      George Dillman and Genevieve Masefield are working as undercover detectives aboard the cruse ship Oceanic investigating burglaries, recovering lost objects and always observing their fellow passengers. On this trip they have several challenges; a major burglary, petty thefts and a murder. The resolutions of all of these crimes are fascinating as are the conventions of the first class passengers, their wardrobes and their relationships. Most heart warming is the relationship between the two detec [...]

      This is the first book by Conrad Allen that I read, and I have to say that I enjoyed it. The setting of a historic ship was both intriguing and informative. Mr. Allen does a good job of bringing the reader on board an ocean liner. I began asking myself questions like, "How would I deal with being trapped on board a ship in the middle of an ocean with a murderer? Another interesting dynamic that I thought about was, "Could I work with my spouse without openly acknowledging that I am married?" I l [...]

      sigh. Once again I hoped for something decidedly different from the other books in this series and was once again disappointed. The formulaic nature of the series gets to me sometimes. So, you may ask why I continue to read these books, and the answer is because I own the entire series and have a thing about reading the books I own. Plus, as much as I can't stand the same thing over and over, I've never yet guessed the whodunit so I keep reading them. If you've been following the series, then yo [...]

      Number seven in Allen's murder on an ocean liner series with George Dillman and Genevieve Masefield as shipboard detectives.Set in 1910, this novel traces Dillman and Masefield's exeriences trying to solve a murder as well as recover various stolen items involving first class passengers on the Southhampton to New York voyage of the White Star Line's Oceanic.This pretty much follows the same pattern of previous books in the series with the development of Dillman's and Masefield's releationships a [...]

      This is the worst of the bunch (though I haven't read the last one yet). The secondary characters are disinteresting, aside from Abednego Thomas. And since the premise is so formulaic, the secondary characters are crucial in these books. And, once again, Genevieve is cast as the damsel in distress and needs rescuing. Sigh. It's getting old. One more to go and that's probably a good thing. This ship has sailed, as the George and Genevieve mysteries are running out of steam.

      3.5 starsThis was the 2nd book I've read of this series. I liked it but it was basically almost the same as the 1st book that I read -"Murder on the Maramora." I like mysteries set on ships and sea etc.but bc the books are so similar I probably won't read them all at the same time like I normally do. They are a nice light read every once in a while though.

    10. Ruth Ellen says:

      I am really enjoying these stories. It makes me wish I could go on one of them. I like the little bit of history from each of the books. and the characters who don't get to spend much time together. Still I like them very much.

    11. Pamela Gibson says:

      Wonderful details, great setting, a good look at a time/place usually glossed over. A cruise as a setting, with the historical details accurate as far as I can tell. Recently found ship manifests showing one of my relatives travelling worldwide on some of the ships in this series.

    12. Todd Hoessler says:

      well written, good description of characters.

    13. Julie says:
