The God in the Sea

(The ninth book in the Aristotle Socarides series)
A novel by

The winter job as mate aboard a charter boat in the Florida Keys was going to be a financial boon for fisherman-diver and private detective Aristotle “Soc” Socarides. But The Fates who spin the threads of destiny had woven Soc’s life into a tapestry of their own design.

Soc may have to sell his own boat, the
Thalassa II, to avoid a family break-up that could jeopardize the Socarides frozen Greek food business. The last thing he needs is to find himself in the sights of an international crime syndicate after he plays Good Samaritan to his secretive pal John Flagg. On top of that, old war buddy and Provincetown fisherman Joe Bones has netted an ancient trident he suspects may have broken off a statue on the bottom of Cape Cod Bay, and he wants Soc to prove his theory.
It seems like the perfect set-up. Soc can go into hiding in the artsy old fishing village and at the same time, repay Joe for saving his life in combat. The task looks straightforward: see what lies below the surface of the bay. But it doesn’t take long before Soc is swimming in a sea of troubles with the water level on the rise.

He’ll need the help of a gentle giant named Tinkerbelle to solve the bizarre murder of an expert on Alexander the Great while he seeks the truth behind a legendary treasure at the center of a feud going back thousands of years. He’ll meet an antiquities connoisseur who came off second best in an encounter with Medusa. He’ll be intrigued by the wealthy collector’s mysterious assistant, whose beauty is surpassed by her deviousness.

And he’ll lead a chase through the rolling dunes, join in a battle on the high seas and play hide and seek on a whale watch boat. But before he can claw a safe foothold in the sandy shores of Cape Cod, Soc must learn a hard lesson: never disturb the slumber of Poseidon, the bad-tempered God in the Sea.
