Summary

New York, 1908. While waiting to embark on the Caronia, the Cunard Line’s famous ocean liner, private detectives George Dillman and Genevieve Masefield are startled to witness the boarding of a man and woman in shackles. They discover that these prisoners are being brought back to England by Scotland Yard to face trial for murder.

Over the course of the crossing, while managing purse-snatchers, burglars and drug traffickers, Dillman and Masefield come to believe that the captured couple may not be the vicious criminals some might think. But pursuing the hunch that they are innocent becomes harder when a killer strikes on board. Dillman and Masefield will need all their wits to navigate the waters ahead.

Previously published under the name Conrad Allen, the Ocean Liner series sets sail for a new generation of listeners.

Narrator Perfection

I've enjoyed all of Edward Marston's books. They are unfussy with well-developed plots, intriguing mysteries, and interesting characters. The Ocean Liner series is entertaining, and I suggest they be read in order. Murder on the Caronia is the 4th. It can stand as an independent book but is enhanced by knowing the backstory. I want to applaud the narrator for this book - James Langton. Excellent job- one of the best I have encountered, and I am a long-time audiobook listener. This book called for a variety of accents and characterizations - British, French, American, class, haughty, distressed, male, female, rustic - with quick changes in dialogue. Langton did this perfectly. It just takes a good book up a notch.
