Murder on the Orient (SS): The Agatha Christie Book Club 2

by Christina A. Larmer

IN her best-selling whodunnit THE AGATHA CHRISTIE BOOK CLUB, C.A. Larmer introduced the motley collection of crime buffs who channel their inner Miss Marple to help solve real-life mysteries. Now the good friends are back in the much-anticipated sequel…

WHEN the Agatha Christie Book Club takes a short cruise on a replica steamship, the SS Orient—a real ship that once sailed between London and the colonies—they expect little more than a glamorous voyage back in time. What they get has eerie echoes of the original Orient Express, including a passenger dead in their bed, a threatening note and more clues than you can poke a blood-soaked dagger at.

When a second passenger vanishes overboard in the dead of night soon after, the team suspect they have a madman on their hands and abandon their shuffleboard to investigate.

The problem is, just like Hercule Poirot, they have very little time, no CCTV, and enough red herrings to fill a seafood buffet. It doesn’t help that the entire ship is rallying behind the leading suspect Captain Van Tussi, a man with friends in high places who may—or may not—be taking everyone for a ride.

Jump aboard for the latest adventure of the Agatha Christie Book Club, a beloved group of friends who include devoted sisters Alicia and Lynette, poisons expert Dr Anders, ditzy librarian Missy, paleontologist Perry and vintage queen Claire. This time there’s a new member lurking in the wings—can you guess who it will be?
