Lying in the Deep, by Diana Urban

mysterious medium-paced
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes


Lying In The Deep was a great young adult mystery/thriller that I didn’t want to put down! This murder mystery takes place on a cruise ship as the characters are on a Semester at Sea cruise, which I really liked as the setting. Lying In The Deep has a lot of plot twists and turns that kept me guessing throughout the book and I suspected pretty much everyone at one point or another. This book has a diverse cast of characters that all had motives for murder, everyone was a suspect! I didn’t particularly love any of the characters in this book, but that was okay because that only made me more suspicious of each character. There were moments in this book that reminded me of Agatha Christie’s mysteries, which I really liked as well. Overall, I really enjoyed this one! If you love locked room mysteries and thrillers you should definitely give this one a try.
