The chilling follow-up to The Three, Sarah Lotz’s thrilling debut

Hundreds of pleasure seekers stream aboard the Beautiful Dreamer cruise ship for five days of cut-price fun in the Caribbean sun. On the fourth day, disaster strikes: smoke roils out of the engine room, and the ship is stranded in the Gulf of Mexico. Soon supplies run low, a virus plagues the ship, and there are whispered rumors that the cabins on the lower decks are haunted by shadowy figures. Irritation escalates to panic, the crew loses control, factions form, and violent chaos erupts among the survivors.

When, at last, the ship is spotted drifting off the coast of Key West, the world’s press reports it empty. But the gloomy headlines may be covering up an even more disturbing reality.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Hard to put down and vastly entertaining.”

    Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “[An]eerie tale…You’ll turn the pages curiously, hungry for clues, until the ending…kicks you in the stomach. Take it to the beach—but maybe not on a cruise.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “[A] satirical scream…If this tub ever makes it back to Miami, sign me up for the next cruise.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “To voice the denizens of the ship, narrator Penelope Rawlins has to flit through a verbal global gazetteer, and she does so with aplomb…Rawlins is eerily convincing as medium Selene Delray and equally so as an Indian security guard, an Irish nurse, and a South African doctor, among others. Genuinely chilling at times, this is an unusual thriller superbly voiced. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”


  • “Disaster strikes a pleasure boat…Trapped with little to amuse them, the passengers increasingly become enthralled with Celine del Ray, a celebrity medium on board…[and] some interesting side stories delve into the personal lives of those aboard.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “An intriguing take on the classic ‘locked room’ mystery since, as weird things begin to happen, there is no way on or off the ship. She employs this claustrophobic feeling very effectively.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “The confined space of the cruise ship is the perfect setting for Lotz’s suspenseful style. Once things start to go wrong, Day Four is a page-turner…while the creepiness builds.”

    Associated Press

  • Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award
