Named by the Washington Post as "One of the best mystery
books and thrillers of 2016"
"Ware's follow-up to her best-selling debut, In a Dark, Dark Wood, is a gripping maritime psychological thriller that will keep readers spellbound. The intense final chapters just might induce heart palpitations."--Library Journal, Starred Review
"[The Woman in Cabin 10] generate[s] a dark, desperate tension that will appeal to Ware's and Gillian Flynn's many fans. This is the perfect summer read for those seeking a shadowy counter to the sunshine."--Booklist, Starred Review
"A fantasy trip aboard a luxury liner turns nightmarish for a young journalist in The Woman in Cabin 10, the pulse-quickening new novel by Ruth Ware, author of In a Dark, Dark Wood."--O Magazine
"Ruth Ware's The Woman in Cabin 10 is an atmospheric thriller as twisty and tension-filled as her 2015 debut, In a Dark, Dark Wood... The novel's tone is dark and claustrophobic as Lo continues her search for the woman even though someone is trying to stop her -- maybe even kill her."--The Washington Post
"The Woman in Cabin 10 bucks the trend of disappointing follow-ups, and is every bit as taut and provocative as the earlier book."--Independent
"No one does spooky without the supernatural element better than Ruth Ware, and The Woman in Cabin 10 is proof for any who doubt it."--New York Journal of Books
"With a churning plot worthy of Agatha Christie, and fresh on the heels of her bestselling thriller In a Dark, Dark Wood, Ruth Ware twists the wire on readers' nerves once again. "Cabin 10" just may do to cruise vacations what "Jaws" did to ocean swimming."--Minneapolis Star Tribune
