  • Lo Blacklock – female lead and paranoid journalist

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. At first, Lo’s stay is nothing but pleasant as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea. But as the week wears on, frigid winds ship the deck, grey skies fall, and Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a dark and terrifying nightmare – a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All the passengers remain accounted for – and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something has gone terribly wrong.


I. COULDN’T. PUT. IT. DOWN. This book had me turning every page as quick as I could, completely engrossed in the story and trying to work out every twist and turn. But I couldn’t get it, and I would never have guessed it would end like it did…

Have you read it? what did you think?

Any other good book recommendations?
