Product Description

Product Description

Murder on the Arctic Sea

Detective Dylan Scott thinks cruising well above the Arctic Circle in November is nothing short of madness. He has zero interest in seeing the elusive aurora borealis, but agrees to the Norwegian holiday to keep his wife and mother happy. At least the biggest problem he'll have to deal with is boredom. But that boredom quickly dissipates when the unpleasant elderly woman in the neighboring cabin is found dead.

Everyone thinks Hanna Larsen had a heart attack. Everyone except Dylan. Dylan is convinced there's a killer aboard the Midnight Sun—a killer who may strike again...

More About the Author

Shirley was born and raised in the Cotswolds, where her headmaster wrote on her school report--Shirley is content to dream her life away.

Years later--as an adult living in Cyprus--it dawned on her that this wasn't necessarily a bad thing and that fellow dreamers, in the guise of fiction writers, had been getting away with it for centuries.

A move to the Orkney island of Hoy followed and, during the twelve years she spent there, she wrote short stories as well as full-length romantic fiction for UK women's magazines.

She's now settled in Lancashire, where the Pennines provide the inspiration and setting for her popular mystery novels. She and her husband share their home with an ever-changing selection of deranged pets, who often insist on cameo roles in Shirley's novels.

When she isn't writing, Shirley loves reading (anything and everything), listening to live music, watching TV, eating chocolate and drinking whisky--though not necessarily at the same time. She's also a season ticket holder at Burnley Football Club and can often be seen in the biting wind and pouring rain cheering on her favourite team.

And she's still content to dream her life away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whodunit 28 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this I have read the other Dylan Scott books and like the characters, he's an ex-policeman who is now a private Investigater. In this one he goes on a cruise to see the northern lights with his wife,son and mother. The elderly lady in the cabin next to his dies which is put down to her age and heart problems but Dylan has his doubts.

After a few twists and turns the truth comes out. Well written and an enjoyable whodunit

3.0 out of 5 stars Text badly presented 15 July 2014
By Jan O
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this having just enjoyed Presumed Dead by the same author. I was rather disappointed with this story but that was partly due to the very poor way the text was presented in a narrow column, which often meant there were only two words to a line, and in double spacing.

I don't think I have ever read a worse book. Absolute drivel, badly written. I don't know why I carried on reading it but it is very short so didn't take long.

A somewhat complex books compared to others by the same author. Perhaps another book featuring the same detective might prove different
