Overview

A luxurious trans-atlantic liner, Empress of Britain is making her eastward passage back to England in 1931. Among he first-class passengers are two English confidence tricksters who have left ill deeds in their wake. As luck would have it, they find fresh prey in the person of the wealthy Miss Charnwood and her beautiful niece Diana. The plan of action is nothing they haven't tried before with considerable success, but who could imagine they would let their hearts take over at the most inopportune time—leading then far too deep into an increasingly troubling and dark maze.

Readers will find more than one strange echo of more recent times—notable in the Robert Maxwell story—in this riveting new novel.

My least favorite. Maybe I'll read it again.

Set in the early part of the 20th century, mainly on a ship, it features two con artists who try to scam a fortune out of a beautiful young heiress. They soon find themselves way out of their depth, suddenly in the middle of events they don't understand, a typical Goddard scenario.

First Robert Goddard novel I've read. Set in the early part of the 20th century, it features two con artists who try to scam a fortune out of a beautiful young heiress. They soon find themselves way out of their depth, suddenly in the middle of events they don't understand.A really well read thriller, a true page turner and interesting storyline.

Aboard a luxury liner returning to Europe are two confidence tricksters escaping from possible arrest and imprisonment in America. They are presented with a new target, Diana, the only daughter of a very rich man. The idea is to woo the victim and persuade her to become engaged to one of them, expecting her father to buy him off. They will then share the proceeds. This scheme has worked before what can go wrong? Well, in a Robert Goddard novel everything. They stumble on mystery and murder. As with all Goddard's work one must be prepared to read it through at one sitting it is so hard to put down.
