Where is Joe Merchant? That's what his sister, Trevor Kane, the hemorrhoid-ointment heiress, wants to know. For Desdemona, Merchant is the missing link in her ongoing communications with space aliens. Tabloid journalist Rudy Breno only cares that Merchant gets bigger headlines than Elvis. And for renegade seaplane pilot Frank Bama, the mystery of the presumed-dead-but-often-sighted rock star is turning his life upside down. In his debut novel, Jimmy Buffett cooks up an irresistible gumbo of dreamers, wackos, pirates, and sharks, as he leads Trevor and Frank on a wild chase through the Caribbean Islands to a place where anything can happen . . . and everything does.

Playing to sold-out stadiums across America every summer, singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett has recorded over 30 albums, including Changes in Latitudes (1977) and Son of a Son of a Sailor (1978), both of which went platinum, and Songs You Know By Heart (1985), which sold double-platinum. Two of his hit singles, Margaritaville and Come Monday, are favorites among his devoted fans. Buffett was born in Pascagoula, Mississippi, on Christmas Day, 1946. He earned a B.S. in history and journalism from the University of Southern Mississippi and worked as a freelance journalist for Inside Sports and Outside magazines. Buffett is the author of two best-selling books, Tales from Margaritaville (1988) and Where Is Joe Merchant? (1992), among others. He is collaborating with the author Herman Wouk on a musical titled Don't Stop The Carnival. Buffett considers Florida his home; however he spends many summers on Long Island.
