Synopsis

Woken in the night by screams, Lo rushes to her window to see a body thrown overboard from the next door cabin.

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
