Join the crew and passengers aboard the Coral Queen for another exciting adventure at sea!

A Rachel Prince MysteryKiller Cruise, book 3 in the Rachel Prince mystery series. Crew aboard the fictional Coral Queen find themselves stretched to the limit by the antics of a Queen tribute act, a troublesome stag party and a group of excitable female cheerleaders.

PC Rachel Prince, cruise ship sleuth is wondering if she will ever enjoy a peaceful voyage when an unpopular man dies under suspicious circumstances.

After agreeing to accompany Lady Marjorie Snellthorpe on a cruise around the Baltics, Rachel and Marjorie find themselves surrounded by an array of suspicious characters with plenty of motive for killing the despised victim. The man’s death was unlikely to be an accident according to the chief of security, and Lady Snellthorpe is keen to test her sleuthing skills.

Sarah, cruise ship nurse and Rachel’s best friend is keen to keep Rachel out of harms way as is Chief Waverley but it’s a case of the irresistible force meets the immovable object when there’s a mystery to be solved. Spurred on by the incorrigible Marjorie who is keen to interfere, Waverley and Sarah find themselves out of their depth.

As the man appeared to have more enemies than friends, the mystery tests Rachel to the limit. She finds herself in danger as she tries to keep Lady Marjorie safe while solving the crime.

This book should come with a ‘can’t put down’ health warning! Editorial Review.
