“Undercurrents” is a suspense oriented novel based upon the real life architectural experience of the author. The story has a unique plot about an architect’s dreams of becoming world renowned for his works. The Miami architect is commissioned to design the world’s very first floating underwater restaurant and casino structure in Nassau, Bahamas. He then becomes scheduled for an interview appearance on the Today Show to present and reveal the model of his uniquely designed structure. Unfortunately, there was a tragic accident with the Structure soon after it was submerged below the water. His practice and his romances then have ongoing twists and turns. The plot thickens as the investigation leads to such questions regarding sabotoge?… Was there Mafia gaming ties between Las Vegas and The Bahamas ?… Was the architect’s female attorney and her father’s high gambling profile and senatorial political career in anyway connected to the accident ? Was the architect’s girlfriend accidently found to have some association with the Florida senator in a conspiracy?
