Item description for The Jade Head by Patrick Grady...

A Hemingway-esque adventure that even Hemingway might have declined!

After getting sacked from his job as an accountant, Bob Wayne leaves behind two ex-wives, four kids and a hurt girlfriend and goes looking for adventure in the tropical country of Belize. In between deep-sea fishing and snorkeling in the warm, turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean, he learns about a famous Mayan jade statue of the Sun God, Kinich Ahau. Together with a mysterious American planter and an exotic Creole beauty, Bob gets caught up in a risky adventure that sets his life on a dramatically new and unexpected course. Meanwhile, back home in a small town in Illinois, his girlfriend Donna has a few adventures of her own that Bob never could have imagined.

Accompanying Bob Wayne on his suspenseful, but humorous, path to a surprise ending, you will glimpse the beauty and romance of the tropical paradise of Belize, as well as its darker underside; and you'll learn about the Creoles, Mestizos, Garifunas, Mayans and even the Mennonites who live there.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Jade Head?

Fascinating   Sep 24, 2004
Jade Head is a combination adventure thriller, travel log that delights equally on both scores. Bob Wayne is a washed up loser who is still somewhat anxious to achieve something with his life. He abandons financial and personal problems at home by escaping to Belize. The jungles and beaches of the Caribbean paradise provide a spectacular backdrop for a series of nail-biting escapades. Grady's characters are complex and believable, his plot is engaging and his descriptions completely mesmerizing. He skillfully weaves Belize's rich history into the plot's twists and turns. Jade Head is a great tale and well worth a read.
