Ruth Ware’s previous book was the bestselling A Dark, Dark Wood. She has followed it up with a compulsive read set on the Norwegian seas.
A travel journalist for ten years at Velocity magazine, Laura Blacklock has finally got her big break. Her friends and colleagues know her as Lo.
It was meant to be the perfect opportunity to show her boss that she has the skills deserving of a promotion. A luxury press launch on a boutique cruise ship is not a bad way to spend a few days.
It gives Lo a chance to recover from a traumatic break-in that has left her on the verge of collapse, and to work out what she wants from her relationship.
But on the first night Lo suspects things are not quite what they seem. Woken in the night by screams, she rushes to her window to see a body thrown overboard from the next-door cabin. When Lo confronts the staff with her suspicions she finds her reliability is called into question. The records on the ship show that Cabin 10 has always been empty and no passengers are missing from the boat.
Exhausted, emotional and increasingly desperate, Lo has to face the fact that she may have made a mistake. Did a murder actually take place or is it all in her imagination?
