Charity Wiser, matriarch of the Wiser clan by virtue of her wealth and power, is an indomitable provocateurand private detective Russell Quants newest employer. There is more than a single rotten apple on this family tree, and Quant has been hired to discover which one is intent on murdering his client. To help him sleuth out the evil culprit, Charity Wiser arranges a family reunion aboard the opulent Friends of Dorothy Cruiseliner as it tours the most exotic ports of the Mediterranean. But smooth sailing is short-lived as undercurrents of clashes -- local and tourist, gay and straight, trendy and traditional -- offer Russell insight into the Wisers and reveal a family simmering with rage and greed. He begins to wonder: Who doesnt want Charity Wiser dead? Shifting from his Prairie stomping ground to a sea undulating with murder, Quants smarts, senses, and sea legs are challenged. In this captivating yet captive environment, family tensions mount and suspicions build. And Russell must balance his detective duties with safeguarding his client and protecting his own life. From the delight of tapas and sweet sangria in Spain to the bitter taste of death in Sicily, Quant connects and clashes with friends and foes in a series of unforgettable locales. Come aboard a sensual journey of sun and sea brine, caviar and champagne on a cruise replete with the luxury of murder.
