Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Marine biologist and former government agent Doc Ford is sure he's beyond the point of being surprised by his longtime pal Tomlinson's madcap tales of his misspent youth. But he's stunned anew when avowed bachelor Tomlinson reveals that as a younger man strapped for cash, he'd unwittingly fathered multiple children via for-profit sperm bank donations. Thanks to genealogy websites, Tomlinson's now-grown offspring have tracked him down, seeking answers about their roots. . . but Doc quickly grows suspicious that one of them might be planning something far more nefarious than a family reunion. With recent history on his mind, Doc is unsurprised when his own dicey past is called into question. Months ago, he'd quietly "liberated" a cache of precious Spanish coins from a felonious treasure hunter, and now a number of unsavory individuals, including a disgraced IRS investigator and a corrupt Bahamian customs agent, are after their cut. Caught between watching his own back and Tomlinson's, Doc has no choice but to get creative--before rash past decisions escalate to deadly present-day dangers"--

    *Starred Review* Remember all that Spanish gold that Doc Ford, marine biologist and black-ops specialist, and his pal Tomlinson, world-class hedonist and internationally revered guru and hippie philosopher, were hunting in Caribbean Rim (2018)? Well, Doc's got it, or at least some of it, but gold brings trouble, as becomes all too clear when a bent IRS investigator, in league with an equally bent Bahamian customs official, comes calling. But that's not even the biggest problem on the agenda: years ago, we learn, Tomlinson supported himself largely through donations to a for-profit sperm bank; now, with the help of DNA testing and genealogy websites, numerous of his grown offspring have also come calling, some to sit at the knees of a famous guru, others with a multitude of grievances, including a crazed terrorist who has been targeting infertility clinics. While trying to fend off the customs agent and help Tomlinson deal with possible trouble at a proposed reunion of his brood, Doc struggles with his relationship with Hannah, the mother of his young son. As always, the fruit of White's research—this time, on deep-sea treasure hunting, red tides, and the technique of confused insemination—will hold readers rapt on its own, supported, of course, by Doc's good heart and Tomlinson's mercurial personality.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The twenty-sixth Doc Ford novel is a sure bet to join numerous of its predecessors on best-seller lists everywhere.
