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.
