    About Paul Kemprecos


    1. 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 fabulous 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 was working for a newspaper at the time I developed my own detective, an ex cop, diver, fisherman, and PI named Aristotle Soc Socarides He was 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 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 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 seventh Socarides book entitled, Grey Lady My wife 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.To learn about Paul Kemprecos, check out his website at paulkemprecos.

    1. Diving in the waters off Cape Cod features largely in this private eye story. This is the second in a series about an American man of ethnic Greek origin who fishes and works a few cases, and I had not read the first but found it easy to jump in to the setting. Underwater roving submersibles, wreck diving, a rumoured lost German submarine and the tensions and money behind marine equipment laboratory research fill the pages. This is a tightly plotted tale which starts as a missing person hunt and [...]

    2. #2 in the Aristotle "Soc" Socarides series. Aristotle "Soc" Socarides, a commercial fisherman and broke P.I is hired by wealthy and sinister Frederick Walther, whose daughter Leslie has disappeared. Soc seeks a lead on Leslie at the marine laboratory where she once worked, but her caustic, womanizing ex-boss and lover, Tom Drake, is murdered before Soc has a chance to question him. Emphasis shifts to Drake's research with remote-controlled undersea vehicles. Watery escapades ensue as Soc, Drake' [...]

    3. Neptune’s Eye is every bit as good as the first story in the series. Aristotle Socarides continues his somewhat meandering approach to life while at the same time delves into a missing person case.Just when I thought I had figured out the identity of the culprit, Paul throws another wrench into the story. As a result, Aristotle must follow new clues to bring his latest adventure to a satisfying conclusion despite various obstacles.In my humble opinion, Paul has created a fast-paced yet easy-to [...]

    6. Thoroughly enjoyable. The mystery was good even if it was a bit predictable in places. But there were several surprises and even a few "how will Soc ever get out this" moments. I like Soc even with all his faults or maybe it's because of his faults that I find him so engaging. Regardless, I will be reading the next book in the series. Recommended.

    7. I'm really enjoying this series. This time Soc is really involved with Woods Hole Oceanography Institute which I really enjoyed. I also liked the interaction with Flagg and hope he shows up again in the future. Good read.
