Sarah Lotz
publisher:
Little, Brown and Company

Thriller

We gave it a B+

A cruise ship called The Beautiful Dreamer is found floating, empty of passengers, after being stranded at sea for days. Lotz’s eerie tale contains freaky spooks, obnoxious lifelong cruisers, a celebrity medium who might not be the joke she seems, and plenty of paranormal activity. You’ll turn the pages curiously, hungry for clues, until the ending, told through newspaper clippings and CIA files, kicks you in the stomach. Take it to the beach—but maybe not on a cruise. B+
