Named by the Washington Post as "One of the best mystery books and thrillers of 2016"
"Lots of twists and surprises in an old-fashioned mystery."--R.L. Stine "Thrillist "
"A classic "paranoid woman" story with a modern twist in this tense, claustrophobic mystery...The cast of characters, their conversations, and the luxurious but confining setting all echo classic Agatha Christie; in fact, the structure of the mystery itself is an old one: a woman insists murder has occurred, everyone else says she's crazy. But Lo is no wallflower; she is a strong and determined modern heroine who refuses to doubt the evidence of her own instincts."--Kirkus Reviews
"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
"Ruth Ware is back with her second hair-on-the-back-of-your-neck-tingling tale."--Marie Claire
"[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
"[A] snappy thriller set on the high seas... The first chapter will grab your attention, force it against a wall and hold it there until the end."--Associated Press
"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
"If you're a fan of Agatha Christie, get ready to curl up with this suspenseful mystery."--Bustle
"Haunting and absurdly suspenseful."--PureWow
"A great modern whodunit!"--New York Post
"Ruth Ware's thrilling suspense novel captivates."--US Weekly
"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
"With a flawed but likeable heroine, and a fast moving plot, it makes for a stylish thriller."--Sunday Mirror
"A twisted and suspenseful mystery that entangles friendship, identity and memory with a possible murder.... Subtly tips its hat to authors such as Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers"--Metro
"This beach read thriller has sun, suspense, and goes well with SPF."--TheSkimm
"Ware does something more than write the next Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train, even if she writes in that wheelhouse. Ware puts her own stamp on the genre... The Woman in Cabin 10 is good: it's creepy, it's frustrating, and it's interesting. It brings elements of our current fixations into the realm of the thriller/mystery in the best possible way."--Electric Literature
"Ware's propulsive prose keeps readers on the hook and refuses to let anyone off until all has been revealed."--Shelf Awareness
"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
