Table 29
A Murder Mystery
by Russ Smith

Overview


Who is the murderer? Is it one of the passengers at Table 29? Perhaps it’s one of the other passengers seated in the exclusive first class dining room or maybe one of the crew on board the ship? It might even be one of the passengers in the discounted cabins in tourist class.

Listen to the voice inside the mind of the killer as the victims are identified and the murders are planned. All of the eight people seated at Table 29 are potential targets. Meet them, as well as some of the other passengers on the luxury ocean liner. Watch how they come together to support each other after the first murder and continue to do so, throughout the difficult voyage.

Description


Unlike popular cruise ships that serve a mass market and compete on size and amusement park like attractions, the “United States 21” delivers the best food, service, and elegant surroundings, as did its namesake in the 1950’s and 60’s.

The "21" as she is known, does not shy away from declaring that it offers three classes of service – first class, cabin class, and tourist. Like any cruise ship or ocean liner, the “21” has a cross section of society on board, where wealth, status, culture, and class differences are found.

The “21” takes advantage of technology. All of the capabilities of the Internet and telecommunications are fully implemented and integrated on board.  Will the advanced communications technology enable the police on shore to determine who the murderer is before everyone at Table 29 is dead?

If you read this book while on a cruise, be warned. You may find yourself watching the other passengers and the crew, wondering if one of them is planning the next murder at sea.
