After a detachment of photographic reconnaissance aviators is sent from Florida to the USS FDR, five cruise widows are left behind. With a lengthy separation ahead of them, the widows have no choice but to establish a bond as their husbands begin their mission. The five women, who already know a great deal of trust and faith is necessary to be a good navy wife, are at different stages in life, but new to this type of separation. Nan Levin is a mother of two with a talent for creating delicious meals and clothes from designer patterns. Pat Dunn is happy to have her mother help with her children. Mert Sorensen is an excellent cook and baker and mother of three who runs her house like a business. Lia Hayes has seen her share of tragedies, but is now a happily pregnant newlywed. Beth Williams, whose husband is the photographic interpreter for the detachment, is an exceptional bridge player. As the five women find companionship during the separation, none have any idea that a catastrophe aboard the ship will cause not all of their husbands to return home. Cruise Widows shares the compelling tale of five women who embark on an unforgettable journey of bonding, friendship, and heartache after their naval husbands head to sea.

There are hundreds of satisfactory and satisfying British mystery writers whose works should be studied both for their own individual accomplishments and for their comments on the society in which they were published, in the last 150 years, but who have not received any critical comment lately. This volume is designed to correct that fault in a dozen of those unjustifiably neglected British authors: Wilkie Collins, A.E.W. Mason, G.K. Chesterton, H.C. Bailey, Anthony Berkeley Cox, Nicholas Blake, Michael Gilbert, Julian Symons, Dick Francis, Edmund Crispin, H.R.F. Keating, and Simon Brett.

Jonathon Derekaged twenty-seven, a graduate from Fordham Law Schoolis presently a junior associate in the prestigious law firm McKenzie, Dillon, and Reeves, LLC with offices at 250 Broadway, New York; 15 Main Street, Hartford, Connecticut; and 4-14 New Hyde Park Place, London, England. Jonathon is assigned to maritime matters, which include shipping contracts, demurrage claims, and form registry of ships with Bahamian registry as well as representing crew members with personal injury claims suffered in the course of their employment. He is engaged to Sandra Thompson, a twenty-three-year-old blond beauty who graduated from fashionable Sullins College in West Virginia. Her father, Tom Thompson, owns Mercedes dealerships in Paramus, New Jersey; Westchester; and Ridgefield, Connecticut. They reside in tony Alpine, New Jersey. Stephan Kirklandaged twenty-eight, a graduate of New York Law School, high school classmate and best friend to Jonathonis also a junior associate of McKenzie, Dillon, and Reeves. He is assigned to handling jury trials in complex contract cases as well as a member of the American Arbitration Association. McKenzie, Dillon, and Reeves is composed of 250 lawyers and thirty-two partners, including ten junior partners. McKenzie, seventy-nine years old, is a well-respected trial lawyer who started the firm sixty years ago in an abandoned garage in Hackensack, New Jerseywhich his brother Earle, a contractor, constructed into a designer building with Doric columns with a bronze statue of Justice prominent over the entrance arch. He graduated from Harvard, class of 1961, along with classmates Bob Dillon and Charles Reeves, whose families were investment brokers as well as owners of real estate along Edgewater and Weehawken waterfront, which eventually became the Golden Mile with multiple high-rise condo and town houses that permeated the costal line from the George Washington Bridge, south to the Lincoln Tunnel. The firm prospered through the representation of developers, bankers, and prospective buyers of realty and handled multiple applications for variances and permits on behalf of developers who became the moneyed clients for the fledgling firm. The firm leased office space at 250 Broadway in Manhattan to cover clients who were in the concrete business as well as structural components needed for the development along the Jersey side of Hudson, which seemed to mirror the New York skyline. McKenzie hired young Yale and Harvard graduates direct from law school, many of whom came from wealthy families who in turn transferred their legal work to the firm which more than paid for their childrens salaries. He always took the position that a firm could have a million lawyers as long as they put in at least 1,800 hours a year at a $350 rate. McKensie also saw fit to hire law students from Fordham, Brooklyn Law School, and Pace whose duties were confined to trial preparation, handling depositions, and landlord and tenant complaints to avoid the ultraelitist mantel that would discourage and perhaps intimidate prospective blue-collar contractors.
