Inhaltsangabe

The number one New York Times best-selling series that started with Stalking Jack the Ripper and Hunting Prince Dracula continues in this third bloody installment! A luxurious ocean liner becomes a floating prison of madness and horror when passengers are murdered one by one...with nowhere to run from the killer.

Audrey Rose Wadsworth and her partner-in-crime-investigation, Thomas Cresswell, are en route to New York to help solve another blood-soaked mystery. Embarking on a week-long voyage across the Atlantic on the opulent RMS Etruria, they're delighted to discover a traveling troupe of circus performers, fortune tellers, and a certain charismatic young escape artist entertaining the first-class passengers nightly.

But then, privileged young women begin to go missing without explanation, and a series of brutal slayings shocks the entire ship. The disturbing influence of the Moonlight Carnival pervades the decks as the murders grow ever more freakish, with nowhere to escape except the unforgiving sea.

It's up to Audrey Rose and Thomas to piece together the gruesome investigation as even more passengers die before reaching their destination. But with clues to the next victim pointing to someone she loves, can Audrey Rose unravel the mystery before the killer's horrifying finale?

Omg

Almost every time I annotated, the first words would be: omg or aww.
This was one amazing story. Again. It never bores me and seems to get better with every book. I still don’t get who the killer is, until it is revealed for the characters.
I love how the title is correct but misleads you, just like the two before.
The whole dynamic between Audrey Rose and Thomas is a beautiful, but dangerous dance and gives you all the feels. This mystery-romance-murder book is one to read more than once.

Wo Audrey Rose geht und steht...

pflastern Leichen ihren Weg. Selbst auf dem Weg nach Amerika auf einem Schiff, trifft die Heldin auf einen Mörder. Gemeinsam mit Thomas macht sich Audrey Rose erneut auf, das Rätsel zu lösen. Umrandet wird das ganze, durch einen Wanderzirkus, dessen Mitglied Houdini ist. Verschwörung, Rätsel, Mystery, Tarotkarten, Feuerschlucker, Messerwerfer, Wahrsager - alles ist vorhanden und macht es nicht leicht, dem Mörder auf die Spur zu kommen. Wie immer ist die Geschichte spannend und schlüssig und mit mehr unerwarteten Wendungen, wie die Geschichten vorher. Die Sprecherin macht erneut eine hervorragenden Job. Buch 4 erwarte ich mit Spannung.
