Review

I thoroughly enjoyed the glamour of the ocean voyage, the warmth and wit among the friends, and yet all the time, simmering beneath the surface, was the real and savage violence, waiting to erupt. The 1930s are a marvelous period. We know what lies ahead! This is beautifully drawn, with all its fragile hope and looming tragedy. I am delighted this is a series. I want them all.--Anne Perry "New York Times best-selling author "

Author Sulari Gentill not only writes a fantastic mystery, but she offers up very interesting historical tidbits that readers will love to learn. It wouldn't be off the mark to say that if the great Agatha Christie read a Rowland Sinclair mystery, she would most definitely applaud.--Mary Lignor -Suspense Magazine -

Sulari Gentill has written a fun vintage mystery. Rowland Sinclair and his rather quirky friends set sail on the RMS Aquitania. I particularly enjoyed the glimpse into the pre-war history of Australia, and her enlistment of a few American movie stars to interact with her characters.--Melissa McDaniel -NetGalley -

I loved this book! Set on the lovely Art Deco design RMS Aquitainia, of the Cunard Line, in 1932. This voyage from Europe via New York, finally to Sydney, Australia had various characters including a clairvoyant and an Indian guru amongst the guests. Some time into the voyage the body of a Mr Urquhart is found in one of the lifeboats and so begins a who dunit that Agatha Christie would have been proud of! Great fun and very highly recommended.--Eileen Hall -NetGalley -

Product Description

Murder and Intrigue When High Society Meets the High Seas – A Gripping Historical Mystery 

The Second Book of the Acclaimed Rowland Sinclair Mysteries, the Historical Crime Series

The luxury liner, RMS Aquitania, embodies all that is gracious and refined, in a world gripped crisis and doubt. But elegant atmosphere on board is charged with tension. Civility remains… but how long will the peace hold when people start to die?

After months abroad, Rowland Sinclair and his companions begin their journey home on the ship. The heroes dine with a suffragette, a Bishop and a retired World Prophet. The Church encounters less orthodox religion in the Aquitania’s chandeliered ballroom, where men of God rub shoulders with mystics in dinner suits. Gentill’s razor-sharp voice draws these wonderfully diverse characters, and as the pressure rises, so too does a foreboding sense of intrigue.

As the bodies pile up, and Rowland unwittingly finds himself at the centre of it all again, can he unravel the mystery and stop these heinous crimes before he and his friends become victims themselves?

Gentill captures the readers interest and imagination from the first page in this superbly narrated and observed novel. A highly amusing adventure amidst the horrors of death and the bizarre nature of 1930s society.
