It’s danger on the high seas for the Barnetts, but will it come from the authorities, Mother Nature or family Flood?

In Wisconsin six years ago, Ursula Barnett accidentally defrauded her local church of thousands. The statute of limitations is inching closer, and the police are circling in. Panicked, Ursula books herself and her American family passage on a budget centennial Titanic cruise, hoping to ride out the investigation and embark a woman redeemed.

But lurking amongst the leaky walls of the Queen of Crabs is a danger worse than disgruntled, poorly-paid staff, bad food and terrifying onshore excursions: her Irish family, still resentful of the Barnett’s lottery win years earlier. Sister-in-law Fionnuala Flood, knowing Ursula is a sitting duck for the next twelve days, rallies the family to retaliate, stopping at nothing to drag lady of leisure Ursula back down into the gutter that is their own life. The Queen of Crabs, though, is not Derry, Northern Ireland, but an alien battlefield, where the Barnetts and Floods find more enemies lurking outside the family than within.

Fleeing The Jurisdiction is equal parts Titanic, Love Boat and Voyage of the Damned, a darkly comic story of family relationships, the politics of envy and, perhaps, some personal redemption.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I discovered Gerald Hansen with Hand in the Till… I cannot believe he has done it again, but Fleeing the Jurisdiction is hilarious, gripping, and pulls you in like that tractor beam in Star Wars… I don’t know where he gets his plot lines from, but he takes it and runs with it, in a way that few authors are able to do, yet again, the third time around! An absolute joy to read, highly recommend avoiding hot beverages while reading this book!


The third installment of this series is as funny as the first two! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it, and it’s finally here. Laugh-out-loud funny, slightly twisted, and oh, so much fun!


IT’S A GOOD TIME! The Floods are exactly the kind of characters I would love to go out and get “legless” with. Gerald Hansen did it again! His three novels have made me laugh until my sides hurt. I was “that girl”, laughing out loud on the subway over one of his brilliant novels!


A book funny, thought-provoking, and also with a bit of espionage intrigue…mixed with five card stud! I thought it was great, and I think you will to. So I recommend it.


This book has it all: humor, suspense, exotic locales (Morocco and Puerto Rico), and plenty of Titanic tomfoolery. You won’t be disappointed, and it will make you appreciate your family more.
