"Entertaining and Suspenseful! The author's writing is intelligent and has a literary quality I have not seen n a while---her mastery of word crafting captures your attention throughout the entire novel. This five day cruise with a writers award convention on board is a hotbed of jealousy, backstabbing, and murder. …couldn't put it down. The characters are all so different and interesting.  The plot is exciting and the setting beautifully done. I highly recommend this for a great read. A winner!!!


In this cozy mystery, cross the stormy Atlantic on a raucous and deadly awards cruise, as Hollywood film writers and world class authors race against time and death. In isolated international waters, fear grips the eccentric, competitive, and jealous group—from best selling heavyweights to amateur hangers-on. As bodies amass on the British five-star Queen Anne, an unlikely band of frantic mystery writers unite as amateur sleuths to stop the killings. Ignoring the dangers, aspiring novelist Veronica Kennicott leads their desperate battle against the drunken ship doctor's corporate cover-up of the crimes.
