In author Jane Bennett Munro latest mystery novel, “The Body on the Lido Deck: A Toni Day Mystery” (published by iUniverse), a seasoned pathologist is forced to solve a horrific crime with roots going back 30 years after a mangled body practically lands on her lap during a Caribbean cruise. “The Body on the Lido Deck” is the fifth book in the Toni Day mystery series.

In the book, Pathologist Toni Day is reading on the Lido Deck when a horribly mangled body hits the deck right in front of her. She teams up with her stepfather, Nigel, and Scotland Yard to try to solve the murder with resistance by the captain and the Royal Barbados Police Force. With only two days left in the cruise, Toni and Nigel set a trap to smoke out the killer before the cruise ends and all the evidence sails away on another cruise, placing Toni directly in the killer’s path.

Wound within a tight mystery drama is an exploration of the human psyche; the story highlights the lengths to which some people will go to hide their secrets, no matter how extreme. Filled with self-depreciative humor, Munro hopes readers will be entertained and wowed by Toni’s expertise in solving a grisly murder aboard a glamorous cruise ship.
