Reviews

'I absolutely swallowed it whole; she takes that classic golden-age premise of a locked room and turns it into something completely right for the twenty-first century' -- Erin Kelly

'The Woman in Cabin 10 is a deliciously compulsive read. At once up-to-the-minute and timeless, it blends classic suspense writing with twenty-first-century twists and turns. A book to keep you reading late into the night and leave your mind and pulse racing long after the final page' -- Ann Morgan, author of Beside Myself

'A dark and gripping thriller that will enchant readers -- Sarah Ward, author of In Bitter Chill A tense, twisty delight that powers along at a heart rattling pace' -- Angela Clarke, author of Follow Me
