Murder on the LusitaniaBook - 1999
September 1907. George Porter Dillman sets sail from Liverpool on the New York-bound Lusitania for its maiden voyage. Hired by the ship's captain to pose as a passenger, George is in fact sailing the high seas as a private detective for the Cunard Line. While on board, he expects only to deal with petty crimes. But then the ship's blueprints are stolen from the chief engineer's room and a man is killed in his cabin. Working quickly to solve the crime, George makes an unusual and spirited friend, Genevieve Masefield, and the two uncover secrets about their fellow travelers that prove explosive. By turns delightful and gripping, "Murder on the Lusitania" beautifully evokes the Gilded Age and introduces us to two of the most remarkable sleuths in crime fiction.
