This book took me a lot longer than what it should have but it kept me guessing until the end. That’s something at least.
Lo is travel journalist and is about to write a piece on a cruise line named the Aurora. While on board Lo is among photographers, investors, other journalist and business men and women. Lo suffers from anxiety attacks and it doesn’t help when on the trip something goes horribly wrong.
Next to her cabin Lo has a quick encounter with the woman next to her. Lo hears a scream and a splash, as if someone has fallen or has been pushed off the boat, at night. When she investigates she learns that everyone is accounted for. To add to the mystery the woman she meet has never been seen on the boat and the cabin was registered as empty.
The first half started off slow and I found it hard to continue. What did keep me invested was that I still had no idea who was behind the whole incident. That saying a lot considering most stories you can kind of figure out the perpetrator before the ending.
The ending was a surprise, it had twist and turns and the mystery keeps you guessing until the end. It was definitely better than A Dark, Dark Wood and I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a mystery book.
