Death on the Aegean Queen by Maria Hudgins

I like the way Maria Hudgins set her mysteries in travel settings.  In the book Death on the Aegean Queen, I found myself on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean Sea with occasional stops at various Greek islands.  The mystery is multi-layered with disguises, murder, red herrings, antiquity smuggling, and four law enforcement agencies all on the same ship. 

Dotsy Lamb certainly knows how to get herself into deep water.  With the help of a few fellow passengers, one of which has a photographic memory, Dotsy tracks down clues that the officials miss  - or don't find because she has picked them up.

A quick, fun read, and you might find yourself learning a little about antiquities.
