Cruising for Murder

(2000)
(The second book in the Morgan Taylor Mystery series)
A novel by

 
Murder on the high seas is not the 'gig' actress Morgan Taylor signed up for. She was stoically suffering through one of Chicago's coldest winters when her old theater friend called begging Morgan to fill in for a cast member aboard a cruise ship. Morgan weighs her choices: Let's see -- blinding blizzards and bitter cold, or palm trees and sun-drenched sand? Hmmmmm. Morgan hops the next plane to the Port of Miami.

Onboard ship, Morgan learns the girl she's replacing died 'suddenly'. "Murdered," whisper some. And between rehearsals, wardrobe fittings and performances, Morgan feels her own safety threatened. Not everyone, it seems, is happy she joined the cast. Then another performer goes missing and this time there is no question the girl was murdered.

"Sussman and Avidon deliver an amazingly fresh and entertaining puzzle sure to have mystery fans crying "Encore!" once again."

Publisher's Weekly
"Wisecracking Chicago actress Morgan Taylor grabs center stage and never lets go..."

Library Journal
"...light and finely rendered..."

Contra Costa Times
...characters are strong and interesting, and the atmosphere of the ship provides an added dimension. I enjoyed the strong Chicago setting of this series' debut [AUDITION FOR MURDER] but am happy to see that this book is a class act even when it's on the road.

Books in Motion
It's a juicy backstage mystery peopled with show-biz eccentrics and dubious characters.
