Proving yet again that life can always trump fiction in the contest for strangeness, Merritt, a former lawyer, recounts his experiences with a couple of clients embroiled in dope busts and lost Spanish gold on the Oregon coast. Merritt's capers involve four cases whose connections he did not discover for 19 years. Underlying the story is one of the longest and most tantalizing hunts for lost treasure in history.
