Cruising for a Bruising: The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware

Days after Lo Blacklock is the victim of a home invasion, her travel magazine job outs her aboard an exclusive, small luxury cruise ship for an assignment. Blacklock briefly encounters the woman in cabin 10. but later hears a cry and a splash outside her window. There is a bloody handprint on the wall between her verandah and that of Cabin 10. She sounds an alarm, but no one believes her. The cabin next door is empty. Who died? Who dunnit? Was anyone even killed?

There is a gothic eeriness on this cruise, and the straightforward style is reminiscent of Agatha Christie's writing. This fast paced story well told and creates claustrophobia - even on the open waters. It's a decent thriller in which it's not clear who is coherent and who is corrupt.

A good choice for fans of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.
