Jason Davey ran away to sea after the death of his wife, finding work as a contract entertainer aboard a cruise ship, the Star Sapphire. But when faces from his past come aboard as passengers, Jason’s routine week-long trip to Alaska becomes anything but relaxing.
Jason’s wife once worked for Diana Wyndham, a beautiful and eccentric actress. And hard-drinking ex-rocker, Rick Redding, once toured with a band Jason has strong ties to. Now Diana occupies one of the ship’s luxury suites, and Rick dwells in the stateroom next door. Between them, they may know more about Jason’s secret past than anyone suspects.
Jason narrates his—and the Sapphire’s—story with drama, humor, and a touch of the supernatural as he tries to survive a trial by fire and ice on the journey to Juneau, Skagway and Glacier Bay.
