Award-winning author Pat Murphy takes us aboard a luxury cruise ship and into the strange confluence of time and space known as the Bermuda Triangle, in an engaging science-fiction romp that recalls the work of Kate Wilhelm.

Susan Galina and her friend Pat have escaped their normal lives into the elegant, isolated world of the Odyssey, a luxury cruise ship heading from New York to Europe via Bermuda. Pat is working on her doctoral thesis in quantum physics, and Susan is recovering from a recent and unhappy divorce.

To Susan's delight, she discovers that her favorite author, Max Merriwell, is also aboard ship, teaching a writers' workshop. Susan's life becomes even more interesting when she meets Tom Clayton, the handsome chief of security. This cruise looks very promising indeed. But the pleasant shipboard vacation turns dark as the Odyssey passes into the Bermuda Triangle.

Each year, Max Merriwell writes three novels, a science-fiction novel under his own name, a fantasy novel under the pseudonym Mary Maxwell, and a mystery novel under the pseudonym Weldon Merrimax. The trouble begins when Max receives a threatening note that appears to come from Weldon Merrimax, Max's own pseudonym. Susan hears wolves howling in the night, the ship's passengers are seized with a dancing mania, and monsters lurk in the ship's corridors. An eyewitness reports a murder, but the victim of the crime is not on the passenger list and the body is nowhere to be found. While others struggle to understand these strange events, Pat seeks the explanation in quantum theory.

Out of these elements, Murphy builds a suspenseful, funny, fast-paced novel of shifting and intersecting realities that is a joy to read.

Listener Opinions

    " I listened to this book in an MP3 format while exercising so maybe my view of the book is tainted. It was okay, but just okay. Maybe I would have liked it more if I had been suffering less while I listened to it. "

    " I loved Pat Murphy's sci-fi retelling of the hobbit, but this book was nowhere near as good. The concept was clever--a writer's pen names coming to life on a cruise in the Bermuda Triangle--but the plotting was slow and nothing much happened until the end. "

    " A fun, but easy read. I like the fact that it explores some aspects of quantum physics which adds to the enjoyment. What is reality? "

    " I'd never heard of this author before, but now I'm hoping to read more of her books. This book was fun to read and the author certainly didn't take it too seriously, which made it silly in parts, but good overall. "

    " I really enjoyed this novel. I especially enjoy the physics behind it. "

    " This book was frivolous, predictable, and a heck of a lot of fun! Also, it reminded me how much I love Wild Angel, so I went and re-read that one Friday night. I'll have to get my hands on There and Back Again, the third book in this not-actually-a-series, one of these days.... "

    " I loved this book. It's one of the those books where the less you know about it, the more you're going to enjoy it, so if you like barely sci-fi-ish books, just read it. "
