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 and haunting novel from Ruth Ware—this time, set at sea.

In this tightly wound, enthralling story reminiscent of Agatha Christie’s works, 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. The sky is clear, the waters calm, and the veneered, select guests jovial as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea. 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 dark and terrifying 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, spine-tingling turns, and a setting that proves as uncomfortably claustrophobic as it is eerily beautiful, Ruth Ware offers up another taut and intense read in The Woman in Cabin 10—one that will leave even the most sure-footed reader restlessly uneasy long after the last page is turned.

    " This story was a whirlwind of activities. It was almost like two stories and what is going on but it kept you hooked. "

    " honestly at first I thought the main character was flighty and silly. The premise was so enticing...In the end I liked her more, and didn't scream at every decision she took, but the beginning was tough! The end had me hanging on a little more, as in the begginning, the author almost lost me a few times...sorry attention wanders when the story is too slow. The event in the very beginning did not grip me as I think it was intended to, might have helped me have more sympathy for her... "

    " Quite a different story line, Was surprised at the ending. I did get the characters confused a little in the beginning but was able to sort it all out. "

    " The story was good to read, but some of the characters I didn't care for, such as Cynthia and Graham (? spelling) the next door neighbor couple. They were a bit freaky! Actually none of the characters interested me very much. The ending was also a bit strange. "

    " I haven't finished listening to this book, but it is bugging me so much that I just had to write a review. The heroine goes into a panic about everything & then drinks like a fish. The narrator does all the voices in the book and her make voices are unbearable to listen to and all the men sound the same whether they are from Brooklyn, NY, a Scandinavian country, or the U.K. It's tough to listen to. Hard to believe that an adult woman wouldn't know that a luxury cruise liner has cabin staff that would have hung up her robe, but instead, of course she went into a panic over it. "

    " This book almost put me to sleep. The plot is not interesting enough to keep your attention and drags on and on! Boring wasted descriptions of thoughts. "

    " I was looking for a mystery book. Unfortunately, although the basic mystery plot of this book is intriguing, it is hard to identify with the heroine who is an alcoholic, hopeless young woman.  The mystery part of the book covers about one third of it. For the rest, you have to suffer through long treatises on the heroine's feelings of fear, panic and self-loathing. The most common self- characterization of the heroine is 'stupid.’  I stuck through the end of the book for two reasons: because I paid for it and because the narrator is so good she makes it almost tolerable. "

    " I love a good plot twist! If you liked Girl on the Train, Gone Girl or Ruth Ware's other book In a Dark Dark Wood, you'll enjoy this one. "

    " I enjoy the Millhone series. Some people have said that these books are good, but 'predictable', but I find enjoyment listening to them as Sue Grafton is a very good writer with a mystery to tell. Kinsey is a likeable character with each book expanding somewhat on her personality. I also appreciate a good mystery that isn't laced with foul language with every other word. Makes my ears hurt. "
