9781612184982: El Dorado Blues (An Atticus Fish Novel)

In the badlands of southern Baja, retired expatriate billionaire Atticus Fish finds himself sabotaging illegal commercial longliners from his one-man submarine, and schooling boneheaded tourists in civility. But when archaeologist Duncan Rigby gets kidnapped while on the trail of the legendary Jesuit Treasure, intrepid PI Toozie McGill enlists Atticus to fire up his seaplane and fly off in pursuit. Finding the archaeologist is one thing; recovering the stolen jewels is something else altogether. Now that word of the Treasure is out, will Atticus and his sideckick, mescal bootlegger Skegs, stand a chance against the deadly wave of treasure hunters who wash up on Baja’s shores?

A delightfully offbeat mystery adventure brimming with colorful characters and local atmosphere, El Dorado Blues will charm readers in the best-selling tradition of Carl Hiaasen, Elmore Leonard, and Jimmy Buffett.

About the Author:

Shaun Morey is the best-selling author of the Incredible Fishing Stories series and a contributor to magazines and newspapers worldwide. He won the inaugural Abbey-Hill short-story contest and is a three-time winner of the Los Angeles Times novel-writing contest. Over the years, he has worked as a bartender, a fishmonger, a surf instructor, and an attorney while secretly planning his own escape into the badlands of Baja California.

From Booklist:

Atticus Fish—the attorney who sued God, won, and then retreated with his millions to a sand castle in Baja—is back, and this time he’s landed in the middle of an even crazier caper than the one he engineered in Wahoo Rhapsody (2011). Atticus’ friend, the beguiling Toozie, asks for his help in tracking down a missing archaeologist, Digby Rigby, who has disappeared in a particularly foreboding mix of mountains and desert in the Baja interior. So begins an outlandish treasure hunt: Digby is on the trail of the legendary Jesuit Treasure, Baja’s version of El Dorado, but unlike the thousands who came before him, he’s found it—and promptly lost it, of course. That’s only the beginning; the treasure changes hands multiple times as Atticus and crew cavort about Baja, on land, sea, and in the air, attempting to secure the treasure or, alternatively, avoid its curse. Naturally, there’s a bizarre crew of bad guys on the scene, including one very bad lady with a Howard Hughes thing about germs. None of it makes much sense, but that’s half the fun in Morey’s tequila-fueled comic caperville. --Bill Ott
