The Woman in Cabin 10 review

Many thriller and mystery novels are guilty of following the same bland format, causing them to be highly predictable, and more so, highly boring. However, the “psychological thriller meets mystery” novel The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware offers a refreshing break from this mold.

Following the story of travel journalist Laura “Lo” Blacklock, who was assigned to cover the maiden voyage of a luxury cruise ship, this novel takes readers on a journey full of blind twists and turns much like riding a roller coaster in the dark.

After hearing someone being thrown overboard in the middle of the night, Lo begins to investigate the ship’s passengers and crew members for a potential perpetrator. Her situation soon becomes dangerous, however, when she is forced to decide who she can and cannot trust.

For those who enjoy books that are impossible to put down, The Woman in Cabin 10 will keep readers hanging on until the breathtaking conclusion.
