Death on the Danube Murder Mystery

Death on the Danube


The Imperial was an excellent ship and was taking a group of passengers on a river cruise down the Danube from Budapest in Hungary to Passau in Germany. The weather had been good and the atmosphere on board had been excellent. Captain Derek Carlson was happy with they way things had gone.

However, as the ship moored in the pretty village of Durnstein in Austria things took a darker turn when the body of one of the passengers was found on the sundeck. It was clear that the death was not an accident.

As luck would have it, Detective Chief Inspector Appleby of the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary was on the boat enjoying a short break and immediately took charge of matters and liaised with the local police. The Chief Inspector narrowed the number of suspects down to four individuals and now seeks the help of fellow passengers in bringing the culprit to justice.

All the clues will be there to catch the killer but will they be correctly deduced. With the help of the other guests on the ship Detective Chief Inspector Appleby is determined to get to the truth before the evening is over.
