THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10

INTERNATIONAL NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER

Named by the Washington Post as
‘One of the best mystery books and thrillers of 2016’

A passenger is missing. But was she ever on board at all?

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.

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 and emotional, Lo has to face the fact that she may have made a mistake – either that, or she is now trapped on a boat with a murderer…

“Agatha Christie meets The Girl on the Train in this stupendously good read…
Scary and unsettling, it’s edge-of-your-seat stuff ”

Inspired by Christie…

I can’t remember when I read my first Agatha Christie but I was not much older than twelve or thirteen, maybe even younger. I was immediately hooked...
Ships & the Sea

Ships & the Sea

One of my earliest memories – I'm still not completely certain if it's a real memory, or a sort of composite of truth and nightmare - is of ships and the sea...

REVIEWS

Lots of twists and surprises in an old-fashioned mystery.

R L STINE

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

STYLIST

“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”
