In a society obsessed with youth and beauty, sexagenarian English teacher Claire Bentley suddenly finds herself an unwanted commodity whose expiration date has come and gone. Cast aside by the school system that once valued her, an unfaithful husband who once adored her, and children who have grown and gone, Claire struggles to overcome numbing disappointment, pain, and loss. When her younger sister, Louise, trusted confidant and CEO of the vast empire owned by billionaire Roger Littman, offers Claire the opportunity to become the sole theatre director on board the luxury liner The Silver Phoenix, she reluctantly agrees. However, on the ship's maiden voyage and before the curtain rises on Claire's first production, Littman is murdered in Claire's Silver Aisles Theatre. Claire's beloved sister is falsely accused of the murder and due to be imprisoned as soon as the ship turns around and reaches port. Unwilling to let that happen, Claire conducts her own investigation against the mandate of the ship's security chief and advice of her newfound friends. Eventually, security chief Watson, multiple possible culprits, and the true murderer all learn never to underestimate the strength, courage, and determination of a woman on a mission to protect the people she loves. The Silver Phoenix is a fast-paced page-turner with plot twists and a cast of characters that will evoke both tears and laughter, keeping you engrossed and guessing up until the end
