Descrizione prodotto

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/.

5.0 su 5 stelle Excellent, witty, intelligent, down-home mystery thriller. Highly recommend! 30 gennaio 2016
Di Kia Heavey - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I bought this book because I love suspense and because the description promised Hellenism and Cape Cod. (My dad's from Greece and my family has had second homes on the Cape the past three generations.) I was not disappointed – I totally loved all the references to Greek-American culture and the setting of Massachusetts' storied peninsula. The main character is fantastic too – A Greek-American wise-ass with enough intellectual heft and military skill to succeed at part-time sleuthing. The rest of the time he eeks out a living on a friend's fishing boat and spends it in watering holes. An intelligent college grad from a prosperous family, "Soc" is simply most at home among the "townies" on the Cape. His characters remind me of the locals where I live – indeed, the people who make up any town anywhere. I felt completely at home in Soc's world and I was submerged into this irresistible tale as quickly and completely as the ill-fated murder victim in the opening sequence.

I truly enjoyed this book! The author creates wonderful character and setting descriptions. Many reviews talk about being wordy but I think that makes the difference between a good book and an okay one. Great story, looking forward to reading the others in this series.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Mystery With Interesting Tidbits 9 febbraio 2014
Di LobsterCowboy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A P.I. mystery, set in Provincetown, Cape Cod , Mass. Aristotle 'Soc' Socarides is a Viet Nam vet, was on the Boston police force, left that, and became a mix of wharf bum, cod fisherman, and part time private eye, living in a boathouse on the water.

His Greek family lives a couple of hours away where they operate a very lucrative wholesale pizza business. What? You never heard of Greek pizza? Yeah, me neither. But what do I know, I'm from New York City, home of John's Pizza on Bleecker St. in the Village.

Great mystery, really excellent writing, characters who will amuse you, and a setting that will make you want to move to Cape Cod -- at least for three quarters of the year. I think we can forget about the winter season there. And some nice info on the salvage industry, and some interesting history tidbits as well. What more can a reader ask of a P.I. Mystery? Right?

There are five more books in the series, and if you like your P.I.'s more philosophical than hard-boiled, I recommend you check them out.

3.0 su 5 stelle A refreshing change from the big city, tough as nails PI novel 7 marzo 2014
Di David A. Freas - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The milieu – Cape Cod – and the character – ex-cop, fisherman, diver, PI – were a refreshing change from the usual big city, hard as nails private eye novel.

Aristotle ‘Soc’ Socarides, the main character, has a distinctive voice with some wry descriptions of people and places. And he’s not the usual tough guy PI, always spoiling for a fight and using brawn to conquer the bad guys. It’s refreshing to see a PI use his brains to get out of tight spots.

It took a while for this book to get going but once it started to roll, it rolled fast. Occasional scenes of ‘Soc’ interacting with his family gave the reader a chance to catch his breath.

There were lots of typographic and punctuation errors in this download.

This book wasn’t good enough to make me want to read more in the series, but I won’t pass them up if they come my way.

I think it started out slow but gained speed and had me hooked. The characters and the weave of suspense was very captivating. The ending was worth the read. I recommend this for those adventurous dreamers out there.
