An instant New York Times bestseller, The Woman in Cabin 10 is a gripping psychological thriller set at sea from an essential mystery writer in the tradition of Agatha Christie.

In this tightly wound, enthralling story reminiscent of Agatha Christie’s works, 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. The sky is clear, the waters calm, and the veneered, select guests jovial as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea. 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 dark and terrifying 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, spine-tingling turns, and a setting that proves as uncomfortably claustrophobic as it is eerily beautiful, Ruth Ware offers up another taut and intense read in The Woman in Cabin 10—one that will leave even the most sure-footed reader restlessly uneasy long after the last page is turned.

    I prefer a more likeable main character, but it was still suspenseful.

    A must read if you enjoy a good mystery. I couldn't put it down and I loved the ending. Several of the other reviewers mention that the book starts off slow. I disagree. I think the beginning pace was perfect to develop the characters.

    The book was engaging from the beginning and kept one involved listening till the end. The fact that the main character had so many flaws but was still strong was inspiring.

    Good book. I was frustrated by Lo's stupidity at times. In the end it paid off.

    Good story. I found it a little predictable but still kept me engaged.

    It is difficult for me to rate this book because the narration is so awful I never reached a point where I could enjoy or be taken in by the story. The accents made me giggle and the attempts at masculine characters sounded muffled and again quite comical. It is a suspense filled story that I believe is quite good, but save your audio credit and read this one for yourself.

    Loved the narration! It was a great story too, just when I thought I had it all figured out I was way off!

    I enjoyed the book, the story was quite interesting and I looked forward to it. The main character was annoying however; always self deprecating and making obvious mistakes that could compromise her safety.

    enjoyable story, interesting twists in the second half kept me guessing

    I realized the novel was going to be drivel but hoped it would be fun and the plot would keep me going. Barely. The fact that characters are dying and you want to find out who was doing it, along with a few twists and red herrings, will keep you going (if you're, say, stuck in a car for hours with nothing else to read). The main character is an unlikable victim-y girl, always complaining and constantly on the verge of passing out. The author writes 10-15 (20?) times; "the walls felt like they were closing in on me.." or "my heart was pounding so hard..." (Is that what these kind of novels do?? I didn't know that.) Situations are repeated or re-explained a groan-worthy amount of times, not building tension, but apparently making the book long enough to be published. I don't know Ruth Ware's work, this is probably what she's known for. If you know this author and like her work I guess this one will be fine for you. The only thing "Agatha Christie" about the novel is that you are stuck in one location for pretty much the entire story.
