George Porter Dillman and Genevieve Masefield have crossed the Atlantic Ocean numerous times in their capacity as ships detectives for many of the huge passenger lines of the early twentieth century. On several of those crossings theyve had the pleasure, and in some cases the trouble, of sailing with some very famous passengers. Dukes. Duchesses. Artists. Actors. Musicians. Kings and Queens from exotic foreign lands. They have even broken bread aboard ship with J.P. Morgan. But few names have quite the level of fame and fortune as their fellow traveler on this particular ocean crossing aboard the Celtic: theyll be sailing with none other than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of the most famous detective in the world, Sherlock Holmes himself. As the two excellent investigators encounter the usual array of card sharps, cat burglars, drug smugglers, and crooked passengers of all kinds, will the famous writer help themor hinder them?
