I thought this was a very taught thriller. I resented having to put it down! The narrator, Laura "Lo" Blacklock is a high-end travel writer with the opportunity of a lifetime--she is tapped to fill in for her boss and go on the maiden voyage of a boutique, high-end, luxury cruise ship. This could be the big break of her career. Just days before she is to embark on this opportunity, she is burgled and attacked by an intruder; on the heels of the burglary she has a major blowout with her boyfriend which puts her relationship status in jeopardy. Sleep deprived and anxiety riddled, Lo embarks on a cruise through the fjords.

It's a classic mystery thriller--an unreliable narrator, a claustrophobic setting, and suspense to spare.

From the publisher:
In this tightly wound story, 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: 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 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…
