The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Thanks to Gallery / Scott Press via NetGalley for providing an Amazon Kindle e-book ARC copy of The Woman in Cabin 10. Written by Ruth Ware in exchange for an honest review.
Strong but fallible female protagonist and travel writer, Lo Blacklock receives a once in a lifetime opportunity to join a maiden voyage on a unique cruise ship.
Ominously, she is attacked in her apartment before she leaves for the cruise. The mystery of who attacked her and why, is plied with new mysterious occurrences as she begins her travel writing assignment.
The novel is well written. "The Woman in Cabin 10" is woven to make any armchair detective think hard, and double check their facts.
This seems to be a mystery within a mystery. This novel reminds me of the Agatha Christie mysteries I used to devour. The characters are all well developed, most are suspect, and it is easy to see how this would convert to a movie.
Dark but enjoyable. We now have this in our library, and it continues to circulate.
