A Category Four hurricane has swept the west coast of Florida, creating havoc, changing lives, and reshaping the ocean bottom. It also uncovers a long-forgotten shipwreck that leads Doc Ford to an old woman in a secluded, worn-down mansion. She tells him the haunting story of a lost love, and of her chance to discover the truth if Ford will salvage the boat-the Dark Light. Intrigued, Ford agrees, and sets in motion a chain of events that will change his life forever. For there are other things in that wreck as well. Things other men want. Things worth killing for. And behind it all is an old woman whose heart remains the greatest mystery of all...
This is #13 in Doc Ford series.
