When Charlie Guest gets dragged along on a cruise by his friend Martin, he thinks his biggest worry will be seasickness.
But when an outbreak forces some of the passengers to quarantine in paradise, things take a decidedly different turn, especially after a body turns up in a pool. Everyone is a suspect.
With a cast that includes an aging Hollywood bit player, a closeted rising politician, a recent Oscar winner, a charming drag queen - and a hunky mystery man who might or might not be a former ‘80s porn star - Michael Thomas Ford's latest hysterical novel blends romance and mystery into an intoxicating cocktail that just happens to be perfect for escaping the boredom of social distancing.
