Description

November 1924. The Endeavour sets sail to New York with 2,000 passengers – and a killer – on board . . . When an elderly gentleman is found dead at the foot of a staircase, ship’s officer Timothy Birch is ready to declare it a tragic accident.

But James Temple, a strong-minded Scotland Yard inspector, is certain there is more to this misfortune than meets the eye. Birch agrees to investigate, and the trail quickly leads to the theft of a priceless painting.

Its very existence is known only to its owner . . . and the dead man. With just days remaining until they reach New York, and even Temple’s purpose on board the Endeavour proving increasingly suspicious, Birch’s search for the culprit is fraught with danger. And all the while, the passengers continue to roam the ship with a killer in their midst . . . _________________________’Dazzling’ Crime Monthly’A very clever plot and a final twist which will delight Agatha Christie fans.

You’ll love it.’ Ragnar Jonasson’With twist after gut-punching twist, A Fatal Crossing really is an ingenious thriller.

Highly recommended.’ M. W. Craven’The action unfolds at a rip-roaring pace in this perfectly executed homage to the Golden Age of crime, which features a deviously devised plot boasting a final twist worthy of Christie herself.

I loved it!’ Anita Frank
