Nicely diverting

Improbable situation with Alleyne aboard a ship en route to South Africa trying to discover who among the peculiar little group of passengers is a murderer, if indeed one is. Of course, he figures it out, but we don't until we have had a very good time listening to a brilliant reader do all sorts of wonderful voices as we sail with our favorite sleuth from foggy London through the torpid tropics south.

It is okay, but narration needs help.

I had a very difficult time understanding the narrator, especially in the beginning. I had to replay some parts over and over again to understand the words. It's not a bad story, but narration brought the rating down.

Ending was Meh

It was not her best work. Characters were irritating, the setting underwhelming, and the ending fell flat. All this compared to her usual work. Still a good listen.
