a plan of action. He finds the operation much more extensive and evil than he had surmised, and the biggest surprise is, the villain is not a man! It is actually run by a white woman, known locally as an "obeah witch," who grows rare orchids, and whose "spa" is a cover for the blackmail operations. This woman comes from an old, powerful, European family, and wields remarkable power over the locals! How Doc and his allies uncover the truth, and defeat the witch and her minions makes for a rollicking, nail-biting thriller, that I couldn't stop reading, as usual. There's also a teaser for the next Doc Ford thriller at the end of this book. What more could you ask for? Randy Wayne White never disappoints!
