This should be the cushiest job Alix London’s ever had.

Surrounded by art and wealth and the sun-drenched Greek isles, she’s aboard a sumptuous mega-yacht with no responsibilities save the occasional lecture to the guests of her temporary employer, Panos Papadakis, one of the world’s richest men. But there’s a catch: she’s there as an undercover operative of FBI special agent Ted Ellesworth, a member of the Bureau’s Art Crime Team. They hope Alix can gather the inside information they need to finally put the cagey Papadakis away.

Moguls, murders, a forged Manet, and the Albanian mafia all play a role and send this pleasure cruise into murderously dangerous waters.

The second Alix London mystery finds the art restorer in a world brimming with idle luxury, spectacular locations, and deadly intrigue, all served up with the style and sophistication with which Charlotte and Aaron Elkins have rewarded mystery fans for the past 30 years.

A Cruise to Die For (an Alix London mystery) by Charlotte and Aaron Elkins was entertaining enough but fell short as a mystery. The murder occurred very late in the novel and wasn't central to the plot. The reveal of the mystery wasn't given by Alix London -the sleuth - or her boss the FBI agent. Rather it was given as a side-bar in the point of view of the murderer. London didn't really seem to have much to do with the resolution of the mystery at all. Her "connoisseur's touch" was of little interest to this reader. I did enjoy the painting and forgery plot, though.
