"Samuel Pipps is the greatest detective of his day...but now he's a prisoner, accused of an unknown crime by one of the world's most powerful men. Along with his faithful sidekick, Arent Hayes, they're sailing back to Amsterdam from the East Indies, where he'll stand trial. But no sooner are they out to sea than devilry begins to blight the voyage. Still shackled in his cell, Pipps sends Hayes to solve a mystery that connects every passenger on board. All hope is pinned on Hayes solving the mystery, but when he goes missing, Pipps is faced with the most dangerous puzzle of his career...All the while, voices whisper to him in the dark. But are those whispers clues? Warnings? Or the devil himself..."-- Provided by publisher.

    The eight-month voyage from Batavia to Amsterdam in 1634 is always perilous, and, as the Saardam prepares to sail, a leper sounds a warning that this trip will end very badly for all aboard. Passengers include Governor General Jan Haan, who is intending to be made a ruler of the United East Indian Company in Amsterdam; his wife, Sara Wessel; his daughter, Lia; and mistress, Cressjie Jens. Also on board are noted mystery solver Samuel Pipps, currently imprisoned, and his bodyguard and apprentice, Lieutenant Arent Hayes. The ship soon appears to be inhabited by the demon Old Tom, whose sign—an eye with a tail—was on its sail and now is found everywhere aboard, as the demon whispers nightly to crew and passengers, offering to fulfill their desires if they follow him. The Saardam faces natural as well as supernatural forces as a mysterious ship trails it, and the body count mounts. A marked departure from Turton's debut (7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, 2018), this is a rousing, action-filled mystery. With a reading-group guide and a short author interview appended, it's tailor-made for book groups with a taste for bloody adventure. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
