Kurzbeschreibung

Grave Indulgence explores crime on the high seas, and establishes a valiant and original protagonist. Henry Grave is an investigator for the Association of Cruising Vessel Operators. A World War II P.O.W., Henry is as cunning as he is charming, and at 85 years of age, he fits right in with his fellow passengers. At 1200 feet long, the cruise ship Indulgence is the largest in the world. Accommodating 5400 passengers and 2100 crew members, she is nearly as populous as the Pacific island nation of Nauru. At 226,000 tons, she weighs as much as four and a half Titanics. Indulgence is anchored off Helsinki, Finland, preparing to take on passengers for her inaugural voyage when Henry comes aboard. Indulgence is one day old, and nobody has yet been murdered on board. The same could not be said about day two. With the help of an Arabian prince, a voodoo priest, and a displaced band of hunter-gatherers, Henry draws on skills honed in a Nazi prison camp to track down a killer who might have his own reasons for taking this particular cruise, reasons unrelated to the sumptuous meals, delightful shipboard activities, and exciting ports of call.

HASH(0x97cf30cc) von 5 Sternen Another Great Henry Grave Romp 30. Juli 2012
Von Bob - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm starting to really feel at ease when I go on a cruise with Henry. He has a great sense of humor and doesn't take himself too seriously. He's tough, but not an arm-breaker. And he always seems to get the job done, even if sometimes the job gets done in a roundabout way. This installment in the series puts Henry on an extraordinarily luxurious cruise ship, kind of like something they'd dream-up in Dubai. In fact, the owner of the ship is Saudi Royalty. Given this detail, you can imagine an international intrigue element to the murder, which takes place in a most unlikely location, a reconstructed jungle habitat, complete with an indigenous tribe of native peoples. The victim ends up being skewered like a shish-kabob with one of those skinny Indian spears. Of course, trying to figure out why a native South American Indian would want to kill anyone on a ship is a job only Henry can handle, and he has a talent for ferreting out the truth, though not to the exclusion of a good meal, a few drinks and a little romance. After all, it's still a cruise.

HASH(0x97cfcb64) von 5 Sternen Super Satisfying Detective Story 14. August 2012
Von Daniel Stuelpnagel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Wow! I am an avid reader of Doonan's Henry Grave series, and with Grave Indulgence he really takes it up a notch. I still see Chevy Chase playing the elderly detective on the big screen, with his blend of bawdy humor and his constant flirtation with younger women, who invariably shoot him down, his cynical but warm-hearted world view, and his relentless pursuit of the bad guys. Supported by the wild and entertaining world of the cruise ship, lots of exotic surroundings and exotic cocktails spice it up.

The author's archaeological background enables him to create a story foundation that is always inherently plausible and intriguing, which in turn makes the top level characters and crime story that much more enjoyable, always a good read.

I have never been on a cruise but enjoy Doonan's books because they take me into that world along with the essential fascination with nefarious criminals and the clever investigator, Henry Grave, who will always be there to bring them to justice.

HASH(0x97cfc858) von 5 Sternen Kudos for Grave Indulgence 20. August 2013
Von Raina Casarez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I had just disembarked from my first ever cruise on the gi-normous Oasis of the Seas. Imagine my joy when I discovered these books by William Doonan! I love this stories about the cruises. And I really love Grave. What a breath of fresh writing and characters. Thank you. Please write more. I've already read all three and I need more please.

HASH(0x97cfcbb8) von 5 Sternen Aging Hero 8. August 2012
Von Jack Everett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
When I started this book I expected its hero to be a Gene Barry type character, charm personified with a core of steel; utterly unshakeable and a women magnet to boot. Instead I got Henry Grave: an 85 year old diabetic who spends his days never far away from food, young ladies or booze and am I glad. Henry may not be in the James Hadley Chase hero mold but he is definitely one you shouldn't miss. Humor is never far from Henry he wears it like a shield as he walks through a floating palace dishing out his kind of justice; practicing his particular roundabout fashion of solving crime. There were many times in the story that I wanted to laugh out loud but if I told you what they were you would probably not read the book and if that were so you really would miss out on a treat. This one is one you want to be alone with so that you don't have to put it down. It is simply class.
