A Fatal Crossing (Hardback)Tom Hindle (author)
Shipbound slayings and priceless paintings abound in Hindle's rollicking period detective drama set aboard the Endeavour.
November 1924. The Endeavour sets sail to New York with 2,000 passengers - and a killer - on board...
When an elderly gentleman is found dead at the foot of a staircase, ship's officer Timothy Birch is ready to declare it a tragic accident. But James Temple, a strong-minded Scotland Yard inspector, is certain there is more to this misfortune than meets the eye.
With just days remaining until they reach New York, and even Temple's purpose on board the Endeavour proving increasingly suspicious, Birch's search for the culprit is fraught with danger.
And all the while, the passengers continue to roam the ship with a killer in their midst...
