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.

Feedback

  • Female character not relatable

    Sound familiar. With these more recent thrillers like Girl On The Train, female main character drunk, whiney, with other self-defeating behaviors like potty-mouth and that “to cool for school” persona.
  • Very pleased

    I enjoyed the story being told and how everything was laid out and came together so well at the end. It was a satisfying read.
  • Expected much more

    It is an easy entertaining read but I expected so much more after reading raving reviews. There are so many more great books one can read....and I wouldn’t waste time with this one

    I found it hard to get thru but also at the same time I couldn't put it down. That must say something sort of positive. Kind of tedious, lots of repeating. But a good page turner. Surprised me up to the very end. Glad I finished it.
  • Doesn’t get good till the end

    I read other reviews that said the same thing but I want ahead and bought the book. and, it’s exactly what they said. skip the majority of the book... it’s only good at the end. don’t waste your money.

    This book bored me so much I gave up reading it half way through. There are many characters but none of them had any depth to them. The writing style was tedious and the plot too unbelievable to be scary.
  • Completely mind numbing and awesome read!

  • Slow start, but great twist!

    This book was very good! It started out slow and didn't really pick up until about 75% in, but when it did finally pick up, BOY did it pick up! There was a twist that I didn't see coming and for me, that's what made the book! The MC in rather unreliable and there's also the fact that she's not the most stable person on the planet, but I think both of those those things were intentionally done but the author AND made the story a much more interesting read--even during the slow parts. Other than the pacing, the conclusion of the book wasn't--in my opinion--very satisfactory.
  • Pretty good

    I really enjoyed the language used, and it was an easy read. 4 Stars because I didn’t really fancy the end of it. It ended pretty abruptly. I felt like she focused so much on the beginning and all the descriptions, but wrapped it up so fast. Aside from that small criticism, it was a fast one to fly through when bored at work.
  • Brilliant!

    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.
