From the bestselling author of Richard and Judy pick, In A Dark, Dark Wood comes Ruth Ware's next compulsive page-turner

'A rollicking page-turner that reads like Agatha Christie got together with Paula Hawkins to crowdsource a really fun thriller' - Stylist

This was meant to be the perfect trip.

The Northern Lights. A luxury press launch on a boutique cruise ship.

A chance for travel journalist Lo Blacklock 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.

Except things don't go as planned.

Woken in the night by screams, Lo rushes to her window to see a body thrown overboard from the next door cabin. But the records show that no-one ever checked into that cabin, 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 terrible mistake. Or she is trapped on a boat with a murderer - and she is the sole witness...

Review quote

"Agatha Christie meets The Girl on the Train in this stupendously good read... Scary and unsettling, it's edge-of-your-seat stuff" * Sun on Sunday * "A tense, moody drama set on a press trip that goes horribly wrong... Ware has produced a fantastic variation on the woman-in-peril theme, with a plucky protagonist and a brilliantly claustrophobic setting" -- Joan Smith * Sunday Times * "A rollicking page-turner that reads like Agatha Christie got together with Paula Hawkins to crowdsource a really fun thriller" * Stylist * "A fantastic read. A fog-enshrouded cruise ship, a twisty puzzle of a murder mystery reminiscent of Agatha Christie, and unrelenting suspense. Batten down the hatches and prepare to read it in one sitting!" -- Shari Lapena, author of The Couple Next Door "The Woman in Cabin 10 is an edge-of-your-seat thriller full of great characters and twists" -- Reese Witherspoon "[It] channels Agatha Christie's murders at sea in a satisfying contemporary direction." -- Mark Lawson * Guardian, Book of the Year * "Taut and provocative " * Independent * "This atmospheric thriller will have you gripped " * Closer * "Ware's virtues are gloriously old-fashioned: an ability to combine a sense of menace with the lightness of touch...and sharp prose." * Sunday Express * "I absolutely swallowed it whole; she takes that classic golden-age premise of a locked room and turns it into something completely right for the twenty-first century" -- Erin Kelly "A deeply intriguing slow-burn mystery that has you wondering if anyone can be trusted. Ware draws you in deep and holds you tight until the very end. Fantastic" -- S.J.I. Holliday "A claustrophobic page-turner that'll have you suspecting everyone. Agatha Christie for the Whatsapp generation" -- Tammy Cohen, author of When She Was Bad "The Woman in Cabin 10 is a deliciously compulsive read. At once up-to-the-minute and timeless, it blends classic suspense writing with twenty-first-century twists and turns. A book to keep you reading late into the night and leave your mind and pulse racing long after the final page" -- Ann Morgan, author of Beside Myself "A compelling thriller... It gave me nightmares - but only in the way a juicy thriller ought to do." * Running in Heels * "All the glamour of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express with a titanic dose of intrigue and mystery... fast and addictive and will keep you guessing until the very end" -- T.R. Richmond, author of What She Left "A dark and gripping thriller that will enchant readers" -- Sarah Ward, author of In Bitter Chill "A tense, twisty delight that powers along at a heart rattling pace" -- Angela Clarke, author of Follow Me
