The Devil and the Dark Water

A Locked-Room Historical Mystery

Stuart Turton

A murder, demons, and a detective duo on the high seas in 1634. Samuel Pipps, the world's greatest detective, is being transported to Amsterdam to be executed for a crime he may or may not have committed. With his loyal bodyguard, Arent Hayes, they set sail but soon encounter strange occurrences including a twice-dead leper, symbols on the sails, and livestock slaughter. When three passengers, including Samuel, are marked for death, only Arent can solve the mystery that connects every passenger onboard before the ship sinks, killing everyone. From the author of The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, this breathtaking novel will keep you on your toes until the end.
