Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author of the “twisty-mystery” (Vulture) novel In a Dark, Dark Wood, comes The Woman in Cabin 10, an equally suspenseful and haunting novel from Ruth Ware - this time, set at sea.

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 only describe 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 audiobook in The Woman in Cabin 10 - one that will leave even the most sure-footed listener restlessly uneasy long after the last page is turned.

Not bad, but not great.

I found the narrator to be annoying at times, especially when it came to the Norwegian characters, they all sounded the same. Story was fairly predictable and some sections dragged out for far too long. Overall it was ok.

Anxiety inducing story!

I really enjoyed Imogen Church’s narration. This is my second Ruth Ware novel and while I enjoyed the story it was anxiety inducing. I don’t recommend reading this to fall asleep to. It’s a good story with lots of twists. I’d recommend for folks who enjoy psychological thrillers.

She keeps you guessing the entire novel who, why and what. The narrator does a most excellent job!

best narrator ever

the story was great, but the narrator seriously blew this out of the water. I have never heard an audiobook so well narrated. she did ALL the accents.

Terror on the Elite Cruise ship

I loved the premise of the book - the mystery of an unknown woman in cabin 10. I enjoyed reading this book as it is well written and has an unusual plot and also loved the narrative.
The ending was so satisfying. I’ll be honest though you have to drag yourself through chapters 1-10 before you get to the heart stopping crime and frightening adventure.
