Sarah Dean, self-described "accident crime-prone English teacher," and her boyfriend, Dr. Alex McKenzie, are longing for a vacation. No classes, students or conferences for her-no patients, beepers or night calls for Alex.

The two-week cruise aboard the Pilgrim, a luxury yacht owned by millionaire evangelist David Mallory, seems the perfect gateway...until one of the passengers turns up murdered...and those left on board are now both suspects and potential victims.

Could the killer be the eccentric Mallory? His stern secretary Gracie (also sister of the victim)? The voluptuous chef, Andrea Elder? Ezra, the deckhand? Or even Sarah's younger brother Tony, the other member of the crew? Sarah and Alex must find out quickly, or they could become the next victims...

About the Author:

J.S. Borthwick lives with her family on the Maine coast, where many of her novels are set.

From Publishers Weekly:

There's murder on deck when English professor/sleuth Sarah Deane decides to set sail on a sloop exploring the coast of Maine. The luxurious vessel, aptly named the Pilgrim , is owned by a Florida real estate magnate whose dual mission is to distribute Bibles to out-of-the-way churches and to keep his eye out for shipboard drug trafficking for the police. Sarah joins the cruise in order to reestablish contact with her brother, a new member of the crew, but instead finds herself preoccupied with the actions of a cast of characters that includes the perfect host, a prim secretary and her emotionally disturbed brother, and a female chef endowed wth great culinary talents and a distractingly large bust. When murder enters their midst, evasive actions and enigmatic conversations with a literary twist keep the story tacking back and forth from discoveries to lengthy reflections about the meaning of each incident. This book will appeal to those who wish a very leisurely read with introspection at times taking the helm.
