This novel follows a brief period in Lo Blacklock’s life. The book opens with a burglar attacking Lo in her apartment. Directly afterwards Lo is reminded that she is supposed to be on assignment soon, reporting on a luxe cruiser liner that boasts that it contains everything their wealthy patrons could possibly want while they are on water. Rather than taking a break and sorting out the psychological and emotional impact the attack had on her, Lo decides the trip is exactly what she needs to get her life back to normal. While on board the cruise ship she inadvertently meets a girl who mysteriously disappears without anyone else seeming to know that she even existed. Is Lo right? Has she simply become a little crazy due to the trauma and not properly dealing with it? Lo thinks she’s right and sets out to prove that the girl not only existed, but also had something terrible happen to her. There are only about 10 guests and an unnumbered amount of staff on this 10 cabin cruise ship and Lo quickly pulls the attention of everyone as potentially crazy, as well as the attention of the would-be killer.
I give this book a 3 1/2 out of 5. This book was great, Ware keeps you guessing at what’s really happening for the bulk of the plot. Unfortunately it’s due to the stupidity of the main character. I’m sorry but Lo really is an idiot, from page one. I think this is worth reading, but I wouldn’t expect you to be swept off your feet while you are reading it.
