A luxury cruise liner, abandoned with no crew, steaming into the mid-Atlantic.
And you are the only passenger left on board.

‘Astonishing’ IAN RANKIN
‘The premise is excellent… [a] mile-a-minute, bite-your-nails-to-the-quick ride of a novel, but I will tell you to trust this writer because I guarantee you’ll enjoy where he takes you. Extra kudos for the final twist, which brought me great pleasure’ OBSERVER
‘Oh my goodness, what a rollercoaster of a read!’ PRIMA

Caz Ripley, a cafe owner from a small, ordinary town, boards the RMS Atlantica with her boyfriend Pete and a thousand fellow passengers destined for New York.
The next morning, she wakes to discover that everyone else on board has disappeared.
And that’s just the beginning. Caz must prepare for a crossing that will be anything but plain sailing …

With the drama of The Woman in Cabin 10 and the tension of And Then There Were None , The Last Passenger is a psychological thriller set aboard a cruise ship about a woman whose seemingly ordinary life is suddenly thrown dramatically off course. Will Dean is The Master of Intense Suspense and this novel is full of his trademark twists and turns.

‘A rollercoaster ride. I barely had any nails left by the end!’ GOOD HOUSEKEEPING
‘This heart-stopping premise is one of the best openings to a book I’ve read’ SUNDAY EXPRESS
‘The apex of suspense writing’ STEVE CAVANAGH
Thrilling and terrifying in equal measure with a brilliantly heart-stopping ending. So good!’ B.A. PARIS
‘Expect not just the unexpected but strokes of genius’ IMRAN MAHMOOD
‘Brilliant, twisted and oh so clever. The Last Passenger is Will Dean at the top of his game. And just wait for that killer last line’ CHRIS WHITAKER
A fast-paced, snakily plotted treat for fans of the modern psychological thriller’ VASEEM KHAN
‘Will Dean is a master storyteller – this book is real edge of the seat stuff! I loved it. And what an ending!’ CATHERINE COOPER
I *guarantee* you will never read another thriller like this one. Sharp, unique, terrifying, page-turning and glorious. Clearly Stephen King and James Herbert had a baby and his name is Will Dean. It’s bloody brilliant’ JOANNA CANNON
‘A story full of surprising twists and turns that hook the reader from the very start right to the denouement’ IRISH INDEPENDENT
