About the Book:
And when she walks out into the corridor, all the cabin doors are open. To her horror, she soon realizes that the ship is completely empty. No passengers, no crew, nobody but her. The Atlantica is steaming into the mid-Atlantic and Caz is the only person on board. But that’s just the beginning of the terrifying journey she finds herself trapped on in this white knuckle mystery.
The plot is pretty much a locked room one with a multi-million dollar twist. I felt it got off to a really slow start with nothing happening that really interested me until about a third of the way in. Then the pace was hap hazard, slow then an exciting bit, then slow. For me to appreciate fiction in general and a thriller specifically, it must be believable. I did not find the situation in this novel believable at all. The logistics and the cost are both real barriers to the plot being believable.
Dean is certainly imaginative in his writing. I do feel the book could have easily been shorter, leaving out many of Caz's memories of her father, for example. I found the characters to be strange, almost caricatures. I didn't like any of them.
This would be a novel better appreciated by those who like reality shows, which I do not.
My rating: 3/5 stars.
