About this title


It's 1927 and young Iris Cooper is sailing home to America after traveling all around the world with her Aunt Hermione in this affectionate homage to 1920s detective novels. Aboard the S. S. Irenia, she encounters an international cast of characters with secrets, and solves a murder with wisecracking newspaperman Jack Clancy. "A delightful throwback to the 1920s . . . It's like turning back the pages to early Christie. . . . Beck handles familiar ingredients without slipping into cliche." - Washington Post Bookworld "Very much like early Agatha Christie . . . unfussy energy and light, stylish period-flavor. . . . Good clean fun, in the most old-fashioned mystery vein--but written without a hint of camp or pretension." - The Kirkus Reviews "Delightful period piece . . . just plain fun, well-written and a delight to read." - The Seattle Times

Priority mail is $12.00 within the continental U.S. for books that are thick or larger than 8vo (novel sized). If your book is a small novel size, we may be able to fit it in a priority envelope with packing which would cost $6.00. All books will have delivery confirmation which allows tracking, included in the postage price. Postage for oversized and/or heavy books over 2.2 lbs. may have an additional charge and will be quoted when the order is received. Insurance, if desired, is extra.

If you are an international customer EMAIL US BEFORE ORDERING and we will give you a postage quote. In general most books weigh more than 2.2 lbs. packed, that is why we recommend you email FIRST before ordering so we can give you an accurate quote.
