Publisher Description

'An exquisite story of love, murder, adventure and dark secrets, Rachel Rhys brings this dangerous crossing brilliantly and beautifully alive' LISA JEWELL 'Thrilling, seductive, utterly absorbing.' PAULA HAWKINS 1939, Europe on the brink of war- Lily Shepherd leaves England on an ocean liner bound for Australia, escaping her life of drudgery for new horizons. She is instantly seduced by the world onboard- cocktails, black-tie balls and beautiful sunsets. Suddenly, Lily finds herself mingling with people who would otherwise never give her the time of day. But soon she realizes her glamorous new friends are not what they seem. The rich and hedonistic Max and Eliza Campbell, mysterious and flirtatious Edward and fascist George are all running away from tragedy and scandal even greater than her own. And by the time the ship docks in Sydney, two passengers are dead, war has been declared, and life will never be the same again ...oFor weeks, the ship has been like a world within itself, a vast floating city outside the normal rules ...o 'Thrilling, captivating. Simply stunning' Daily Express 'It is written so beautifully it seems to glide by way too quickly, transporting you on a journey you won't want to end' Sunday Mirror 'Rhys creates such a powerful sense of foreboding that you may well gulp down the entire book in a single day' The Irish Times
