Product Description

Product Description

When that pesky Icelandic volcano blows its top, everyone's travel plans take a hit. And when there's a death on the ocean wave, Detective Inspector Andy Constable and his colleague Sergeant Dave Copper find themselves in the same boat - the brand new cruise liner 'Empress of the Oceans'.
But which of the ship's celebrity passengers has been the victim of the poison pen of murdered investigative journalist Ira Veal? Did lifestyle guru Anita Holm mess up in the past? Has stock market trader Baxter D. Wall got more than his share of troubles? Or did widowed TV evangelist Pastor Best provoke an unholy row?
Our detectives soon discover that murder knows no frontiers, and some guilty secrets refuse to be buried at sea.

More About the Author

Roger Keevil was born and educated in Southampton, U.K., and has earned his living in a variety of jobs, from sales promotion in exports for an international electronics company, working in an advertising agency, and managing a restaurant, through to running a theatrical wig supply business.

He moved to Spain in 2006 and, with his partner, wrote and performed a series of dinner theatre murder mysteries along the Costa Blanca, eventually deciding to develop one of his stories into his first full-length novel, 'Feted to Die' (now re-titled 'Murderer's Fete' as an e-book). Returning to the U.K. in 2009, he published the second Inspector Constable mystery, 'Juan Foot In The Grave' (e-book version later re-titled 'Murder Unearthed') in 2012, drawing on his experiences in Spain to tell the tale of the murder of a Spanish builder. In August 2013, he launched Inspector Constable's third investigation - 'Death Sails In The Sunset' - set aboard a cruise ship. He is now working on the fourth book, 'Murder Comes To Call', in which Constable and Copper will tackle three very different cases.

When not writing, Roger enjoys participating in amateur theatre and travelling, and has appeared in numerous television quiz programmes, including 'Fifteen-to-One', 'The Chase', and two BBC1 Saturday night National Lottery shows. Off-screen, he has been tracing his family roots, and is proud to be able to trace his ancestry back to the Royal House of Wessex in one direction, and less proud to be linked to a highly disreputable pirate in another.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good enjoyable read 20 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Modern lighthearted Agatha Cristie type detective story set on a cruise ship. Easy and fun to read and I could dip in and out if I wanted to. I didnt and I sat and finished it this morning all in one go ; believable suspects with loads of clues and it kept me guessing to the end. I cant wait till the next book this summer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant 10 Dec 2013
By Elaine Tomasso TOP 1000 REVIEWER

I liked Mr Keevil's two previous novels which were modern cozies but funny with it. This one follows on from Juan Foot In The Grave with our two intrepid detectives cruising home because their flight was cancelled due to Icelandic volcano activity and finding murder most foul aboard ship. As usual there is a plethora of suspects with punning names (the victim, a tabloid reporter, is called Ira Veal) and no alibis but Inspector Constable manages to figure it out with the denouement in true Golden Age style - all suspects round a dining room table, motives revealed and the murderer unmasked. I didn't find this one as funny as the others but it is a good read as Mr Keevil has a friendly style of writing and great dialogue which really draws you in. It is easy to see the suspects' secrets but impossible to guess whodunit so you have to keep reading. This is a good way to pass a few undemanding hours and I recommend this as pleasant escapism.

Story worth reading but character names made the whole thing messy....it seemed like a comedy with names like Inspector Constable and Sergent Copper, and how about Sally Forth ( going forth) and Pastor Best (past her best) also Derek crane ( Derrick crane). I see this writer has a number of volumes to his credit.........don't think I will bother with any more.
