Henry Grave

Each year, more crimes are committed at sea; assaults, robberies,
missing persons, even murder.  Yet who investigates? 
Jurisdiction at sea is a sticky issue!

Henry Grave is a senior 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 84 years of age, he fits right in with his fellow passengers.

Since Henry works undercover, we cannot show you a picture of him. But you can read more about him in the latest Henry Grave Mysteries:



"With his checkered history and bumbling approach, Grave is an unlikely hero who nevertheless has the confidence of the owner of the cruise line. He needs to discreetly solve the case and help protect the ship’s reputation as a safe place to vacation. But his time is limited and suspects are not; plus, here are all sorts of distractions. Expect to chuckle as Grave rambles through his case." --Sheryl Beauvais, newsreview.com, 10/22/09

"Like an elderly Inspector Clouseau, Henry is wrong more often than he’s right, while always being sure of himself. He also has a lot of the noir hero in him: fatalistic and pessimistic about human nature, yet determined to bring justice no matter what it takes. Exasperating, mouthy, and often offensive to those around him—and occasionally to the sensitive reader as well—Henry Graves has an unusual perspective that makes him an unforgettable character." --Sheryl Beauvais, newsreview.com, 2/14/11

"Henry Grave is one of a kind and an absolute joy."  --Mark West, Author, Fort Ross
