Overview

Final resting place? Deck chair.


Death on the Diversion is the start of a new cozy mystery series from a USA Today bestselling author.


~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Sheila Mackey has a secret. To the world, she's author of a blockbuster book. Her wily great-aunt, the actual author, orchestrated this mutually beneficial masquerade. Now the aunt's retiring and Sheila must draft Act Two of her own life. This cruise is supposed to be the perfect time to do that.


Crossing the Atlantic on the Diversion, Sheila finds a dead body on deck.


She realizes she knows a whole lot more about the interactions of the victim and suspects than the ship's officials do. She's drawn into sleuthing, but finds herself hampered by a well-meaning but overprotective would-be Doctor Watson.





This murder mystery with humor is the first book in a new series, Secret Sleuth. In later books, amateur sleuth Sheila returns to dry land in the Midwest, where mysteries abound in her new small-town home.




If you like mysteries about the inner world of writers, set among the insular cruise ship community, where even the sleuth has secrets she's hiding (and a dog to come in book two), then you'll love award-winning Patricia McLinn's newest whodunit with humor.


Get on board to sail away with crime, clues and memorable characters.

On the spectrum of McLinn's mystery novels, the Caught Dead in Wyoming cozy series is in the middle, Proof of Innocence is edgier (and has more romance), and Secret Sleuth is a bit less edgy.
