Deep Shadow by Randy Wayne White
Doc Ford and Tomlinson are back hunting treasure in this fast paced 17th book in the series. Arlis Futch, cantankerous old coot and sometime friend of Doc Ford insists he knows where the Batista plane crashed carrying gold from Cuba to Florida in the 1950s. Fleeing Cuba before the Castro brothers took over, Batista raided museums and national treasures to pack 4 cargo planes – all but one landed safely. The fourth plane crashed and treasure hunters have been looking for it ever since.
Arlis Futch thinks he has found the treasure in an inland lake and invited Ford, Tomlinson, and Will Chaser, juvenile delinquent, introduced in the previous book, Dead Silence, to dive in a fresh water lake and find the treasure plane.
