Back cover copy

Where is Joe Merchant? Five years ago, the rock star committed suicide,
yet he keeps popping back into the tabloid headlines like a piece of toast.
Could he actually be alive? That's what his sister, hemorrhoid-ointment heiress
Trevor Kane, wants to know. Journalist Rudy Breno cares only that Merchant
gets bigger headlines than Elvis. And for renegade seaplane pilot Frank Bama,
the mystery is turning his life upside down.
Once again, Jimmy Buffett cooks up an irresistible gumbo of dreamers,
wackos, pirates, and sharks, as he leads Trevor and Frank on a wild chase
through the Caribbean to a place where anything can happen . . . and everything
does.
"A high-jinks lark and a breezy read." -T H E B O S T O N G LO B E
"Enough hair-breadth escapes and miraculous rescues to fill two Robert
Ludlum novels and have enough left over for an episode of Rescue 911.
All that and talking dolphins too." -E N T E R TA I N M E N T W E E K LY
