The remarkable new novel in the Doc Ford series by New York Times–bestselling author Randy Wayne White.
 
Doc Ford’s old friend, General Juan Garcia, has gone into the lucrative business of smuggling Cuban baseball players into the U.S. He is also feasting on profits made by buying historical treasures for pennies on the dollar. He prefers what dealers call HPC items—high-profile collectibles—but when he manages to obtain a collection of letters written by Fidel Castro between 1960–62 to a secret girlfriend, it’s not a matter of money anymore. Garcia has stumbled way out of his depth.

First Garcia disappears, and then the man to whom he sold the letters. When Doc Ford begins to investigate, he soon becomes convinced that those letters contain a secret that someone, or some powerful agency, cannot allow to be made public.

A lot happened between Cuba and the United States from 1960–62. Many men died. A few more will hardly be noticed. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “White smoothly combines history, action, and colorful characters into a savory concoction easily devoured in a single sitting.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Will the truth about the 1959 revolution, the Bay of Pigs invasion, and the killing of JFK come to light? Not if sadistic Santeria priest Vernum Quick and his Russian handler, Anatol Kostikov, have anything to say about it…Cuba provides the perfect setting for White’s recent fondness for episodic, hallucinatory quests.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Veteran narrator George Guidall is at the top of his game in this slickly written, slightly kooky crime story, the twenty-second in the Doc Ford crime series. Guidall, who has narrated previous Doc Ford thrillers, is an ideal fit, partially because of his dry tone and excellent timing and partially due to his mastery of Spanish inflections. There’s a lot going on here as Ford and his simpatico sidekick, Tomlinson, travel from the Gulf Coast to Cuba to fight off ex-KGB agents and Santeria priests. At the same time, they must unravel some historical riddles…Like the other works in this series, the audiobook is rewarding as much for its plot and pacing as for its Gulf Coast and marine details.”
