Ain't no doubt about it: Ben Webster was murdered, broken neck and all. And, as it turns out, he caused quite a ruckus and made a few enemies before he expired by trying to slug a roulette dealer. Delilah knows the steamship's no-nonsense head of security definitely is dirty and low-down and just plain old mean. . .but could he be a murderer? It's all enough to make her wish she was floating lazily down the Mississippi with Huck and Jim, mainly.
But when someone breaks into and searches her cabin, Delilah is fixin' to do some seriously sly sleuthing into all of this foolishness. Pretty soon her list of suspects is longer than the Mississippi is wide. . .not to mention she's taken quite a shine to Mark Twain himself--or rather Mark Lansing, the handsome actor playing Huck Finn's scribe for the tour.
But of course things just ain't never what they seem when Delilah's at the helm, and one tricky murder turns into two and things start to get pretty dicey on yonder steamboat. Thankfully Delilah's sassy daughter Melissa is only a phone call away because she'll need all the help she can get to keep the boat and it's passengers from an ending that could only be described as. . .explosive!
