I Want a Sequel!
This reminded my of an Agatha Christie murder mystery: a “predictable set of charismatic characters in a closed environment” style whodunit.
I loved the two main characters and their relationship; I really got into it and rooted for them, in fact at times I cared more about them than I did for the mystery. I want a sequel surrounded on their lives!
I was impressed with the author’s description of life aboard the Lusitania; I want to read a non-fiction book about it now.
I read it all in one shot on a flight; it was a great diversion since my media-screen wasn’t working and I could not watch any movies!

Great historical mystery
Max Allan Collins has Done it again with Another wonderful historic mystery story, this time based on the sinking of the SS Lusitania in the early part of World War I. He inserts mystery writer SS Van Dine into the story and crafts a compelling and taut mystery. It’s a great story with excellent plot and characters.
