A suicide note found in a locked room. A shard of glass buried in a scoop of whipped potatoes. A pickle jar filled with poisonous spiders. Precious jewels yanked off of a woman's neck but left at her feet. It's just a week in the life of Damon Lassard when he boards The Vitamin of the Seas with his charismatic mother for a 'relaxing' Caribbean cruise. After Damon's acerbic dining companion is found floating alongside the ship and local police rule the death a suicide, the loveable amateur sleuth is left to find the killer himself. He encounters seductive sirens, cunning con artists, and fascinating family members en route to solving not only the murder but a handful of clever capers as well.
