Description
Florida attracts con men and predators. It always has.Fifteen years before, in the labyrinth of mangrove, sawgrass, and swamp called the Ten Thousand Islands, off Florida's Gulf coast, a fifteen-year-old girl with a gift for finding things unearthed a four? hundred-year-old gold medallion, a relic of the Calusa Indians. Then she began having nightmares. And then she was found hanging from the limb of a tree.An accident, ruled the coroner, but now Doc Ford isn't so sure. Strange things have been happening recently, the girl's mother tells him. Her home has been broken into; the phone rings and there's no one there; and, worst of all, her daughter's grave has been dug up. Someone suddenly wants that medallion--but why, and why now? The search for the answers will lead Ford into a labyrinth of another kind, a maze of ancient ritual and modern greed, and, finally, to a place of infinite evil. . . Filled with crackling prose and atmosphere, and some of the best characters in suspense fiction, Ten Thousand Islands is a triumph of storytelling."We'll always drop anything to read a new Randy Wayne White novel, and be glad we did." --The Denver Post

Government agent-turned-marine biologist Doc Ford sails an endless sea of questions when he agrees to investigate a death from the past. Years ago, off Florida's Gulf Coast, a teenaged girl found an ancient gold medallion. Then, she began having nightmares. Then she was found hanging from a tree.

Now, years later, the girl's mother is being terrorized with break-ins, phone calls with no one there—and her daughter's grave has been dug up. Somebody wants that medallion.

The search for answers will lead Doc through a shadowy world of ancient ritual and modern corruption, to an evil that was born in the past—but lives in the present...
