An Amazon international best-seller. A thoroughly modern take on a classic mystery genre.
The Agatha Christie Book Club is back, this time on a nostalgic cruise aboard the SS Orient, a replica steamship which has eerie echoes of a certain train journey—a threatening note, a dead body in a cabin, and a passenger missing overboard. With no CCTV, a shipful of shifty passengers, and more red herrings than a seafood platter, the book club friends must do a Poirot and find the right solution before journey's end. The ship berths in 24 hours and a murderer may walk the plank.
With a dash of romance, a splash of adventure and plenty of laughs, this is one journey you really don't want to miss by the acclaimed international mystery author C.A. Larmer.
This book follows British English spelling and usage, and contains some Australian slang.
Clean read: no graphic violence, sex, or strong language.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Second in the Agatha Christie Book Club series which takes place on a cruise between Sydney and New Zealand. While still a very good story with lots of twists and turns, I didn't find it quite as good as the first book. It was confusing as there were just so many characters and twists. The Prologue really grabs your interest but then it falls a bit flat until the ending. Overall, still a good read. It kept me interested enough to want to read the next book in the series.
