In the thriller "The Gentleman Host," a serial killer makes the ocean his playground as he poses as a suave gentleman host on cruise lines and throws unsuspecting middle-aged women overboard in the middle of the night. The killer continues his rampage for more than two decades before Dusty Flanagan, an ex-Marine and retired Chicago police detective, receives a call from Sam Murphy, a former police detective who now works in security for a major cruise line. Murphy convinces Flanagan to partner with him on the investigation that begins with the two determining if the disappearances are tragic accidents or heinous crimes. Their task is not easy without a body, witnesses, or a crime scene, but with a little bit of intelligence, humor, technology, old-fashioned dogged pursuit, and dumb luck, the detectives manage to zero in on the killer. A woman is used for bait, and as the "Mystic Seas" heads for Jamaica, taking the killer alive proves to be a challenge for the two detectives, but their most shocking development is yet to come when they glimpse into the twisted mind of a serial killer.
