Book Description

Walking the decks of the doomed cruise liner The Eternal Virgin are impostors, assassins, innocents, and a few who can claim to more than one. Recent college graduate and trained killer Amynta Farce is a little of all three, and between the Farce, Marshall, and Wakefield families aboard, tensions and confusion peak as the passengers learn that no one, even those closest to them, are who they claim to be.

After meeting a mysterious waiter on the Virgin’s decks, Amynta sets a sinister chain of reveals into motion that unfold as fast as a supposedly sturdy boat can sink.

Through their manic attempts to find the truth onboard and around the globe, the three families discover that their home-spun farce is just as dark as it is entertaining. Narrated by an undisclosed but occasionally well-informed journalist, the account of the would-be killers spans the bounds of the globe and the reader's capacity for fun (with a side of blood, of course).

Featuring a ruined affair, a chase across the world, and the return of the harpoon gun as a viable murder weapon, Farce has something for the adventurous, romantic, and humorous.

I have been a fan of Jamie Loftus's past work, and have ceaslessly been amazed by her short non-fiction peices. Farce is sure to be amazing - a great beach read, I'd suspect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless November 24, 2013

When you read this book, you will be nothing short of astonished when you learn that it was independently published by the author when she was nineteen years old and balancing college work. "Farce" is incredible, and its delightful amalgamation of mystery, humor, romance, and suspense will delight all that read it. It's cheap, it's wireless, and it's damn good. There is no reason not to buy it. SO BUY IT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great success July 19, 2012
By Steve

This book is a wonderful blend of comedy and action. It has a "Kill Bill"-like attitude, but with a much more intriguing plot. It has many twists and turns to keep readers on their toes. The language is advanced, but not so much that you feel dumb reading it. The narration is very interesting, and I think readers will find it quite surprising how the story is told. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a captivating story with a little bit of everything.
