Take a simple, three-day cruise on a lavish steamboat casino, they said. Just keep an eye out for trouble while the Regent rolls the dice, they said.

Markhat should have known the maiden voyage of Avalante’s vampire-crewed Brown River Queen would be anything but a finder’s dream job. Especially when he charges a ridiculous fee—and gets it without a peep of protest.

Recommends it for: fans of urban-fantasy detectives

New rating system, based on the Ability to Distract While Flying:

1-star: consumed with thoughts of dying in a fiery crash
2-star: able to read a page or two at a time but pause to wish that Captain Sully was in the cockpit.
3-star: able to read but distracted by the high-pitched voice of the child three rows in front of me and wishing for earplugs
4-star: only able to be interrupted by stewards bearing drinks
5-star: What? Where? Go away, I'm busy.

Brown River Queen is a five star--so amazingly fun

Markhat is back! Evis and house Avalante hire Markhat to take a 3-day all expenses paid trip aboard the brand new river boat, The Brown River Queen. While enjoying everything that the ship has to offer (as well as his nice 1,000 crown commission) he is to do what he does best - uncover what is hidden. The story twists and turns and explodes at the end.

There is a great deal to like about this book. Like all the others it is great fun. I love the writing and Tuttle injects personality into his ch

Fun, Fun, FUN. I love the relationships have evolved. The plot is quite intricate and filled with red herrings. I did not guess the culprit and his unveiling was genius.

As the dues ex machina that is the quick invention cycle of House Avalante we start moving from a Victorian setting in to a more Wild West setting. This may be off putting but trust me the stories more than make up for the abrupt shifts in development. In Brown River Queen we are treated to a mystery aboard a steam boat, named the same as the title of the book. As usual the thing that pulls Markhat's bacon out of the fire is something that he claims he doesn't believe in. While amusing at first, ...more

Delightful. A wonderfully well thought-out world, with tech just beginning to rise, with wonderful, varied, interesting characters, and an intense, enthralling story. I can't ask more of a book than that it yank me in and keep me turning pages eagerly. This did just that.

Our hero, Markhat lovingly settled into domestic bliss with Darla is tasked with security on a river boat powered by the new steam technologies and carrying the Regent on a journey upriver. While awaiting the sailing date, he is viciously attacked by strange, smiling women barely surviving the assaults. Once the story moves to the steam boat we have a fantastical country house mystery which holds it's who-dunnit secret till the very end. Markhat ends up dealing with a hellmouth intent on devouri ...more
