Arleen Allemanabout this book: In this fifth Darcy Farthing novel, Freelance reporter, Darcy, her new husband and government investigator, Mick, and family and friends meet to enjoy a cruise around Australia. From the first day on, bizarre incidents seem to be aimed at a small town Kansas group on board for their twentieth highschool class reunion. Darcy's ex husband and fiance, Sid plan to marry on the ship, but Brooks is the owner of ATC travel agency and becomes embroiled in the Kansas group's problems.
An infestation of invasive yellow crazy ants and a food-borne pathogen at first seem trivial, but soon the ants injure passengers and crew and the first mysterious death occurs on an Adelaide street. As other traumatic attacks occur on board, Darcy uses her investigative skills to unravel a murder mystery that hits very close to home when Sid becomes a victim and Brooks becomes the security chief's primary suspect.
At the same time, Darcy and Brooks's daughter, Rachael unknowingly becomes involved with an assailant seeking revenge for a twenty year old crime.
As with other novels in this series, science and history tidbits and exotic travel intertwine with intelligent subplots with a humanist theme.
