Murder on the Lusitania by Conrad ALLEN

Murder on the Lusitania Murder on the Lusitania by Conrad Allen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I always enjoy murder mysteries and this was no exception.
The settiing is the maiden voyage of the Lusitania from Liverpool to New York (1907).
George Dillman has been hired by the ships captain to pose as a passenger - in fact he is a private detective for the Cunard Line.
He expects to have a few dealings with petty criminals, but events escalate - first the murder of a journalist, then thefts of jewellery and even a favmour Stradivarius violin.
There are suspects galore and the murderer/thief is not who you expected.
