Suspense | Mystery
A glamorous cruise on a luxurious ocean liner turns deadly
in the latest mystery from “Queen of Suspense” and #1 New
York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark.
Fleeing a disastrous and humiliating arrest of her
husband-to-be on the eve of their wedding, Celia Kilbride, a
gems and jewelry expert, hopes to escape from public
attention by lecturing on a brand-new cruise ship—the Queen
On board she meets eighty-six-year-old Lady Emily Haywood,
“Lady Em,” as she is known throughout the world. Immensely
wealthy, Lady Em is the owner of a priceless emerald
necklace that she intends to leave to the Smithsonian after
Three days out to sea Lady Em is found dead—and the necklace
is missing. Is it the work of her apparently devoted
assistant, Brenda Martin, or her lawyer-executor, Roger
Pearson, and his wife, Yvonne, both of whom she had invited
to join them on the cruise? Or is it Professor Henry
Longworth, an acclaimed Shakespeare scholar who is lecturing
on board? Or Alan Davidson, a guest on the ship who is
planning to spread his wife’s ashes at sea? The list of
suspects is large and growing.
Celia, with the help of her new friends Willy and Alvirah
Meehan, who are celebrating their forty-fifth wedding
anniversary, sets out to find the killer, not realizing that
she has put herself in mortal danger before the ship reaches
its final destination.
Never, in all her long career as a #1 bestselling suspense
novelist, has Mary Higgins Clark been in better form.
