An Aristotle 'Soc' Socarides mystery. Three centuries after Pilgrims set foot on Plymouth Rock, some Indians are still on the warpath. So when a workman is tomahawked to death, suspicion falls on Joe Quint, the Native American activist whose threats to hammer Plymouth Rock into gravel have cast him in the spotlight.
The murder case seems open and shut until Cape Cod fisherman-diver-detective 'Soc' Socarides is asked to investigate. Soc must run the gauntlet between a federal agent with blood in his eye and the militant Indian Warrior Society, dive into the deadly waters of a mysterious underwater cavern, expose a trade in illegal Native American artifiacts, and rescue a kidnapped hostage. But the worst is yet to come as the latest work by this Shamus Award-winning author comes to its explosive climax.
