Oliver Twisted

by Cynthia Chow

For aspiring actress Ivy Meadows, nee Olive Ziegwart, her newest gig on the Hawaii-bound SS David Copperfield is about as perfect as it could get. Not only would she be paid to perform as Nancy in the onboard musical adaptation of Oliver Twist, Ivy would also be working undercover with her private detective uncle to investigate a string of cruise line thefts. Before Ivy can even attend a rehearsal or question a suspect, she has the unpleasant experience of discovering her Madame DeFarge’s roommate’s body stuffed into their tiny cabin’s closet.
