Murder on the SS Rosa (Mystery & Thrillers)
3 chapters   —   updated Apr 15, 2017 04:06AM
Description: "Ginger Gold is one smart fashionista cookie! Love a woman who has a mind for puzzles and a head for hats!" - Lucille Franke, reviewer In the spirit of Agatha Christie, Lee Strauss presents a brand new series reminiscent of the Golden Age of Mysteries. This is a novella prequel. It’s 1923 and young war widow fashionista Ginger Gold makes a cross-Atlantic journey with her companion Haley Higgins to London England to settle her father’s estate. When the ship’s captain is found dead, Ginger is only too happy to lend her assistance to the handsome Chief Inspector Basil Ward. The SS Rosa delivers a convincing array of suspects—the wife, the mistress, a jealous crew mate. To Ginger’s dismay, her name has been added to the list! With a little help from Ginger’s dog Boss, Ginger and Haley navigate the clues. They must solve the case and clear Ginger’s name before they dock—and whatever shall she wear!

“Ginger expressed a desire for a Mary Pickford, and Haley asked for a Sidecar—American cocktails—but fortunately, the waiter hailed from Boston and had likely learned of them as Ginger and Haley had, by visiting illegal speakeasies.”
Lee Strauss, Murder on the SS Rosa

“Mr. Reed,” Haley continued with a clipped voice. “All women in America now have the right to vote, not just those who are over thirty like in your country. American women are considered equals to their male counterparts. Any”
Lee Strauss, Murder on the SS Rosa

“Ginger shrugged and batted her eyelids with innocence. “Those are words I like to live my life by—ambitious and daring. In fact, I want those very words written on my tombstone when I die.”
