Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The year is 1921. A passionate affair between a romantic woman and her dentist has led to his wife's murder. The lovers take flight aboard the Mauretania and the dentist takes the name of Inspector Dew, the detective who arrested the notorious Dr. Crippen. But, in a disquieting twist, when a murder occurs aboard ship the captain invites "Inspector Dew" to nvestigate. This ingeniously plotted mystery won Lovesey the CWA Gold Dagger.

Review:

"All contemporary fans of mystery novels should be familiar with the name of Peter Lovesey. He is the creator of Sergeant Detective Cribb, the Victorian sleuth who has stalked murderers in seamy athletic arenas as well as down the Thames. Here Lovesey turns his attention to the 1920's and brilliantly creates a story of intrigue and suspense aboard the luxury ocean liner Mauretania. The plot is ingenious and complex. The characters are carefully crafted. The story's resolution is delightfully surprising. Another Lovesey success." Reviewed by Andrew Witmer, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
