Lucille Fletcher – The Girl In Cabin B54

High Anxiety Mysteries

A ship’s doctor thinks he has permanently buried his past but a creepy young lady, who apparently is also a gifted psychic, is going to push to the brink of madness.
The story develops as a breathless noir, set in a supernatural environment with an unpredictable ending.
Lucille Fletcher is a master when it comes to create the right atmosphere; in this book she always hits the nail on the head, building the climax page by page, in a way that pushes the reader to keep on reading and never stop.
The characters are believable and endearing and the constant strain of worrying, wondering and waiting for the end to come, is closer to the atmosphere of a high lever thriller – Patricia Highsmith could have not done a better job.
Terrific.
