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 describe only 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 listen in The Woman in Cabin 10 - one that will leave even the most sure-footed listener restlessly uneasy long after the last minute ends.
Includes an excerpt from Ruth Ware's The Lying Game!

Hours and hours of tired...
I didn't enjoy this book.
The protagonist was not very likeable and she spends the entire story telling us how tired she is... over and over. I'm disappointed because I liked the author's last book, and although I think the narrator is outstanding ( based on this book and many others ) I think some may confuse their dislike for her with the character herself. I don't 't recommend this book

Fairly good once you get past the whining
I bought this book because I 'sort of' enjoyed Ruth Ware's last book. For more info on that read my review of her book In A Dark, Dark Wood.
I think overall she's a good writer and I enjoy her writing style quite a bit. This book is similar in style and pace and it's exciting and keeps you guessing. Unfortunately, as in her previous book, the main character does a good bit of melodramatic whining. I'm not sure if this component of the character's personality was part of the point of the story. I suppose it provides a contrast for her eventual transformation, but it was so grating I almost stopped listening. Thankfully the whining factor diminishes in the last quarter of the book.
I'm glad I kept listening because I really enjoyed the story and the ending. It's not a great book, but I think it's pretty solid and was worth the credit.
The narration is well done.
