Overview

"A taut, evocative thriller that's surprising to the last page."
--Karen M. McManus, New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying


There's no hiding on a cruise ship--not even from yourself.

Natalie's parents are taking her and her three best friends on a cruise for her seventeenth birthday. A sail-a-bration, they call it. But it's only been a few short months since Natalie's boyfriend died in a tragic accident, and she wants to be anywhere but here.

Then she meets a guy on the first night and sparks fly. After a moonlit conversation on a secluded deck of the ship, Natalie pops down to her cabin to get her swimsuit so they can go for a dip. But when she returns, he's gone. Something he said makes her think he might have . . . jumped? No, he couldn't have.

But why do her friends think she's crazy for wanting to make sure he's okay? Also, why do they seem to be hiding something from her? And how can she find him when she doesn't even know his name? Most importantly, why is the captain on the intercom announcing the urgent need for a headcount?

With her signature thrilling storytelling, the author of The Leaving and The Possible explores our vulnerability to the power of suggestion--and the lies we tell others and ourselves--in a twisting, Hitchcock-inspired mystery with high stakes and dark secrets.

I am a huge fan of twisty mysteries that have a touch of unreliability and with that synopsis, I was eager to get to this one. I liked Natalie well enough. There are definitely some things going on, some fairly obvious and some not quite as obvious right away. As the layers peel back, her actions make sense and yet I was still bummed at how she was treating her BFFs. Plot wise, the story moves, but it’s repetitive. At first I thought it would add to the trickery, instead it was sort of annoying. There are a lot of moving parts here and I’m not entirely sure all of them were needed Overall, I loved the idea of a cruise ship location and there are some things at the very end that I am borderline obsessed with. However, it was definitely lacking some tension that I was expecting. **Huge thanks to Bloomsbury for providing the arc free of charge**
