Title Profile & Character Information

Ten Thousand Islands

Annotation
"Fifteen years ago, 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-century-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. Somebody suddenly wants that medallion - but why, and why now? The search for 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..."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
