A Tangled Web of Deceit

It’s appropriate to start the story of the SS Princess Louise, like the film “Sunset Boulevard,” at the end and with the victim dead and under water.

The police would register the facts as follows: On the afternoon of 30 June 1990, the SS Princess Louise sank in 900 feet of water off the Southern California coast, somewhere about 33 degrees latitude and -118 degrees longitude. A bit more, a bit less. To most people it doesn’t matter.
