The Woman in Cabin 10 (Paperback)Ruth Ware (author)
A journalist on a small luxury cruise ship witnesses a murder no one else believes happened in this masterfully crafted, locked-room mystery from the bestselling author of The Turn of the Key, complete with nail-biting suspense and a perfectly claustrophobic setting.
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.
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...

'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
'A 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
