A pair of women's pink panties found nearby leaves the doc wondering if this could be a femme fatale Kiss of Death? The doctor and the cruise ship director investigate a probable murder as a surprising plot linked to the Vatican serves up tons of twists and turns, including a ship-wide infection, a bottle of poisoned wine and a nurse with a mysterious rash.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0988579103, Paperback)

This tight, fast-paced mystery tests the heroes' sleuthing abilities to the limit and deftly balances comedy, romance and tragedy. A transatlantic luxury cruise ship provides the exclusive scene of the crime in Paul Davis’s second mystery, starring Dr. Alan Mayhew, the ship’s doctor and, by chance, murder mystery sleuth. When a code blue alert summons the doctor to an indoor badminton court, he rushes to the scene finding a man in his early 40's dead, apparently from a massive heart attack. A pair of women’s pink lacey panties found nearby leaves the doc wondering if this could be a femme fatale Kiss of Death? The beautiful cruise ship director, Tiffany Sylvan, once again joins the doctor in investigating a probable murder as a surprising plot linked to the Vatican serves up multiple twists and turns -- including a ship wide infection, a bottle of poisoned wine, and a nurse with a mysterious rash. "Paul Davis seamlessly bridges a unique mystery with the humor and romance inherent in the workings of a cruise ship - a must read." -Ruben Adams, International Mystery Writers Reviews "Dr Davis nimbly blends sharp wit with unapologetic emotion and humor in an awesome murder mystery." -Peter Greene, The British Mystery Reader
