I really enjoyed this one, second in this series about Agatha Christie working for the British security service. She is on a boat going to Tenerife when a young women kills herself. There is another death which already happened on the island which she is supposed to investigate with some help. It was gripping and hadn't figured out the culprit. I look forward to the next book.
