Sinossi

"Absorbing....Soc is an appealing, witty protagonist..and the Cape Cod locale is rendered with panache in this face-paced enjoyable yarn."
Publisher's Weekly

Life’s a Beach—Until Murder Rolls in With the Tide

A 50-million-dollar salvage operation. An expert diver dead at the bottom of the sea. An elegant mermaid in a black Porsche—and an open invitation to dip into the troubled waters of her marriage. Cape Cod’s Aristotle “Soc” Socarides, part-time fisherman, part-time private eye, is swimming with the sharks. Only problem is, he’s the bait…and blood is beginning to boil to the surface.

Soc didn’t think he could get in much deeper, but he’d better think again. A family debt of honor comes due—a debt only he can settle—plunging him into the middle of a lethal search for buried treasure. Now Soc’s about to discover how deadly the Cape’s currents can be. Snarled in a net of smuggling, treachery, and revenge, he’s finding out that no matter how far down you go, nothing’s harder to salvage than the truth.

"Absolutely the best private-eye mystery I've read. I can't wait for the next one."
Bestselling Author, Clive Cussler

L'autore

My fiction-writing career owes it start to the bad navigation of an 18th century pirate. For it was in 1717 that a ship, the Whydah went aground, reportedly carrying a treasure. In the 1980s, three salvage groups went head-to-head, competing to find the wreck. The controversy over the salvage got hot at times and I thought there might be a book in their story. I developed my own detective, an ex-cop, diver, fisherman, and PI named Aristotle "Soc" Socarides. He was more philosophical than hard-boiled. Making his first appearance in "Cool Blue Tomb," the book won the Shamus award for Best Paperback novel. After many years in the newspaper business, I turned to writing fiction and churned out five more books in the series. Clive Cussler blurbed: "There can be no better mystery writer in America than Paul Kemprecos." Despite the accolades, the Soc series lingered in mid-list hell. By the time I finished my last book, I was thinking about another career that might make me more money, like working in a 7-11. Several months after the release of "Bluefin Blues," Clive called and said a spin-off from the Dirk Pitt series was in the works. It would be called the NUMA Files and he wondered if I would be interested in tackling the job. My wife closed the deal when she said: "What else have you got to do?" The answer was "nothing," and I took on the writing of "Serpent" which brought into being Kurt Austin and the NUMA Special Assignments Team. Austin had some carry-over from Soc, and another team member, Paul Trout, had been born on Cape Cod. The book made The New York Times bestseller list, as did every one of seven NUMA Files that followed, including "Polar Shift," which bumped "The DaVinci Code" for first place. I continue to write and am working on the e-book release of my Soc series. Christi and I live on Cape Cod where she has her own financial services business. We live in a circa 1865 farmhouse with two cats. We have three children and seven granddaughters. To learn more about Paul Kemprecos, check out his website at http://www.paulkemprecos.com/.

3.0 su 5 stelle OMGoodness 3 settembre 2013
Di Terry McAdams - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
I remember in college my literature professor explained that good writing required colorful, descriptive scenes. You didn't write "the sun sat". You wrote something like "the orange disk settled into the burning ocean" or some such thing.

Well, Paul Kemprecos took this style of writing to a whole different level. Most books attempt to provide descriptive phrases in the beginning and then it is left behind and the author just tells his/her story. Not so with Paul Kemprecos. Not only are his descriptive phrases throughout the book but they are so long winded that they became boring and irritating. I swear one such phrase went on for half a page. I got to the point where I would just skip down a paragraph, or so, and continue from there.

Too much descriptive phrasing aside, the story was very slow and not very exciting. This book will not keep you up at night. I liked the premise of a treasure hunt but I could not get into the character of the detective, his Greek family and his lifestyle. It did take me a while to figure out the ending and that alone kept me going.

I see he has other books in this series. I don't think I will be reading any of them unless I run out of my favorite authors. I really don't see what Clive Cussler saw in this book to offer him a job writing for him. Maybe Mr. Cussler read all the books in the series and the others are much better than this one.

I also see a lot of 5 star reviews. I would be skeptical of a new authors 5 star reviews. You would be surprised how many family members and social friends will give a new author 5 stars just to help him out. I'm not saying this has happened here, to this author, but I know firsthand it does happen.

2.0 su 5 stelle Too many typos 30 ottobre 2013
Di Tracy L Schubel - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
Perhaps it was just that I bought a Kindle edition, but my copy was so full of typos, misused words and missing words that it was difficult to enjoy the story. I would have to go back and reread a sentence or section 2 or 3 times to figure out what they were trying to say. It was extremely frustrating. I bought The Emerald Scepter and loved it - no problem with typos there - so I'm not sure what the issue was here.

I loved the Cussler/Kemprecos NUMA series; but, this book lacked something. Guess they are just better when they write together. Not sure if I'll read the next one of this series.

This was a great read. Great characters and plot. I grew up on the water in Florida where my family was in the shrimping business and I could relate to many of the descriptions of the coastline culture.

3.0 su 5 stelle Very Descriptively Wordy 17 gennaio 2014
Di TinaKay - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
I have just started this book and am uncertain whether I will finish. Too wordy. In the beginning the author describes the night and the location. It was very well described and at first I liked it, but then I quickly realized it will take me days to finish the book if an entire paragraph is devoted to what the air felt like on a summer night. I usually get through a kindle book in a few hours so this book feels restrictive to me. I will keep going and hope to come back and revise this review.
