But when faces from his past come aboard as passengers, Jason's routine week-long trip to Alaska becomes anything but relaxing. Jason's wife once worked for Diana Wyndham, a beautiful and eccentric actress. And hard-drinking ex-rocker, Rick Redding, once toured with a band Jason has strong ties to. Now Diana occupies one of the ship's luxury suites, and Rick dwells in the stateroom next door. Between them, they may know more about Jason's secret past than anyone suspects.

Cold Play Reviews
I received this book from the author with a request for review.I liked this book from the very start. The setting is marvelous and unusual: a vintage cruiser ship currently doing 7-day Alaskan cruises. Jason, an entertainer on the cruise ship, is the story's narrator. He has a great voice with a gentle sense of humor that shows in his observations of his life, fellow crew members and the passengers, and frequently about himself.This is not a thrill-a-second story. Rather, it slowly unfolds and reveals more layers of intrigue. However, it never felt slow to me. Jason is a good story teller and pretty much the book could have been about nothing more than life on a cruise ship and it would've been interesting. Pointless, but interesting. Fortunately for us readers, however, there's more to this story than life on a cruise ship. The pace continues to pick up as events twist and turn to the final revelations in the end. Nothing horribly surprising - unexpected, but not surprising - but well told and compelling enough to keep me turning pages until I was finally done. I'd actually look forward to another book featuring this character, but this one doesn't really hint at a sequel or leave much mystery for another.I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it's a good value for the price.
Bloody good, couldn't put it down. It was funny, it was thrilling (took my heart rate a good hour to get back to normal after the end), it was twittertastic. Congratulations Winona! Nurse Fiona :)
