A luxury yacht arrives in Reykjavik harbour with nobody on board. What has happened to the crew, and to the family who were on board when it left Lisbon? Thóra Gudmundsdóttir is hired by the young father's parents to investigate, and is soon drawn deeper into the mystery. What should she make of the rumours saying that the vessel was cursed, especially given that when she boards the yacht she thinks she sees one of the missing twins? Where is Karitas, the glamorous young wife of the yacht's former owner? And whose is the body that has washed up further along the shore?

Great read ! Could hardly put it down. I thought I had it all worked out at the end, but there was a little twist I hadn't anticipated.

NUMBER 6 IN THE Thóra Gudmundsdóttir series

I'm half done reading this book and finding it very intriguing. I'm okay reading some of the spoiler alerts!

This was the best of author's reads - still quite wordy, but kept my attention. A little disappointed at ending.

Once again, the Queen of Nordic Noir, Yrsa Sigurdardóttir, returns with that penultimate mix of mother - attorney - investigator, Thóra Gudmundsdóttir, to uncover the mystery of a spooky ghost yacht and its missing crew.
Since a bank and a ghost ship are involved, you know the chill Thóra will be dealing with a chiller!

Yrsa S. is just a phenomenal author, I just loved this book. It should be made into a movie, it's not one of those cookie cutter books where maybe someone survives, (spoiler alert) great move on the author's part to have the twins jump off, and also instead of making it a ghost book it was actions by people, although there is still a hint of a haunting.....great book, hope they make it into a movie, I will not forget this read.

Very well written, very depressing.

One of those books that you can hardly put down. Towards the end it became a little bit too unbelievable (can't say what it was since I don't want to spoil the suspense) - but it was a great read.
