For almost four hundred years, a story has been told in the Rodriguez family about a lost heirloom known as “Llave de Oro.” When two young men find a silver medallion while scuba diving in the Caribbean, the legend appears more fact than fiction. The bizarre disappearance of these two young men leads their parents to contact Phuk and Shanks.
Gill Phuk and Hattie Shanks left the Punta Gorda police force to start their own private investigating business in Los Angeles, but the local police sergeant has no tolerance for their interference. A spot of good luck with the media presents Phuk and Shanks a foothold as they are embraced by the city in a very public way.
When the case of the missing divers takes a turn, the investigators find themselves in Venezuela searching for the famed heirloom. They’re soon caught up in a deadly game of cat and mouse as the Rodriguez family plots to seize the priceless medallion and eliminate anyone who gets in the way. Unfortunately for them—and despite a whirlwind clash of gunfire and grenade attacks—Phuk and Shanks never give up on a case.
