Come aboard a sparkling floating palace of 1898 as librarian-turned-sleuth, Gwen Barlow, deals with headstrong actors, a heap of debt and a corpse on stage. Will she solve the murder so her showboat can move down river and begin making a profit? Will the handsome captain she hires distract her or be just the help she needs? Problems deeper than Mississippi mud in this tale of humor and suspense.
