The Somerton Man (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


It's 1948 and you can't help but feel there's more to life than waking up next to an empty bottle. You were close to something good - real close - but she walked out, and you're pretty sure she ain't coming back. The last thing you want to do is attend to the body of a middle-aged man found dead on Somerton beach, but when you do, there's a whole lot about the case that don't seem to add up. This is finally a chance for you - tough-talking Italian-American detective, Leonardo Moretti - to make a difference. Navigate your way through the weird and wonderful characters of New Jersey. Use your suspicious mind to solve puzzles and your razor-sharp tongue to weed out clues. Solve one of the greatest mysteries of all time. Who killed the Somerton Man? You decide.
