The Last One by Will Dean


When Caz steps onboard the exclusive cruise liner RMS Atlantica, it’s the start of a vacation of a lifetime with her new love, Pete. On their first night they explore the ship, eat, dance, make friends, but when Caz wakes the next morning, Pete is missing.

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-knuckled mystery.

The Last One by Will Dean


Caz and her boyfriend go on a cruise. After waking the first morning, Caz realizes her boyfriend is gone. Then she realizes everyone is gone.

Caz is an interesting character. She finds herself alone on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean. At first, panic seems the appropriate response, but she soon gets smart about finding help and surviving.

The Last One is one shocking thriller with a fantastic twist ending. A clever and intense locked-room mystery about trust and survival.

I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
