A home invasion, a body overboard, a missing woman, OR a mentally unstable main character who is imagining things....As frustration mounts, Lo is faced with the single most defining decision in her life - was there ever a girl in cabin 10 or could it have been all in her head? I was back and forth so many times with my theories and in the end - I was wrong. I love being wrong. Is there anything better than reading a thriller and finding out that you were totally off-base? Next time I am invited on a cruise (that doesn't happen to me but it sure would be nice?!) my answer will be a HARD PASS.
“There’s a reason why we keep thoughts inside our heads for the most part—they’re not safe to be let out in public."
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.
“What was going to happen to me? There were only two possibilities—they were going to let me go at some point. Or they were going to kill me.”
