The second Rowland Sinclair mystery

Wealthy Bohemian artist Rowland Sinclair and his lively companions are sailing homewards to Australia on the RMS Aquitania. The ship embodies luxury and civilised respite from the tensions of the Depression-era; until the murders start...A passenger manifest containing suffragettes, men of God and mystics ought to provide stimulation and safety; instead, a cocktail of flawed people results in danger, death and a cloud of suspicion which envelops Rowland and his entourage – a poet, a fellow painter and a brazen sculptress.

Finding himself unwittingly at the centre of a murder investigation, can Rowland put a stop to the heinous crimes before he and his friends become victims themselves?

Sulari Gentill expertly weaves real events and personalities into her tension-fuelled murder mysteries which are sure to enthral lovers of deep intrigue and history.
