He wasn’t a man to be trifled with . . . so what was he doing floating around in the ocean? As Tony investigates, he discovers that Milagros, the wife he thought died in Cuba, is alive. Rescuing her now means returning to his homeland and putting his life on the line. But the good doctor has a few surprises of his own up his sleeve . . .
