On the Baltic Sea, no one can hear you scream.
Tonight, twelve hundred expectant passengers have joined the booze-cruise between Sweden and Finland. The creaking old ship travels this same route, back and forth, every day of the year.
But this trip is going to be different.
In the middle of the night the ferry is suddenly cut off from the outside world. There is nowhere to escape. There is no way to contact the mainland. And no one knows who they can trust.
Welcome aboard the Baltic Charisma.
This book was crazy: It was like watching an 80s slasher film, minus all the cheese! My only criticism was that it seemed to take forever to get to the blood; a lot of detail about a lot of people on the cruise that I can’t really say that I cared about. But Strandberg kept everything moving at a good pace and boy when disaster hit, it really hit!
I can’t really say much because this book is an ordeal of pretty big proportions and it should be experienced! It had me from page one and then stuck in my brain after I closed it! It is perfect for a slasher fan and will scratch whatever horror and gore itch you may have! I absolutely recommend it to the horror fans out there!! It was crazy, but awesome!!
