The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
  

Lovereading view...

This was meant to be the perfect trip. The Northern Lights. A luxury press launch on a boutique cruise ship. A chance for travel journalist Lo Blacklock to recover from a traumatic break-in that has left her on the verge of collapse. Except things don't go as planned...

Synopsis

The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

Woken in the night by screams, Lo rushes to her window to see a body thrown overboard from the next door cabin. But the records show that no-one ever checked into that cabin, and no passengers are missing from the boat. Exhausted and emotional, Lo has to face the fact that she may have made a mistake - either that, or she is now trapped on a boat with a murderer...

Reviews

'Agatha Christie meets The Girl on the Train in this stupendously good read... Scary and unsettling, it's edge-of-your-seat stuff' Sun on Sunday

'A tense, moody drama set on a press trip that goes horribly wrong... Ware has produced a fantastic variation on the woman-in-peril theme, with a plucky protagonist and a brilliantly claustrophobic setting' -- Joan Smith Sunday Times

'A rollicking page-turner that reads like Agatha Christie got together with Paula Hawkins to crowdsource a really fun thriller' Stylist

'fantastic read. A fog-enshrouded cruise ship, a twisty puzzle of a murder mystery reminiscent of Agatha Christie, and unrelenting suspense. Batten down the hatches and prepare to read it in one sitting!' -- Shari Lapena, author of The Couple Next Door

'[It] channels Agatha Christie's murders at sea in a satisfying contemporary direction.' -- Mark Lawson Guardian, Book of the Year
