Crime on a Queen


by James Harley

After leaving school at 15, author, James Harley, served an engineering apprenticeship and joined the Merchant Navy as an engineer officer for six year. He spent the rest of his working life with the Ministry of Defence, their ships and the sea. This book is a wonderful read by an author who clearly has great knowledge of maritime work. It all begins when 23 year old James Royston finds himself finally free from working the cargo ships in London and employed as an Engineer Officer by Cunard Steam Ship Company, and best of all, on the famous Queen Mary. Making good friends along the way, James works hard in the engine rooms, despite the inconvenient shift hours. However, little does James know, unfortunate circumstances will lead him to taking on a vastly different position among the ship’s staff, and mixing not only with fellow officers, but drinking champagne alongside the first class passengers too. A lot can happen on one ship’s round trip journey between Southampton and New York, and with nowhere to go, crimes must not remain unsolved.
