Product Description

About the Author

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. 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. After eight NUMA Files I went back to writing solo. I wrote an adventure book entitled, The Emerald Scepter, which introduced a new hero, Matinicus “Matt” Hawkins. I have been working on the re-release of my Soc series in digital and print, and in 2013, responding to numerous requests, I brought Soc back again in a ninth Socarides book entitled, Grey Lady. Christi and I live on Cape Cod where she works as a financial advisor. We live in a circa 1865 farmhouse with two cats. We have three children and seven granddaughters.

Have read the all one after the other as they are that addictive! What a well crafted storyline, with an amiable protagonist who becomes more and more believable. Read them! This was truly a find.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable 20 May 2013

The story is enticing and when it all came together the mind boggles. I will be looking for more from this author.
3.0 out of 5 stars Death In Deep Water 15 Feb. 2001
By barbararitaville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Aristotle 'Soc' Socarides, part-time fisherman, part-time private detective, is hired by the owners of Oceanus marine park to investigate the death of their much disliked whale trainor. The park's owners hope to exonerate suspected killer whale, Rocky, so the sale of the park to Japanese businessmen can proceed smoothly.
Within hours of accepting the case, Soc finds himself dealing with a fanatic animal rights group, being suspected of the murder of a former Oceanus employee, and employed undercover at Oceanus.
An overall enjoyable book with the exception of the author's attempt to inject humor via the use of numerous inane comparisons. The comparisons weren't funny and detracted from the otherwise solid read.
5.0 out of 5 stars a new Travis Mcgee 5 Dec. 2013
By Ron Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
very reminiscent of John D McDonalds Travis McGee style to me. I wish he would write some more of the Soc series instead of co writing with Clive Cussler ! It just feels real when I am reading the story and you know he has lived in this area from all of the local stuff he puts in.
4.0 out of 5 stars Best Soc book so far 6 Mar. 2014

Kemprecos seems to be getting it together, finally. The characters have evolved, the descriptive passages are better, less schoolpaper-like, the stories more interesting and suspenseful. But,#$%^, run a speel chcker on the Kindle verzhens.

I just stumbled on this series of books by Kemprecos. I am loving everyone I've read so far and I hope someone can convince him to write more. They are entertaining and "Soc" is a wonderful character with a unique personality and humor.
