As much as I enjoy Mr. Allen's novels, I'm at last mildly annoyed that sometimes the cover illustrations do not accurately depict the vessels he describes. For example, in "Murder on the Salsette" he says the ship has yellow funnels while the cover shows it with red funnels; in another ("Murder on the Minnesota") I seem to recall he said the ship had only one funnel while the illustration showed it with two. Shouldn't the publisher take pains to match the cover illustrations to the book's descriptions? But I do like the books and look forward to reading more of them.
