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.

    I loved this book! I love this author! She is fantastic and will keep you on the edge of your seat! This book is well written and not at all predictable as suggested by other reviewers. I'm not even sure if we read the same book? lol they couldn't have been reading this one, because it IS really that good.
  • Good but not that Good & a little Bit Bad but not Horrible

    Main character was a whack job, she was annoying but yet relatable. Could have explained more about her past with Ben. The ending seemed rushed therefore it left a ton of holes to try to piece together. I think the author could have spent a few less chapters on whack job Lo & explaining more of the other characters. It was an intriguing read but the ending was so rushed & hurried almost like the author was just sick of writing the book.

    I don't understand why this book was so "great," as it was slow, tedious to read, and pretty uneventful.
  • Good to the last page...

    This book was actually pretty good. I hate the ending because they never reveal who the 3rd body is that was found. The ending left me with many questions. Hoping for a update a part 2 . I want to know more .

    Tough to believe this was a top 10 book. I admit it kept me reading to the end, the end is the best part for sure. The main character "Lo" is just a mess, and hard to like, and hard to root for. I found the story full of holes, with a very unbelievable plot, and ending. I would not recommend this book.
  • Great book

    I really enjoyed reading this book! It's very captivating and suspenseful. I was just expecting a different ending for the murderer, this part was not too great, but still a great book that I would recommend.

    I was flying on a plane through heavy turbulence and this book kept me so engrossed that I was able to ignore the bad weather! It's a page turner.
