In July of 1897, the S.S. Portland sailed from Alaska to Seattle carrying two tons of Yukon gold, setting off the famed Klondike Gold Rush. Now, the Spirit of '98 is recreating that historic voyage and Alex Jensen is assigned to watch the gold. With his lady love, the famous "musher" Jessie Arnold, at his side, he is looking forward to the leisurely trip, until an unexplained rash of shipboard robberies and a probable death jolts him into action.

The only law officer in the vicinity, it is now Alex's duty to unravel the twisted skein of lies, greed, and lethal secrets that entangles the crew and passengers on this historic cruise, before death once again hails the Spirit somewhere along the Inside Passage.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jacquie | 2/18/2014

    " Couldn't quite get into it like I did the rest of the series. Way too many secondary characters between the other passengers, crew members and bad guys and I had trouble keeping them straight. Long build up to a quick slightly muddy ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilary | 2/1/2014

    " If you want a good whodunnit, this is an excellent example of the style, just don't expect it to be like Henry's other Alaskan mysteries! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeri | 1/25/2014

    " 3.5 Fourth in an excellent series. I like the characters (in addition to the main characters there were some memorable secondary ones), the scenery is breathtaking, and the suspense builds to heartstopping conclusion. I could've done without the bits from the villain's viewpoint(s) -- it didn't add a thing to the story IMO, but it didn't stop me from enjoying the book either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo Anne | 1/2/2014

    " I pretty much have read this entire series :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamilah | 12/31/2013

    " The series deals with a woman "musher" - sled-dog racer. She is tough and smart, and reminds me of Nevada Barr's woman park ranger character. I liked this one, because it had some historical reinactment in it also (Alaskan Gold Rush commemorative cruise). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 12/28/2013

    " Enjoyable mysteries by Sue Henry. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 12/16/2013

    " Another Mystery book. Murder takes place on a ship re-creating the voyage of 1897 as the ship sails on Alaska's Inside Passage between Skagway and Seattle. Begins a little slow, but builds up to intrigue as things begin to happen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 12/6/2013

    " A great mystery I stumbled upon while looking for books about Alaska in preparation for a trip there. It's well written; historically accurate with notes at the end, and solved believably (something I really appreciate in a good mystery!). I'll read more of hers eventually. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 12/1/2013

    " Interesting take on murder mysteries. But I can't help being cold whenever I read one of her novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 10/9/2013

    " I really enjoy these mysteries. Sue Henry has several and I really enjoy her writing. It is a fairly easy read and good winter day book to pass time or get away from reality. She really allows you to become the character, a women of adventure and strenght. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anna | 9/22/2013

    " The Alaskan stuff carries a mediocre mystery. Very Agatha-esque with a captive cast of suspects. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 8/14/2013

    " Nancy 4 stars; Ron 3 stars "

    " Liked twists and turns. "

    " This was a wonderful trip through the inside passage as well as an intriguing mystery. Sue Henry is a wonderful writer who makes you see through the characters eyes. I recommend this book and any others I have read by her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 1/5/2013

    " This was a good mystery...fast read...I like it better than Deadfall, which is the only other book I've read by this author. After this one, I plan to read more of her novels. This could make a cool movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 8/31/2012

    " First book I read in the series so I didn't know the characters. Action was pretty unbelievable. I liked that it wasn't particularly violent or gruesome. "
