The pace was fast, interesting and this book had multiple lines to the story - which I liked.
It really was unlike anything I've read over the last 20 years - a real mix of all the good stuff - If you like mystery books you will like this. If you like sci fi you will like this. And I loved that the vocab wasn't dumbed down. Very pleased with this book and it was a FULL STORY - start to finish - but left enough character endings open to have a nice series start from this if the author is so moved. Looking forward to it.
Set on a luxury space-liner populated by the usual mix of humans and (in some cases highly improbable) aliens.
It is a murder mystery with a sub-plot or two and a bit of a twist at the end.
I spent a couple of hours being entertained by this story, although I was not inclined to seek out more by this author.
Not a bad tale, but not a fine one either.
Still, it is worth a read - if only once.
Sir Giles Thackery—renowned Terran detective—is defrosted from cyro-sleep to tackle one of his toughest cases to date. Ambassadors of the Galactic Guild are turning up dead in the most gruesome ways on board the luxury cruise liner, the Euripides. Accompanied only by his great—to the eighteenth generation—granddaughter, elite SLASP Agent, Nanette Thackery, Sir Giles rushes from one murder to the next, desperately seeking the answers to why. In the end, it all winds up in a friendly game of Squash to trap the culprit. The Galactic Guild watches on in anticipation as the seconds tick out before there is another victim.
