Overview

Small-town detective/workaholic, Manny Williams, is thrilled with the prospect of finally taking the long-awaited vacation he had promised his wife, Louise.

The couple's exotic getaway begins in sunny San Juan, Puerto Rico, by attending the June wedding of a fellow Lansing police officer, followed with an incredible week-long Southern Caribbean cruise on the glamorous Ocean Duchess. Tropical paradise appears to be a perfect recipe for desperately needed R and R...until the first dead body.

A bizarre, seemingly random murder in their posh San Juan Hotel, and the heinous cruise ship deaths of two of Lansing's law enforcement family, brings Manny, and his unique skills, out of cruise mode and head-long into the FBI-led investigation. Manny soon discovers that in this killer's twisted perception nothing is off limits, prompting a race against time that could cost him everything.

If you like edge-of-your-seat thrillers laced with humor, you'll love this!

Caribbean Moon:

"A new standard has been set for thrillers. In Rick Murcer's debut novel, Caribbean Moon, he's mixed the perfect ingredients to lock in readers, starting with the opening witty banter between Manny and Sophie. From there, the book takes off like a run-away roller coaster. Murcer knows just when to slow the pace and when to hit the gas. He's created a twisted mystery, with infectious characters and an unfathomable ending. Manny Williams might be the new Jedi of investigators, and Murcer is a Spielberg-like creative powerhouse. Caribbean Moon is absolutely magnetic!"
John W. Mefford, Best-selling suspense author of COMMITTED

Editorial Reviews

Cheryl Fox
Engaging characters and the story is first rate. Unique storyteller. I loved the chemistry between Manny and his partner, Sophie. I laughed out loud several times and shook in my boots at the same time. Fast read. A real page turner. Keeps you guessing. Amazing twist at the end.
It was a pleasure to read a crime thriller where the cop was more concerned with solving the crime than sleeping with every woman in the Caribbean. A cop who loves his wife. How refreshing!

    Carribean Moon is wtritten in a gritty, raw, cop-speak fashion and I thoroughly enjoyed Mr. Murcer's style of writing. Manfred (Manny) Williams is our hero, a hard-working, dedicated, obsessed detective who has more trouble letting the job go when on vacation than he has wearing a bowtie (which annoys him a great deal). A detective for eleven years, Manny has built his reputation for being a good cop and great detective who uses intuition as well as trivial clues that lead to arrests. In Carribean Moon, Manny and his wife join with several other couples to celebrate the marriage of one of their friends’ son and a cruise around the Carribean. Should be paradise, right? Manny and his wife, Louise, are determined to relax and enjoy the cruise in order to strengthen their bond and forget about the results of Louis’s last mammogram. They would get back to everyday life, cop work, and doctor’s appointments after the cruise.
    But it is not meant to be as Manny is pulled into a brutal murder case that seems to have ties to a case from his past and a criminal he thought was behind him but now seemed to be a prime suspect in the recent deaths. Manny and his fellow police officers must put aside their excursion to hunt down a killer hiding among the passengers of the cruise ship, haunting them every step of the way, always seeming to be ahead of them no matter how hard they tried.
    The story is riveting and compelling, twisting and heart-breaking as Manny tries to protect his friends and the woman he holds most dear from a maniac that seems to have evolved into a world-class monster.
    Rick Murcer will take you along for the thrill ride of a lifetime and leave you wondering who, what, where, and how will the killer be stopped. I recommend picking up this first in the Manny Williams series. I know I will continue reading Mr. Murcer’s books.
