"A geezer with a short-term memory problem gets entangled in several murders. The mystery keeps you guessing, and the subject of memory loss is sensitively treated..." Kirkus Review, November 2012

"...lively fourth mystery featuring octogenarian Paul Jacobson...the story's endearing zaniness keeps boredom at bay." Publishers Weekly, October 10, 2012

— Publishers Weekly

"There's nothing better than a cruise ship for a contemporary closed-room drama suitable for even the gentlest reader. Befeler's fourth series entry is enjoyable for the scenery, the observations about the cruise ship operations, and the Agatha Christie-like summation. Fun for Rita Lakin and Deborah Sharp fans, too." Library Journal, November 2012
