Darcy Kieran's neo-noir novels always have a scuba diving flavor somewhere in the story, although not always at the forefront.
We cannot be underwater all the time — but we can always pretend to be!
Darcy Kieran's first 2 novels with a taste of scuba diving:
Mystery of The Blue Dragon
"Mystery of The Blue Dragon: A Neo-Noir Dive Into Crime, Passion, and The Abyss" is a crime saga with a heavy dose of romance, drama, intrigue, and scuba diving.
When a chance encounter with a DEA agent leads dive instructor Nollaig and computer hacker Sierra into a dangerous double life of scuba diving and cybercrime in a mission to take down a shady drug & gun-smuggling operation, they must face their personal demons and fight against a corrupt system to save their own life and accept that adversity can be a door to a better future.
Nollaig is a scuba diving instructor trainer with successful dive businesses in Miami and Key Largo, Florida. But when he meets Lucy, an undercover DEA agent, his life is changed forever. As they become entangled in a dangerous mission to take down a drug & gun smuggling ring with help from hacker Sierra, Nollaig's world is thrown into chaos. Forced to flee Miami, Nollaig and Sierra will eventually find refuge on a tropical island, working as divemasters with fake IDs while fighting against bad capitalism, corrupt governments & unsafe dive operators. But the consequences of their mission still linger, and they must come to terms with their past in order to move forward.
"Shadows on Ocean Drive" is a neo-noir crime novel with elements of thriller, mystery, drama, and romance added to a unique scuba diving component.
When framed for a devastating building collapse, an engineer-turned-Uber driver must join forces with a mysterious runaway as they attempt to take down an insidious criminal syndicate and find safety in the depths of the sea.
"Noir" is not for everybody. It's mostly an acquired taste.
