This is the first in a series of books written by Conrad Allen, a pseudonym used by Keith Miles. You may know him already by another pseudonym, that of Edward Marston, which he uses for many popular series, including that of the Railway Detective mysteries. This series features George Porter Dillman and the enigmatic and beautiful Genevieve Masefield and all are set aboard cruise ships in the heyday of the great liners. In order, the books are as follows:
1. Murder on the Lusitania (1999)
2. Murder On the Mauretania (2000)
3. Murder On the Minnesota (2002)
4. Murder on the Caronia (2002)
5. Murder on the Marmora (2004)
6. Murder on the Salsette (2005)
7. Murder on the Oceanic (2006)
8. Murder on the Celtic (2007)
It is good to see these books now on kindle and I looked forward to re-reading this mystery, which I had not read for many years. It is September, 1907 and the Lusitania is sailing her maiden voyage to New York. This novel introduces American George Porter Dillman, a detective who is usually called upon to keep an eye on professional card sharps, or some thieving. However, this voyage offers more than the usual excitement - and romance. From the time Dillman boards the train from Euston to Liverpool, Lime Street, he feels that things are not right. He is intrigued by Mr and Mrs Rymer, whose daughter Violet seems sad and listless for such an exciting event as a trip on such a wonderful liner and is further concerned about the oily journalist Henry Barcroft, who bothers the passengers and crew alike. When there is murder onboard, his detective skills are put to the test.
This is a cosy mystery, with a touch of romance and the bonus of the shipboard location. If you enjoy this kind of story, then I am sure you will like this series and, in my opinion, it is best to start with the first book where the two main characters first meet.
