Cruise into murder, mayhem, and alternate realities. 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.

Susan Galina and her friend Pat are relaxing on a luxury cruise ship heading from New York to Europe via Bermuda. Trouble begins when one of the passengers, author Max Merriwell, receives a threatening note that appears to come from one of his own pseudonyms. Susan hears wolves howling, passengers are seized with a dancing mania, and monsters lurk in the corridors. An eyewitness reports a murder that seems not to have happened. While others struggle to understand these strange events, Pat seeks the explanation in quantum physics, in this suspenseful, funny, and fast-paced science fiction romp.

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
