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.

The women in cabin 10
This book was a very slow read, I don't know how this made NY Times top 10.
Review of THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10
Overall I enjoyed the book although some of the twists and turns and twists and turns were a bit exhausting at times.
Being locked in the small room under sea level was fairly well written and thought out.
The part that bothers me is how the book starts. With a burglar in her flat and writing STOP DIGGING.
Since she hadn't left for the boat, and only started digging after she heard the splash...it just doesn't make any sense how the beginning burglary fit with the rest of the story.
There was also a little too much Agatha Christy-type dialogue and plotting. I've never been a fan of hers, so it was easy for me to pick out her influence on your writing. I'm an American so I hope I haven't blasphemed your fellow country woman.
Keep writing and I'll keep reading.
You won't be able to put it down!
