Kurzbeschreibung

When the world’s most famous explorer is murdered at the Smithsonian, it’s up to a cynical Washington detective to solve the case.

Bob Fundwell dies in the Smithsonian’s Ocean Hall when the life-size replica of a whale falls from the ceiling and crushes him.

A veteran black investigator, Detective Thomas, is assigned the case. He’s witnessed two decades of bloody mayhem on the streets of our nation’s capital.

The list of suspects is long, for the victim was arrogant and reviled. Fundwell discovered the Gigantic, a legendary ocean liner that sank in the Atlantic after hitting an iceberg. He became rich and famous by falsely claiming the work of his colleagues.

As Thomas investigates the case, he is lied to by people at all levels – from housing projects to the Supreme Court. Deceit is the one constant in a Washington on the eve of the 2008 election. Yet, he presses on, determined to find justice and prove that the city has changed since its days as the murder capital of the country.

Murder in Ocean Hall is inspired by true events, including the real-life controversy over the discovery of the Titanic, as well as the author's two decades in Washington, DC. This fact-based murder mystery takes you behind the scenes of our nation's dysfunctional capital, revealing the real city beyond the monuments.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Time well spent 11. Oktober 2012
Von Prophet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The time spent reading "Murder in Ocean Hall" is time well spent. I feel disinclined to share what the story is all about. Ostensibly it's a murder mystery, but that doesn't explain the half of it. Having hinted that there are numerous fish-to-fry in this story, suffice to say that the important characters are exceedingly well developed, and the various personalities are communicated with unusual sensitivity and with an obvious intention on the part of the author to illuminate the frustrations of what it's like to be an educated, thoughtful, and productive black person living in D.C. With of course a modest detour into some of the local political chicanery as it's thrown into the mix. As well there is even if only a hint, a small reflection on the ever present, and in this case questionable, but in the end accepted, Congressional political influence. What would a book set in D.C. be without at least some political flavor?

Quite aside from the murder mystery, one can't help but come away with an enormously better understanding of the often disheartening plight of many an everyday citizen of the city. The insight regarding the nation's capitol comes from an entirely different direction than one might expect. It really points up at least a good part of the "why" of some of the antipathy in the minds and hearts of the majority of the citizens regarding their attitudes towards those who work in the city, but rush off to the suburbs every evening.

The effective duality of the book, wherein the murder investigation, mostly with grim determination, plods right along, while at the same time, on a parallel path, a wealth of really clarifying insight about the area and the people who live there is offered up for the reader to chew on.

Very nicely done, and without question worth five stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read this book if 8. Juli 2010
Von Stephen J Torda III - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Read this book if you think you've been to Washington,DC. The author, Joe Flood, will take you behind the scenes of places you've been and tell you how they function then give you insights into people in power and how they fail to function.

Joe Flood,in addition to being publishd in the Washington Post and literary journals,is an award-winning photographer. For over 20 years he has captured the beauty and the grime with film of the Washington area. Now he captures it in the written word with his first novel.

It is of course a whodunit which is my favorite genre. I enjoyed reading and guessing and didn't even mind being wrong,which I was,about the murderer. It was also a "howdunit" with some good research on the author's part.

The victim, Bob Fundwell, was so despicable one wonders if there's such a thing as justifiable murder.

There was of course the mandatory touching love lost and comforting love found which was nicely woven into the story.

It was an OK read, but very descriptive in a lot of parts. I know that most police work goes on this way, but a little boring to a reader how it dragged on sometimes.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book 10. März 2013

Very well done. Good writing, good story, and great insight into the nation's Capitol. Not sure Ballard enjoyed it though.

Looking forward to more from this writer.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Titanic references obvious 4. Oktober 2014
Von David Morris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Murder in Ocean Hall gives us a person who needed killing and got it. I actually wouldn't have minded if the killer had gotten away with it. But that isn't the point is it? So about the book itself.

We got the idea early the detective was black. I don't know why the author felt he needed to harp on it. Or why if he was harping on it, he didn't hit it harder. I thought the whole "I'm black, poor me" was pretty weak. And after the crime was solved there was so much filler used to extend the book.

Still, the crime itself was unique and well presented, along with the steps taken to solve the crime. Overall, I could recommend the book to anyone that wants an uncomplicated read. No obvious grammar or spelling mistakes which often plague Kindle books.
