Lady Arrington and the Dead Cavalier

A charming, cosy cruise ship mystery

A whodunit featuring a grande dame as the investigator and her more or less voluntary helpers who save her from disaster and ultimately catch the villain.

Best-selling author and affluent widow Mary Elizabeth Arrington has become a permanent passenger on the Queen Anne. She has rented out her manor house in Sussex in order to find inspiration for her new novel aboard the luxury liner. At home, she had been unable to put as much as a single word down on paper. Meanwhile, some time has elapsed since her last bestseller.

Instead of finding the perfect idea for a novel, however, she witnesses a passenger collapse and die on the dance floor during a masquerade ball - a heart attack, according to the ship’s doctor. It is only when the woman in a neighboring stateroom tells Mary she is concerned about her violent ex-husband being on board that the novel author’s suspicions are aroused. True to Miss Marple’s motto, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire,” and as a passionate reader of crime novels, Mary begins to investigate together with the resolute maid Sandra and Mary’s longtime editor from London.

Much to their dismay, the perpetrator and the captain, who will not tolerate any unrest on his ship, do not have a moment of peace once Mrs. Mary Arrington is on their scent.
And when a second murder takes place on the ship, Lady Arrington knwos she is getting dangerously close to the villain.
