Publisher's Summary

Crusty schoolteacher/sleuth Hildegarde Withers can't escape mysterious deaths, even on a trans-Atlantic crossing on an ocean liner. En route to England she spends part of her time (when not feeling queasy) sizing up her fellow passengers. Her intuition helps when passengers and crew start dropping over the side, or just dropping, period.

Convoluted.

Don't expect to listen to this mystery while doing anything else including driving. Modern sensibilities don't fit here.

Oh, that accent!

Another great Hildegarde Withers mystery - good story and characters. But the English accent was woeful. As much as I have come to appreciate Julie McKay's interpretation of the heroine, the accents she affected for the various English characters were excruciatingly bad. While they did not put me off liking the book overall, they did detract from the usual pleasure.
