Again another great book from Stephen Murray. A pleasure to read..Stephen... you did it again....Look forward to your next book!
While a mystery like Murder Aboard the Queen Elizabeth II may be described as an emotional rollercoaster, I found it to be, both literally and figurative, more like a cruise with countless emotional ports of call. From the beginning, two primary questions are obvious: 1 Who is murdered? 2 Who commits the murder? On the contrary, the answers to these questions are so skillfully woven into the text by the author that the reader is never quite certain of which direction the turn of events may take. This however, is exactly what keeps you turning page after page, gleefully outwitted by the author’s intricate plot until you arrive at the surprisingly unexpected outcome. This same element of unpredictability is also why I recommend Stephen Murray’s Murder Aboard the Queen Elizabeth II to anyone ready to embark on a truly mysterious and thrilling adventure.
I found this book very interesting. Read it in two sittings. The author threw me off the bus with the ending. I was thinking of a few others who had good reason to do the deed. Waiting for the next edition.
This book of Stephen Murray's is a wonderful murder mystery that is wholesome and entertaining for a rainy afternoon of mystery solving. Stephen's books are thought-provoking, and who-dun-it is anyone's guess right up until the end. I wonder if he's writing a sequel to this book as it would be interesting to see how the lives of friends and family meld back into daily living. Where do you go, and how do you manage life after being involved in a murder on the QE II?
I relished every page of Stephen Murray's 'Murder Aboard the Queen Elizabeth II'. It was a delicious mix of love, jealousy, betrayal, vendettas and lastly, murder aboard the famed QE II. What started out as a lovely celebration, slowly turns to a tragic murder. The suspects are many as once again, Stephen Murray's characters are revealed to the reader, in vivid detail. A true who-done-it. If you are a mystery lover, you will be turning pages at a record pace and enjoying every minute!
This is a good murder mystery that leaves one wondering until later in the story, who will be murdered, as well as who commited the crime. Murray does a great job of creating true-to-life characters. And if you like interesting twists and turns and a surprise ending, this is the book for you.
I picked up this book to take on vacation. I am am not a fan of this genre, but I loved this book. The writing is excellent. I simply could not put it down. I liked the twists and turns. I am hoping Mr. Murray will write another mystery.
Fun, captivating story! Read it in about 3 sittings, couldn't wait to read what would come next! Love every one of Stephen Murray's books, I have read them all!
As an avid mystery reader I found the story fascinating. I loved the plot and the descriptions of the QE II. I could actually imagine being there. I thought the characters were well-drawn and I believed in them all! For some reason I never liked the "birthday girl," wonder if that was intended?You fooled me with the killer,too! Well done!
Stephen Murray did it again, another great book. I can't remember the last time that I picked up a book and couldn't put it down. The characters were so well detailed and the storyline flowed. A fun whodunit, that had me guessing to the end. I love this book and highly recommend it to anyone who likes cozy mysteries.
