Night Ferry to Death

Last night I finished Night Ferry to Death, by Patricia Moyes. This features her Scotland Yard detective Inspector Henry Tibbett. From the back of the book:

As passengers board the overnight ferry from the Netherlands to England, a desperate little man frantically pleads for a cabin as if his life depended on it. But the ship is overbooked, and his only choice is to sleep in a lounge with everyone else, including Chief Superintendent of Scotland Yard Henry Tibbett and his wife, Emmy, who are returning from a holiday in Amsterdam.

The next morning, the man is found dead -the victim of a killer who had to be one of the Tibbetts' sleeping companions in the lounge. Furthermore, the dead man turns out to have been carrying a fortune in stolen diamonds, which have disappeared.

This was a fun read, and I'll probably look up more by this author.
