The Crooked Pearl
The storied pearl beds of La Paz were long thought destroyed until a local fisherman discovers a handful of rare, red-tinged pearls and one extraordinary, enormous pear-shaped specimen. But when the pearls are swept away from the fisherman in a storm and stumbled upon by a vacationing American couple, it could mean big bucks—and even bigger trouble—for all involved. Enter dashing billionaire and beloved expatriate Atticus Fish. When he learns about the pearls, he knows he’d better intervene before all hell breaks loose.
Fish has worked hard to protect his beloved Baja Coast and knows all too well the kind of trouble that a discovery like this could bring to La Paz. Sure enough, it’s not long before the pearls are swiped from Fish’s seaplane (thanks to the loose lips of his friend, the infamous mescal bootlegger Skegs) and his beloved Cantina del Cielo is burned to the ground. Fortunately all of Fish’s employees, including two drunken iguanas and a parrot named Chuy, are unharmed, but the message from the bad guys is loud and clear.
Now Fish and Skegs are off to find the thief and deliver some payback before word gets out about the precious pearl beds. A raucous romp through beautiful, lawless Baja, California, this third installment of the Atticus Fish series will leave even the most seasoned adventurers breathless.
