Pathologist Dr. Toni Day is on a Caribbean Cruise vacation with her husband, Hal, her stepfather, Nigel, and her mother, Fiona. What begins as a lovely getaway soon takes a grisly turn. On their first night at sea, Toni’s awakened by what she believes was a scream. When nothing untoward happens, she decides to go up on the Lido deck with a book and wait to watch the sunrise. Instead of seeing a rising sun, she sees a falling body plummeting toward her from the automated sunroof!! With the body on deck and a head bouncing into the pool, Toni does what she does best…begin the search for clues for identity and cause of death.
Being aboard a ship owned and operated out of Britain, it helps immensely that Nigel is a former Scotland Yard detective. Using Nigel’s experience and connections as the means to getting the captain’s and crew’s cooperation, Toni is soon immersed in investigating not one, but multiple bodies and many possible suspects with plenty of reasons for committing murder. As she gets closer to the answers however, she’s getting into more dangerous territory and soon the ONLY people she can truly trust are Hal, Nigel and Fiona!!
The action begins with the first page and doesn’t slow down until the last page! For a reader who feels they’re good at figuring out “whodunit” long before the story ends, I challenge you to figure out the culprit(s)? responsible in this page-turning read!!
