DEAD MAN DOCKING - MARY DAHEIM

Renie Jones is a graphics designer.  She is quite upset when she loses her largest client, Cruz Cruises.  She felt like she was fired.  Judith, Renie's cousin, tried to make her feel better by stating that she wasn't exactly fired.  The corporate offices were being relocated to San Francisco.  Renie stated that she was going to call her husband's brother and have him "sue the pants" off Cruz Cruises.

In the meantime, the cruise line's owner settled with Renie and offered her a free trip on the inaugural cruise of the San Rafael, his premier liner.  Renie's husband is a psychiatrist and he is tied up with a patient who is threatening suicide.  Since he could not go on the cruise, Renie decided to ask Judith to go along. 

The two are looking forward to enjoying some time off and relaxation.  It just didn't go their way!  Cruz is found stabbed to death and the pre-launch party and that is about as far as they get on their cruise.   

Along the streets of San Francisco, Judith and Renie team up with fellow passengers Rick and Rhoda St. George.  The group decides to play sleuths and solve the crime.  More murders began to take place.

Is this foursome successful at solving the murder? 

Mary Daheim has created a very likeable mystery that is even humorous at times.  You will enjoy the escapades of the amateur sleuths as they embark along the streets of San Francisco looking to solve the murder.  This is one you will enjoy reading on the beach or just relaxing in the backyard.  Mary Daheim has, once again, created a delightful read.
