Cruise Ship Murders tells the story of two retired couples, Sonny and Jane and Gene and Susan, who are taking their lifelong dream of a world cruise to all seven continents. They planned and dreamed about taking this trip for a very long time to see places they had only read about in books or seen on TV. They had hardly started their world cruise when they attend the captains welcome aboard cocktail party and have a big surprise: the captain turns out to be Sonny’s best friend from childhood. The bigger surprise is, neither Sonny’s wife nor his companions had ever heard of this friend. The next surprise is a passenger is murdered in her stateroom, and the captain asks Sonny and Gene, retired homicide detectives, to take charge of investigating the murder. The ship’s security staff is hardly trained to handle a murder. The cruise takes them to all the places they had dreamed of seeing and gives the reader a glimpse of what it’s like to visit: Uluru; the Great Barrier Reef; the Taj Mahal; Machu Picchu, and many other places. The murders don’t stop. Sonny and Gene have never had a case with almost no clues. The only thing each of the murders has in common is an association with a man named Lucky Jordan. Lucky was a very good-looking man, very charming, and women were attracted to him. Was he the killer or was there something else about him that was causing their deaths.

Dudley Pope meticulously researches the story of the bloodiest mutiny in the history of the Royal Navy - the butchering of the officers aboard His Majesty's Frigate HERMIONE 32 guns, in the West Indies in 1797. The captain of the frigate, Hugh Pigot, was a brutal and sadistic commander who flogged his men mercilessly and drove them beyond the limits of endurance. However, nothing could excuse the slaughter of guilty and innocent officers alike as the mutineers went wild and committed crimes beyond anything Pigot could have dreamt up. Not content with that, they then took the ship into an enemy port and gave her up to the Spanish who, unaware of the true facts for some time, nevertheless greeted them with the contempt they deserved. The Spanish took the ship into their service but due to an amazing episode of red tape and internal wrangling, never actually got the frigate to sea. Meanwhile the Royal Navy relentlessly hunted down the mutineers over the next ten years and of the 33 either caught or who gave themselves up, 24 were either hanged and hung in chains upon gibbets, or transported for life. A number managed to escape justice. The author describes these events which end with the daring re-capture of the HERMIONE under the guns of Spanish forts, with Captain Edward Hamilton leading 100 English sailors in six open boats in one of the most brilliant cutting-out expeditions in naval history.

Blind Spot For Murder is a completed, 102,964-word Fictional Thriller. It is targeted toward adult readers. The story takes place in the US and Europe, as well as the many beautiful ports of call of various cruise ships. Max Cutler is a young law school graduate who is recruited by the Secret Service. Not to protect the president, but to protect America’s interests abroad; specifically, to break up a counterfeiting ring based in Germany that is using US dollars. While Max is in Europe, his younger sister disappears from a cruise ship in Alaska. He flies back to comfort his parents, who are subsequently killed in a plane crash. Max is devastated. In trying to determine the details surrounding his sister’s death, he discovers that over 700 people per year go missing or die on cruise ships, raising more questions than answers. He befriends Cheryl, whose husband has disappeared from a cruise ship as well. They join forces and create MIDAS, Marine Investigations Deaths at Sea. Max recruits investigators from among his cohorts; former US Secret Service and Navy Seals; British military intelligence; German police, and New Zealand SAS, among others. The best of the best. While Max is on the trail of the European counterfeiters, MIDAS is tracking down a serial killer on the high seas known as the Grim Reaper. These two worlds collide when the details of what actually happened to Max’s family emerge.
