Death Sets Sail
*The number one bestseller!*
The ninth and final novel in the bestselling, award-winning Murder Most Unladylike series.
Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are in Egypt, taking a cruise along the Nile. They are hoping to see some ancient temples and a mummy or two; what they get, instead, is murder.
Also travelling on the SS Hatshepsut is a mysterious society called the Breath of Life: a group of genteel English ladies and gentlemen, who believe themselves to be reincarnations of the ancient pharaohs. Three days into the cruise their leader is found dead in her cabin, stabbed during the night.
It soon becomes clear to Daisy and Hazel that the victim’s timid daughter is being framed – and they begin to investigate their most difficult case yet.
But there is danger all around, and only one of the Detective Society will make it home alive…
Robin Stevens's hugely successful Murder Most Unladylike detective series, which has a passionate following for its period flavour, ingenuity and belief in kindness and tolerance, comes to an end . . . Inspired by Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile and set in the 1930s, the story unfolds neatly and is satisfyingly twisty * Sunday Times * Few series can maintain the thrills and pace over nine books, but Stevens has done so with aplomb . . . Fiendishly clever plotting, a gorgeous Egyptian backdrop, a startling denouement and romance for both our heroines. A triumphant finale for a much-loved series * The Bookseller *
