In The Florida Caper, a rare and valuable jewelry piece, Eye of the Sun, gets stolen from its owner, a Palm Beach, Florida-based industrialist. The missing jewelry contains fragments of the cursed Hope Diamond. He soon asks his nephew, Greg, to find the missing treasure.
Greg teams up with private investigators Mike and Tina in a search that brings them from the Sunshine State to Puerto Rico and the Bahamas, where a powerful drug dealer happens to possess the Eye of the Sun. When they retrieve the jewelry piece, the curse begins to manifest, setting in motion more troubles and challenges ahead for Greg and his team.
