Death Sets Sail Summary

Death Sets Sail: A Murder Most Unladylike Mystery by Robin Stevens

*The number one bestseller!*

The ninth and final novel in the bestselling, award-winning Murder Most Unladylike series.

Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are in Egypt, taking a cruise along the Nile. They are hoping to see some ancient temples and a mummy or two; what they get, instead, is murder.

Also travelling on the SS Hatshepsut is a mysterious society called the Breath of Life: a group of genteel English ladies and gentlemen, who believe themselves to be reincarnations of the ancient pharaohs. Three days into the cruise their leader is found dead in her cabin, stabbed during the night.

It soon becomes clear to Daisy and Hazel that the victim's timid daughter is being framed - and they begin to investigate their most difficult case yet.

But there is danger all around, and only one of the Detective Society will make it home alive...

Death Sets Sail Reviews

Few series can maintain the thrills and pace over nine books, but Stevens has done so with aplomb . . . Fiendishly clever plotting, a gorgeous Egyptian backdrop, a startling denouement and romance for both our heroines. A triumphant finale for a much-loved series * The Bookseller *
Robin Stevens's hugely successful Murder Most Unladylike detective series, which has a passionate following for its period flavour, ingenuity and belief in kindness and tolerance, comes to an end . . . Inspired by Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile and set in the 1930s, the story unfolds neatly and is satisfyingly twisty * Sunday Times *

About Robin Stevens

Robin was born in California and grew up in an Oxford college, across the road from the house where Alice in Wonderland lived. She has been making up stories all her life.

When she was twelve, her father handed her a copy of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and she realised that she wanted to be either Hercule Poirot or Agatha Christie when she grew up. She spent her teenage years at Cheltenham Ladies' College, reading a lot of murder mysteries and hoping that she'd get the chance to do some detecting herself (she didn't). She went to university, where she studied crime fiction, and then she worked at a children's publisher.

Robin is now a full-time author, and her books are both award-winning and bestselling. She lives in Oxford.
