Neptune's Eye (Aristotle Socarides series Book 2)
“Kemprecos . . . writes sharp, readable prose and certainly knows how to paint a portrait of the Boston/Cape Cod environs.”
“Absorbing . . . Soc is an appealing, witty protagonist and the Cape Cod locale is rendered with panache in this fast-paced enjoyable yarn.”
Underwater Underhandedness . . .
A simple missing-persons case: Find Frederick Walther’s beautiful young daughter, who disappeared after a love affair turned sour. Simple, that is, until Leslie Walther’s lover turns up dead in a fishy place—the seal pool at the Woods Hole aquarium. Part-time fisherman—part-time private eye “Soc” Socarides finds the highly loathsome Tom Drake had a number of acquaintances, business rivals, ex-lovers, and an ex-wife—all with reason to want him dead.
Soc’s investigation turns up so many knotted threads he could make a fishnet: a long-lost German U-boat, a cutting-edge underwater vehicle, corporate espionage, a shady munitions dealer, and a CIA spook from Soc’s distant past. Soc hopes the net will snare a murderer. But if he makes one wrong move, it could drag him down to a cold, wet, silent grave.
