Just out of the hospital and totally out of funds, Ralph Leslie jumped at the chance to sign aboard millionaire Marshall Turner’s luxurious super-yacht as steward to the passengers lodged in its after house. His job was easy sailing until one sultry summer night, when the dream voyage suddenly became a nightmare of blood and terror. One ship’s officer was thrown overboard. Another was hacked to death with an ax. The killer struck again and again, and the Ella was awash in a wave of panic that engulfed passengers and crew alike. Only one hand aboard, ex-landlubber Leslie, seemed enough in control to stay the bloody hand of the murderer. But he’d have to stay alive to do it, and that wasn’t going to be easy.

    " Great boy gets girl is hidden among the murder mystery story. It held my interest, and had a great cast of characters to keep track of. My lack of knowledge for a sea worthy vocabulary was affirmed by the main characters wing man. "

    " This was a pretty good mystery. I really couldn't figure out who did it. The story did drag a couple of times, but overall it was good. My only real complaint is that I had a hard time figuring out what time period it was set in. Finally near the end we actually get a date. "

    " The first half of this book is amazing: atmospheric, mysterious, enthralling. By the time the boat reaches the shore, it all goes wrong. The courtroom scene just retells in boring detail everything we already know, and the unmasking of the murderer is ridiculous. Still, great beginning! "

    " Disappointed in The Circular Staircase by the same author, I thought I would give Rinehart another try. The After House was more enjoyable, perhaps because the main character is more sympathetic---a young doctor, just out of medical school, who while waiting for his medical appointment and needing money goes to sea as a common deck hand. At sea, several murders in rapid succession put the doctor in charge of the dwindling crew and the investigation. This novel is fast-paced and exciting, though there's not enough information for the reader to play along and solve the mystery. Upholds Rinehart's reputation as a good storyteller. "
