A Cruise to Die For (an Alix London mystery) by Charlotte and Aaron Elkins was entertaining enough but fell short as a mystery. The murder occurred very late in the novel and wasn't central to the plot. The reveal of the mystery wasn't given by Alix London -the sleuth - or her boss the FBI agent. Rather it was given as a side-bar in the point of view of the murderer. London didn't really seem to have much to do with the resolution of the mystery at all. Her "connoisseur's touch" was of little interest to this reader. I did enjoy the painting and forgery plot, though.
