A body in the lift, a stolen handbag and a break-in
Amanda’s hopes of an enjoyable, relaxing cruise are dashed when she finds a body in one of the lifts. The captain and his staff appear to be treating the woman’s death as a heart attack, but Amanda is far from convinced. It doesn’t help that the dead woman appeared to have upset everyone with whom she came in contact, but is that sufficient grounds for wanting her dead?
The questions keep coming. Who stole the victim’s handbag? Why did someone break into her cabin? Who is the mysterious Mr Brown Suit?
With a ship full of suspects, this is as a much as a whydunit as a whodunnit. This is the first in a new series of British cozy crime novels set on a cruise ship by the author of the popular Fiona Mason Mysteries and the Aunt Jessica Mysteries. There’s a touch of humour with plenty of unexpected twists and red herrings that will keep you trying to solve the puzzles until the last page.
