A Dangerous Crossing

£9.99

Product description

Sparkling cocktails, poisonous secrets ... 1939, Europe on the brink of war. Lily Shepherd leaves England on an ocean liner for Australia, escaping her life of drudgery for new horizons. She is instantly seduced by the world onboard: cocktails, black-tie balls and beautiful sunsets. Suddenly, Lily finds herself mingling with people who would otherwise never give her the time of day. But soon she realizes her glamorous new friends are not what they seem. The rich and hedonistic Max and Eliza Campbell, mysterious and flirtatious Edward, and fascist George are all running away from tragedy and scandal even greater than her own. By the time the ship docks, two passengers are dead, war has been declared, and life will never be the same again. With its intoxicating mix of murder mystery and fateful love story, 'A Dangerous Crossing' is an enthralling novel in the great tradition of Agatha Christie and Patricia Highsmith.

Published 2017, hardback with dust cover, very good condition. Includes promotional postcard featuring the novel's front cover.
