Author Ruth Ware, riding the popularity of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, has published The Woman in Cabin 10.
Like The Girl on the Train, Ware’s book has an unreliable narrator. Did journalist Lo Blacklock, who is prone to panic attacks, really witness a murder? Or was it just a hallucination brought on by too many anti-depressants and too much alcohol? Is Lo paranoid, or are all the other cruise ship passengers really united in a conspiracy against her?
These three books have all hit best-seller status. A strong plot, interesting characters, and high levels of suspense have boosted all three. But maybe there’s also some magic in their titles. Instead of Money Grab, perhaps I should call my book Money Grabbed by a Girl on the Train in Cabin 10. What do you think?
