A luxury yacht arrives in Reykjavik harbour with nobody on board. What has happened to the crew, and to the family who were on board when it left Lisbon? Thóra Gudmundsdóttir is hired by the young father's parents to investigate, and is soon drawn deeper into the mystery. What should she make of the rumours saying that the vessel was cursed, especially given that when she boards the yacht she thinks she sees one of the missing twins? Where is Karitas, the glamorous young wife of the yacht's former owner? And whose is the body that has washed up further along the shore?

This was the best of author's reads - still quite wordy, but kept my attention. A little disappointed at ending.

Once again, the Queen of Nordic Noir, Yrsa Sigurdardóttir, returns with that penultimate mix of mother - attorney - investigator, Thóra Gudmundsdóttir, to uncover the mystery of a spooky ghost yacht and its missing crew.
Since a bank and a ghost ship are involved, you know the chill Thóra will be dealing with a chiller!
