In this tightly wound story, 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. 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 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 and a setting that proves as uncomfortably claustrophobic as it is eerily beautiful, Ruth Ware offers up another intense read.
My review: You know I can’t wait for this to be made into a movie (because eventually it will be.) This book read like a very good suspense thriller movie and I enjoyed it from start to finish.
Lo was very believable to me. In the beginning of the book, I wasn’t quite sure what the hell was going on but the author developed this story with a slow burn that eventually it was full on boil that had you turning page after page. Her development was believable she started very weak and developed into an outright strong chic and I dug it.
This was set on a cruise and if you have been on a cruise you know, you don’t really have anywhere to go until you make land. What if you witnessed a murder? what then… what if there was no evidence of that murder? Creepy as hell even more creepy cause you HAVE NO WHERE TO FREAKING GO.
Such a great book that I highly recommend you read if you haven’t already.
