The seventh Louise Pearlie WWII mystery finds the OSS clerk onboard a ship en route from America to England in February 1944. The war is still raging, and no Atlantic voyage can be considered safe, but Louise remains hopeful of a peaceful crossing, a lull between her hectic job back home and her new posting in London. But when rumors surrounding an apparent onboard suicide morph into a real murder case, Louise realizes she has a killer to catch. The Louise Pearlie series has steadily improved over the years, and historical-mystery readers who have not yet checked it out should be encouraged to give it a try (all the installments function fine as stand-alones). This entry, in particular, is a cracking-good read, a genuinely suspenseful mystery set against a vividly realized WWII backdrop, laced with plenty of shipboard suspense.
