Well, Paul Kemprecos took this style of writing to a whole different level. Most books attempt to provide descriptive phrases in the beginning and then it is left behind and the author just tells his/her story. Not so with Paul Kemprecos. Not only are his descriptive phrases throughout the book but they are so long winded that they became boring and irritating. I swear one such phrase went on for half a page. I got to the point where I would just skip down a paragraph, or so, and continue from there.
Too much descriptive phrasing aside, the story was very slow and not very exciting. This book will not keep you up at night. I liked the premise of a treasure hunt but I could not get into the character of the detective, his Greek family and his lifestyle. It did take me a while to figure out the ending and that alone kept me going.
I see he has other books in this series. I don't think I will be reading any of them unless I run out of my favorite authors. I really don't see what Clive Cussler saw in this book to offer him a job writing for him. Maybe Mr. Cussler read all the books in the series and the others are much better than this one.
I also see a lot of 5 star reviews. I would be skeptical of a new authors 5 star reviews. You would be surprised how many family members and social friends will give a new author 5 stars just to help him out. I'm not saying this has happened here, to this author, but I know firsthand it does happen.
Aristotle ‘Soc’ Socarides, the main character, has a distinctive voice with some wry descriptions of people and places. And he’s not the usual tough guy PI, always spoiling for a fight and using brawn to conquer the bad guys. It’s refreshing to see a PI use his brains to get out of tight spots.
It took a while for this book to get going but once it started to roll, it rolled fast. Occasional scenes of ‘Soc’ interacting with his family gave the reader a chance to catch his breath.
There were lots of typographic and punctuation errors in this download.
This book wasn’t good enough to make me want to read more in the series, but I won’t pass them up if they come my way.
