KIRKUS REVIEW

Explosive crime probing by irascible H.M. as three deaths occur aboard the Edwardic bound for the British Isles with a cargo of munitions, planes and nine passengers. Fingerprints at first murder belong to no one aboard; a second passenger goes overboard; an officer is killed during a faked submarine warning. H.M. demonstrates how the fingerprint flummery was done, lies doggo for the killer to attack -- and be caught in the act. Wartime tension plus murder -- a good recipe.
