The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

Who wouldn’t like to go on an all-expenses-paid Nordic cruise upon a luxury yacht fitted out for a small but select clientele? For travel journalist, Lo Blackwood, taking a berth on the Aurora Borealis for her magazine couldn’t come at a better time. A burglary has driven her anxiety problem through the roof, so checking out billionaire Lord Bullmer’s new enterprise is a godsend. After all, nothing can hurt her while she’s cruising the Norwegian fjords, can it?

Things soon take a peculiar turn when Lo discovers a mysterious woman in the cabin next door, which the crew declare is empty. Bumps in the night, a scream and what sounds like an ominous splash all send Lo on a mission to uncover the truth, but if she’s not careful, the only thing she’ll get to the bottom of is the North Sea.

Ruth Ware slowly draws you into a story full of suspense and drama. There are plenty of suspects with various motives not only for the perpetrator, but the mystery woman herself. Meanwhile the luxury cruise setting is seductive yet also interestingly claustrophobic, made worse by the lack of Internet connection leaving Lo with no means to raise the alarm.

The Woman in Cabin 10 is a deftly written, escapist read with plenty to make you shiver and Ruth Ware's third outing in the psychological suspense genre. You can read a print copy version or download it from Epukapuka.
