Passenger 23 Summary

Passenger 23 by Sebastian Fitzek

Every year, on average 23 people disappear without a trace from cruise ships.

No one has ever come back.

Until now.

Five years ago police psychologist Martin Schwartz lost his wife and son. They were holidaying on a cruise ship when they simply vanished, the case written off as a straightforward murder-suicide.

They are not the only parent-and-child pair to have disappeared from this ship in recent years - and yet, the authorities seem unconcerned.

But when a missing girl reappears - carrying Martin's son's beloved teddy bear - the police won't be able to avoid the truth that something sinister is lurking on board...

'Without question one of the crime world's most evocative storytellers' KARIN SLAUGHTER

'Fitzek's thrillers are breathtaking, full of wild twists' HARLAN COBEN

Passenger 23 Reviews

'The whole thing is bloody, breathless, deliberately discomforting and outrageously gripping' * Shots Magazine *
'The author constructs a closeted and claustrophobic atmosphere. The tension does not let up ... The reader's expectation of a solution is continuously frustrated, the multiplicity of twists surprise, and those surprises keep coming' * Promoting Crime Fiction *
'It takes a certain type of writer to really get to the heart of a chilling tale and grip the reader throughout. Sebastian Fitzek has proven capable of that with his unique take on the crime thriller, using the open seas as the primary setting ... Strong narrative movement and a unique plot let Passenger 23 stand out in the genre' * Mystery and Suspense *
