The Woman in Cabin 10 meets Catch Me If You Can in this gripping new thriller from bestselling author of The Perfect Girlfriend Karen Hamilton. A con-artist finds the roles are reversed when her former victim seeks revenge… Charlotte Wilson didn’t choose a life of crime. It chose her. Once introduced to the world of wealthy clients and easy money by her ex-husband on board cruise ships, Charlotte was hooked. However, complacency and greed led to a slip-up with devastating consequences. Her ex winds up dead and Charlotte is threatened with exposure.
Attending a wedding party onboard another luxury cruise liner gives Charlotte the perfect guise to return to the scene of her original crimes on a Caribbean island, in order to retrieve hidden evidence. However, trapped out at sea, Charlotte realises that the person threatening her must also be on board. But who? A friend? Charlotte’s current lover? Or maybe even her ex-husband’s fiancée?
Upon discovering the link between a past victim and her current tormentor, a horrified Charlotte finds the roles reversed – because it turns out that it really does take one to know one – unless she can pull off her biggest con yet by persuading them of her innocence.
