Publisher's Summary

A miniature painting of a mermaid drawn in bat’s blood is taking the art world by storm. Why was it adrift at sea in a bottle, a coded message etched in the glass? Who painted it and why? 

It is up to Larry Settlebottom, a sheltered museum curator, to decipher the riddle. His adventures take him to Mexico and beyond as he encounters modern-day pirates, corrupted oceanographers, and a band of romantic sea gypsies, all leading him to a remote island where madness, death, and art live together.

The book seemed to he predictable. Audio quality had background noises in it. Story was interesting enough, but characters could have been fleshed out a little more, for me.
