Atlantic Ocean, 1926: Voyaging from Southampton to New York, self-reliant Jane is determined to prove herself a worthy investigator on the stately ship—even awkwardly going undercover as the fashionable wife of her magnetic partner, Mr. Redvers. Few details are known about the rumored German spy the duo have been tasked with identifying among fellow passengers, but new troubles unfold once wealthy newlywed Vanessa FitzSimmons announces the sudden disappearance of her husband at sea…
Miles Van de Meter, the man Vanessa rushed to marry in Monte Carlo, has allegedly vanished into thin air along with his luggage. Redvers guesses the shifty heiress may be weaving tall tales for fun between flutes of champagne, yet Jane isn’t convinced—not after the stunning murder of a trusted acquaintance sends them into uncharted waters. Facing two dangerous mysteries and a boat load of suspects, Jane must navigate a claustrophobic quest for answers before the culprits can slip from her grasp on land…or, worse, ensure she and Redvers never reach their destination.

A delightful and entertaining murder mystery set on the high seas between Europe and NYC at the tail-end end of the Roaring Twenties where a masterfully choreographed but rather evil game of cat & mouse is being played between some potential German spies & a glamorous Anglo-American couple employed by the British government to unmasked them on board a very sparkling ocean liner. A very sophisticated romp full of witty dialogues, gorgeous fashions and lots of delicious cocktails.... Cleverly plotted with enough twists & turns to keep you on the edge of your seat and blessed with a cast of unforgettable characters, this delicious whodunit can also be viewed as a glittering comedy of manners spiked with lots of adrenaline-fueled moments...
A highly recommended read if you enjoy old fashioned murder mysteries set before WWII 👍
Many thanks to Netgalley and Kensington Books for this terrific ARC
This is a different type of read to than what I usually read, but I love reading books that have a Titanic vibe to them and I felt this one was incredibly gripping and interesting. I definitely enjoyed it and would love to read books similar to this in the future as well as by this author.
In Agatha Award-winning author Erica Ruth Neubauer’s third wanderlust-inspiring historical mystery, young American widow Jane Wunderly, there are worse fates than adventuring aboard a transatlantic liner with the only man who could change her mind about romance. Unfortunately, her first-class itinerary has an unexpected—and deadly—addition waiting just below deck…
Nothing like a good story set aboard an ocean liner with some mystery to boot!
Wonderful characters and an awesome plot!
Told from Jane's point of view (my favorite thing because I can relate to the character more), I was glued to the book until I finished it.
So many twists and turns! Oh my!
This story had me guessing right up until the end!
I'll have to go back read her other novels as this a new to me author.
I highly recommend this book.
My thanks for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
