NEW YORK 1900. A captivating historical drama on-board the maiden voyage of the S.S. Minneapolis featuring series character Flora Maguire. For fans of Downton Abbey.

Young governess Flora Maguire is on her way home from America on the maiden voyage of the S.S. Minneapolis with her young charge Eddy, Viscount Trent, when she discovers a dead body.

Unconvinced when the death is pronounced an accident, Flora starts asking questions, but following threats, a near drowning and a second murder, the hunt is on for a killer. Time is running out as the Minneapolis approaches the English coast.

Will Flora be able to protect Eddy, as well as herself?

Is her burgeoning relationship with the handsome Bunny Harrington only a shipboard dalliance, or something more? And what secrets must Flora keep in order to stay safe?

'I thought it really evoked the era. And the atmosphere of an ocean-going cruise lent itself well to a murder scene. And you can quote me on that!' FAITH MARTIN.

'With intrigue heaped upon intrigue [this] is certainly a great "who-dun-it" that kept my attention from start to finish'

'I was kept guessing right to the end. A great read and I will be looking out for more of this author's work'

'This is definitely a 5 star! Highly recommended'

'From the very first sentence I knew this was going to be a wonderful story. Lush and vibrant, articulate and dynamic, I can't say enough about the writing. Davison's prose is elegant and refined lending to the setting of the story. It pulls you in and won't let go'
