Book Review Forever Doomed

Title: Forever Doomed
Author: MaryAnn Kempher
Genre: Mystery

It's not wise to wander the cruise ship Forever alone at night. You might not live to see daylight.

Detective Jack Harney agrees to do an old Army buddy a favor. Curt Noble had some personal business to attend to, he didn’t say what. What he did say was he needed someone to temporarily take over his duties as head of security on the struggling cruise ship Forever. Jack hesitates, but he owes Curt his life so agrees. He’s told the worst mischief he can expect to encounter will be the occasional shoplifter, or drunk. Instead, one week into the cruise, a beautiful red head and a member of the crew are ruthlessly murdered. Are the two murders connected? It’s up to Jack to find out. He must find the killer before the ship returns to Tampa’s port, or worse, before another dead body is found. This won't be easy. The ship is old, it's security systems outdated, and clues are few, or so it seems at first

It’s not just a sense of obligation that motivates Jack to agree to Curt's request; Jack moved thousands of miles, started over, and still can't get Amy O'Brian out of his heart or mind. When she shows up on the ship, as part of a large wedding party, Jack must fight to stay focused. To make matters worse, Amy isn't his only distraction; a sexy and mysterious woman has made it her mission to seduce Jack.

As the body count rises, and time slips away, Jack has to ask himself, “Did someone commit the perfect crime?”

Jack takes up a job as security manager aboard a cruise ship, to replace a friend of his. But the moment he steps on board the ship, he seals his fate. He's not even been there for a week before a woman turns up dead, murdered. The killer is still on board, and no one has a clue about who he is, or why he murdered her.

It's up to Jack to figure out who killed her, and why. What follows is a decent mystery, that isn't easy to solve, and that has several unexpected twists. It took Jack a little longer than it took me to solve the mystery, but that didn't annoy me in the slightest.
