When the treasure-laden Spanish galleon, The Atocha, sinks off the Marquesas Islands during a 1622 hurricane, its $400 million in treasure remained untouched for 351 years until discovered by treasure hunter, Mel Fisher, and moved to the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum in Key West.

Joined by his ex-Navy SEAL sidekick, Sam Duncan, Moore finds his assignment taking a dramatic change as he is lured into a spider web of intrigue.

Investigative reporter Emerson Moore finds himself enmeshed in a web of intrigue Nov 11, 2005
Once again the Washington Post investigative reporter Emerson Moore finds himself enmeshed in a web of intrigue. This time its when he travels down to Key West, Florida, to cover hurricane Charley's devastating impact. Moore's reporting assignment takes an unexpected and potentially lethal change as he discovers and uncovers cold-blooded murder plots, double crosses, and a plot to steal $400 million in treasure under the protective cover of the hurricane.

Great Vacation Reading Aug 19, 2005
I saved "When Rainbows Walk" to read during my vacation in Myrtle Beach, and found myself sitting on the deck overlooking the ocean and completely engrossed in this action-packed tale - at 7AM!!! I love the Key West atmosphere and the surprisingly despicable characters that lurk there. There were many unexpected twists and turns; I could not put the book down. I definitely recommend this book, but not if you plan to sleep late!
I began reading Bob Adamov's books because of the Put-In-Bay references, and he hasn't let me down. I love reading about so many of my favorite people and places - West Side Steve, Mad Dog Adams, the Beer Barrel Saloon, the Boardwalk, and, of course, the Sunday afternoon Antique Car Parade. I can't wait to see what sort of mess Emerson gets himself into on the Island, or where his travels take him, in the next book.
Get busy, Bob, I'm ready for more!

Key West Mystery Jul 28, 2005
This is a great read which is very hard to put down. The characters fit right for the Conch Republic. The mystery keeps unfolding, twisting, and turning throughout book. Anyone who likes to know more about Key West will enjoy this book as well as fans of Emerson Moore and his side-kick Sam Duncan who cannot wait for another exciting adventure.

This really is a must read book. I could not put it down. Really should start with the first book but don't have too. Keeps you going the whole time your reading it.Can't wait for the next book to come out. Really good reading.

This book is easy reading and hard to put down. Plots intermingle and many surprises are in store for the reader. It was enjoyable to see Bob's usual characters being true to form and the new ones full of various expertises. Bob's descriptions of scuba diving recovery in Lake Erie are accurate and exciting as are his descriptions of real places like restaurants, stores, and neighborhoods. I'm looking forward to seeing more diving activities from him in his future books.
