If you liked The Girl on the Train, you'll like this book. Unfortunately I didn't like either book. But just move the main character from a train to a ship and VOILA!!
The good: the actual mystery was interesting but I figured it out in the first third of the book. I only kept reading to see if I was right. I was. The pacing is good and the actual writing is the only thing that saved this book from TT (Total Tediousness)
The bad: I want to be able to either root FOR or root AGAINST someone in the book. Mostly I didn't care about anyone. The bad guys were vaguely drawn. And the good guys... well who WERE the good guys? Certainly not the drunken pill popping protagonist. She can be summed up in 3 words. Dunk and Drunkerer. Oh and add whiny and rude to the list. I kept asking, right to the last page, What in HECK does her boyfriend see in her? I was almost hoping she'd be thrown overboard so the book would just END.
