“From New York Times bestselling author of the “twisty-mystery” (Vulture) novel In a Dark, Dark Wood, comes The Woman in Cabin 10, an equally suspenseful novel from Ruth Ware—this time, set at sea.
In this tightly wound story, Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant: the cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, gray skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for—and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong…
With surprising twists and a setting that proves as uncomfortably claustrophobic as it is eerily beautiful, Ruth Ware offers up another intense read.” Goodreads synopsis
First, I would like to say that I really enjoyed this book, after all these fast paced psychological thrillers are my favorite genre. There seems to be a lot of them lately, so I know I’m not the only one that feels this way. This book had enough twists and turns to keep me engaged and guessing. It also had a very realistic vibe to it, making it that much more fun to read.
I’ve heard in a dark, dark wood was very good too. I have a copy of that one too, and after reading The Woman in Cabin 10, I can’t wait to read her other work as well.
