Publisher's Summary

Paradise Lost... (Kate Jones, Book 5)
Kate Jones and her lover, Cole are on a luxury cruise in the Caribbean when a passenger dies of an apparent heart attack and the ship is boarded by modern-day pirates. Along with two other passengers, Kate is kidnapped by a long-lost enemy who wants to settle an old score.
Kate's vacation turns into non-stop action when Anaya's gunmen board the cruise ship and she finds herself on a jet ski surrounded by sharks, kidnapped, held captive, staked down over patch of fast growing bamboo, and drugged in a Voodoo ceremony. Add a 16th century Spanish shipwreck, hidden treasure, and an Obeah priestess and you've got trouble in paradise.
Will Kate escape certain death or end up as shark bait in the middle of the Caribbean?
It's adventure in paradise and promises all the fast-paced action listeners have come to expect from the Kate Jones Thriller Series.

Great Seat of the Pants Thriller

If you could sum up Cruising for Death in three words, what would they be?

Total complete Action

What did you like best about this story?

The characters. Fun and quirky.

What does Melissa Moran bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She ads and builds the tension throughout the story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love the way that Kate deals with all the adversity and comes out the other side.

Any additional comments?

Good job! LOVED it!

Another Great Thriller with Kate Jones

What made the experience of listening to Cruising for Death the most enjoyable?

I really liked the reader, she captured the wry humor and down to earth nature of Kate, the heroine. I enjoyed the setting, on a cruise ship and Caribbean island. The synergy between Kate and Cole moved things along.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kate, of course. She is bold, courageous, resourceful, but also human.

What about Melissa Moran’s performance did you like?

She is a very lively reader who really gets her characters right. She obviously appreciates the humor in the book. She does a good job with male and female characters alike.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A pleasure cruise turns into a nightmare.

Any additional comments?

I look forward to the other Kate Jones audio books.

Cruising for a good book

This book is action packed, if you like action, pirate's, lost treasure ,deserted island, dangerous jungles , shark infested water then this is the book for you.

Kate is on holiday, enjoying a nice relaxing cruise with her boyfriend where the biggest problem she faces is trying not to get sunburn. To bad it couldn't stay that way (well to bad for Kate great for the listener) and she soon finds herself wishing for a gun, when she and two other passengers are taken hostage by an old friend she wishes she could leave behind. I think in this story Kate has grown and is a lot more capable of looking after herself and escaping from the dangerous situations she keeps finding herself in, which makes it a very book.

The narrator was very good has a nice voice that is easy to listen too.
