It's Oktoberfest and the globetrotting Iowa seniors are sharing their Sounds of Music adventure with several oompah bands whose dream of performing in a famous German beer hall is about to be realized. But when a deadly relic from wartime Munich rains disaster on the group, their dreams are shattered—until an unlikely guest offers them new hope.
The tour hits a sour note when tragedy strikes a guest who knew the musicians' most guarded secrets. Was the death an unfortunate accident or something more sinister? As the group travels from the beer tents of Munich to the fairytale castle of Mad King Ludwig, Emily strives to restore harmony. But with the situation escalating out of control, could the gang be looking at a terrible end to their German interlude?

Hunters busy 10th Passport to Peril mystery (after 2014s Fleur de Lies) might well be subtitled the tour from hell. Emily Andrew Miceli, the Iowa tour guide (and wife of a sexy Swiss former police inspector), leads a group of about 30 older adults to Germany, where the many musicians in the group will perform in Oktoberfest shows. An accident kills Astrid Peterson, a popular accordion player, after which things go seriously awry. While there are a lot of people to keep track of, a few stand out, such as Emilys mother, who has OCD and tries to alphabetize everything that holds still. And her outspoken Nana clearly could give Stephanie Plums Grandma Mazur a run for her money. Readers should be prepared for a fair amount of material that strains credulity. For example, practically everyone on the tour works for the same lock-and-key factory. Some will find all the mayhem charming, while others may want to burn their passports.
