Fifteen years after a young girl unearths an ancient gold medallion and then mysteriously dies, Doc Ford investigates strange occurrences at the girl's home and concludes that a dangerous person is determined to find the medallion

Blackwell North Amer
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...
