So when a stroll along the deck leads to the discovery of a dead crew member, the middle-aged woman stands her ground and claims foul play.
With the ship’s brand new company desperate to avoid scandal, she agrees to work with a brash young detective to quietly crack the case. But with rumors of a vicious guerrilla group on board and Miss Riddell suspicious of the victim’s real identity, solving this riddle might be the last thing she does.
