Loved it. the first of Jance's Beau books I read after having loved and read every one of her Joanna Brady books. Sure, he's middle-aged guy in Seattle instead of a young woman sheriff in Arizona, but once I got past the old fashioned narration (I had to think Thomas Magnum to avoid thinking Mike Hammer) I came to really care about this recovering alcoholic detective on a cruise with his long lost grandmother and his AA sponsor who's become his new step-grandfather.

Jance leaves the southwest behind on this variation on the "locked room" mystery. A murder on a cruise ship limits the suspects, but it also ensures that there's a killer roaming around loose.

Another who-done-it from Jance. This one on a cruise ship. A lot of twists and turns with a little romance thrown in. A good, easy read.
