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.
