“The SS Orient, kiddoes! It’s a sign from Dame Christie herself!”
Missy Corner, Murder on the Orient (SS)
The Agatha Christie Book Club is back, this time on a nostalgic cruise aboard the SS Orient, a replica steamship which has more in common with a certain train journey than even Alicia Finlay could have imagined. First a dead body shows up in one cabin, then a powerful figure receives a threatening note before being tossed overboard in the dead of night. When a third passenger is found stabbed in the back, the book club have no time to lose. The ship berths in less than 24 hours and a murderer may walk free.
With no CCTV to help, a shipful of shifty passengers, and more red herrings than a seafood platter, the book club friends must do a Poirot and find the right solution before journey's end.
With a dash of romance, a splash of adventure and a whole lot of laughs, this is one journey you really don't want to miss by the acclaimed international mystery author C.A. Larmer.
