This was recommended to me by a coworker and did not disappoint. The storyline is entertaining with a look back to life in a more glamorous era aboard a cruise ship. The main characters have plotted the death of his spouse and an escape to America from England. They snatched the idea from a true tale and the career of the renowned Inspector Dew of Scotland Yard. There are several twists and turns and much "deviosity" throughout.There are shipboard romances, unexpected murder and vintage Lovesey dialogue. It is fun and smart and oh so much fun to read. Give it a try.
