THE SUNDAY TIMES & NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
From the bestselling author of Richard and Judy pick In A Dark, Dark Wood comes Ruth Ware's new compulsive page-turner.
'Agatha Christie meets The Girl on the Train'
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' The Sun
'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' Sunday Times
Now available for pre-order: Ruth Ware's brand new psychological thriller, The Death of Mrs Westaway. Coming June 2018.
