An instant New York Times bestseller, The Woman in Cabin 10 is a gripping psychological thriller set at sea from an essential mystery writer in the tradition of Agatha Christie.

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.

    Loved every page. Excellent imagery, and a very relatable character. Twists that kept me guessing and an ending that left me satisfied.
  • Tedious read, not enjoyable

    The story line is so full of holes it’s unbelievable. The premise of the book, that a neurotic woman on a pleasure cruise hears a passenger go overboard and doesn’t even say man overboard is incredible. Writing is full of useless detail, and very tedious. I started skimming fast less than half way through.

    I don’t get the good reviews that led me to this book. The story had so many unnecessary details and dialogue. The ending felt anti climatic. I was happy when it was over!

    It was contrived and a bit silly. I have liked her other books reasonably well though.
  • Wow!

    I absolutely loved this book. This is the first book I have read of hers and was very pleased with her writing. I really enjoyed the suspense she kept up through the whole book and the reveal was magnificent. She had you thinking one thing then BAM! you’re wrong. I also enjoyed the characters and how she didn’t let everything go as planned.

    The ending was a bit predictable, but great story. I just could’ve used a better ending. But I’m always highly critical of endings.
