My husband and I have been watching the original black-and-white Perry. Mason TV shows which aired in 1957 to 1966. One thing we’ve learned from these mysteries is “don’t be the person everyone wishes to see die.” As I began reading this book, it didn’t take me long to pinpoint the person who obviously had never seen or read a Perry Mason mystery. I can tell you – Leah was it. What an unpleasant, completely self-centered, control freak, the one thing I trouble with was – why did her long time circle of cruise friends put up with her? Well, if Leah hadn’t been murdered, I think this would have been their last cruise together.
Now you ask, why did I keep reading? Well, of course, I had to see who would murder the very deserving victim. However, the set up for the heroine of the series, Sheila Mackey, was very unique. You see it was a new identity for her. I wanted to see how she was going to navigate her new life. Also, I was intrigued by all the other characters. Great read herrings too. So why don’t you see if you are as intrigued as I was! Plus, I did not guess who the culprit was till the very end reveal. Excellent!
