Book Description

The sixth instalment in the Cait Morgan mystery series, a classic whodunit featuring an eccentric and funny female sleuth set on a Hawaiian cruise ship.

Cait and Bud have set sail on a romantic and worry-free Hawaiian honeymoon cruise, but when a man drops dead at their card table, Cait can’t help but lend her expertise. The sudden death appears to have been from natural causes, but Cait suspects something sinister, and with only two days left at sea—and thousands of possible suspects—she and Bud join the head of security in an investigation. However, the unique circumstances of an at-sea investigation mean their involvement cannot be official, and Cait must lean on her charm to conduct her own covert interviews.

The case of The Corpse with the Diamond Hand will have you marvelling at Cait’s cleverness as she brings yet another murderer to justice.

My Review

 The Corpse With The Diamond Hand is the sixth book in the Cait Morgan Mystery series by author Cathy Ace. I have really been enjoying this series. It is well written and has great plots and characters.

The Corpse With the Diamond Hand is set on a cruise ship in the Pacific Ocean. Cait and her new husband, Bud, are on their honeymoon. I have particularly enjoyed this latest book as I just returned from a cruise. I started reading this book while still on the cruise in the Eastern Mediterranean. Ace's details about cruise ships are dead on.

The ship's card room specialist dies right in front of Bud and Cait during the voyage. They convince the ship's security officer to let them help solve the baffling murder. The suspects pile up as the ship heads toward Vancouver from the Hawaiian islands. I was very surprised at the revelation of the killer. Cathy Ace crafts a good, well plotted tale.

I like the references to places around where I live. Cait and Bud will be settling in Maple Ridge, BC after the cruise. Cait teaches at Vancouver University which is in actuality Simon Fraser University which is the university I attended. I have enjoyed vacations in Hawaii as well so I enjoyed the references to their time there.

Highly recommend The Corpse With the Diamond Hand by author Cathy Ace.
