This was meant to be the perfect trip. The Northern Lights. A press launch on a luxury 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, and to work out what she wants from her relationship. 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, emotional and increasingly desperate, Lo has to face the fact that her sleep problems might be driving her mad or she is trapped on a boat with a murderer - and she is the sole witness.
Phew what a rollercoaster of a novel. The story is based around a missing person on a luxury liner and how the main character is sure she has heard a murder thus resulting in the dramatic 'who done it' with a twist. Having read Ruth Ware's debut novel which I found disappointing I was unsure whether to read this or not, well I'm glad I did - this book is in a whole different league with a clever plot that will have you holding your breath whilst enjoying the thrill of the chase. A must read!
