To raise money for the literacy program, Death on Demand is sponsoring an evening mystery cruise, complete with dinner, a murder play, and a treasure hunt in Murder Walks the Plank, the 15th book in the Death on Demand series by Carolyn G. Hart. Everything is going splendidly until the cry of “Man Overboard!” Max dives into the water and saves Pamela, the community do-gooder, whom Annie and her cohort are convinced was pushed in a murder attempt.
The acting police chief writes off Pamela’s fall as an accident or suicide attempt, and when the next day Meg Heath, a rich old lady who lives life to its fullest despite being given six months to live, dies right after news of Pamela’s death, Annie becomes even more certain of criminal intent. Thus, she and her friends work super hard to prove their theory of murder to the skeptical police chief, Billie.
Murder Walks the Plank is a strong addition to the Death on Demand series, with some fun twists in the book. The plot is well-organized, and the characters a lot of fun.
Kate Reading continues as always to delight in her narration, one of the best narrators available.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and award it a well-deserved five stars!
