"Arctic Adagio" eBook was published in 2019 and was written by DJ Cockburn ( This is Mr. Cockburn's second publication.

I categorize this novella as ‘PG’. Superintendent Rex Harme is providing security on a luxury cruise ship that is above the law. When one of the wealthy passengers goes overboard under suspicious conditions, he must begin thinking like a detective again. He has little time though as it is rumored that much of the crew, including him, will be let go as soon as the ship docks.

I found the 1.25 hours I spent reading this 55-page mystery/thriller interesting. I think better cover art could have been chosen. I give this novel a 3.8 (rounded up to a 4) out of 5.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher for an honest review.
Great twisty little mystery. Although short it was pack full of action. I loved Harme's character and would love to read more about him. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it was too short.
