A Spanish treasure ship is driven by a hurricane onto the rocky shoreline of Elbow Cay in September of 1566. Few of the crew survive, but they manage to salvage most of the treasure and bury it on the island, leaving a clue to its location in a chest placed in the boughs of a young mangrove tree. Four hundred forty years later, Jesse McDermitt and his friends solve the riddle that was hidden inside a chest found encased in the now-ancient mangrove. When the head of the Miami-based Croatian mob learns about the treasure he goes to great lengths and expense, in an attempt to relieve Jesse and his friends of the riches. A demented, hyper-sexed island woman also wants it for her own, as does a hot-shot Miami attorney and his son, who is married to Jesse’s estranged daughter. As the body count grows, will the crew of Gaspar’s Revenge find the treasure or become one of the island’s statistics?

So…So… compared to the previous books. I loved the previous Jesse McDermitt series books. This next book in the series missed the mark a bit for me. I had two major issues with it. One is that it takes coincidence to an extreme level. The second is that it skipped over much of the more intimate and character building parts that made the other books so great while at the same time devoting too much time to other viewpoints of the villains who we care little about. Spoilers may follow…

Good book full of action but …. All said and done it’s a good read and it easily deserves a 3 star rating. It would be a four star if McDermitt would just get into the plot before you had to read a fully one quarter of the book to know where it’s going. In his previous book he went into great detail as to how he developed a private island in the Keys as his home. In this book, he again goes into great detail so that his followers have to read, all about it, all over again. There are so many un-related bad guy…
