  • "Exciting...the authors stand head and shoulders above their rivals." (Publishers Weekly ).

  • "From the opening page to the shocking last, an amazingly claustrophobic and terrifying reading experience awaits: this book does for cruise ships what Jaws did for summer beach resorts.  One of the best thrillers of the year." (Library Journal *starred review* ).
