David Easton believed his life was in complete ruins. He managed to scrape together just enough money for a one-way ticket on the fabulous Oceanis. It was the most luxurious liner afloat and he planned to revel in all its opulent pleasures until in the middle of the Atlantic crossing – he would leap from the fantail, thus ending his pain and misery. The problem was that he never dreamt that while counting down the hours until his death, he would meet Diana.

Despite her traveling with her overly protective parents who hoped to introduce her to a suitable husband while onboard, they managed to find each other. As their affections grew, strange things began happening on the ship. At first, it was just mental images and dreams, but as the days passed their very reality began to bend beyond anything their minds could have imagined. 

Together they had to find out what was happening to the Oceanis and how they could find a way to save the great liner and all those aboard her.

REVIEW ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Liner by Chris Coppel is the story of David Easton, a man whose life is in ruins. He books one-way passage on the luxury ship Oceania from which he intends to leap and end once and for all his lonely and painful life. But before he can go through with it, he meets Diana and suddenly things are not so bleak. Could he find in her something to live for? Strange and unexplainable things begin to occur on aboard Oceania, and David and Diana together must race against the clock to uncover what is truly going on in order to save the great liner and its passengers. ⠀ ⠀ I found Liner to be an intriguing and suspenseful thriller crafted by a master storyteller. It is one of those rare books that you can find yourself immersed in and the rest of the world temporarily vanishes. The central characters are dynamic, relatable and genuine and put me a mind of Jack and Rose in Titanic. Their dialogue crisp and often full of sardonic wit. It is a story that grips the readers imagination and pulls them breathlessly to a grand climax. If this is an example of Chris Coppel’s quality of writing I most assuredly plan to dive into his catalog of work. ⠀

I received this book from Matador via Netgalley for a review. A really good book what I would class as mild horror with a good twist. Dave Easton has lost everything and takes a one way trip on the liner, then things start happening. Could not stop reading. Highly recommended.

Packed With Atmosphere,,,. What exactly is happening on the great cruiser Oceanis? Packed with atmospherics, suspense and with twists and turns along the way, this is a gripping paranormal tale to give the reader chills with a well drawn setting and a credible cast of characters.

It’s quite sad at the start as the main character doesn’t want to carry on with his life and plans to end it all in style. Then he meets someone then it gets weird. Interesting and well written but not sure that it’s for me. Did read it all so it did keep me hooked.

An extremely interesting book. The story will grab and hold your attention. I found the plot to be exceptional and the characters were well done. I could not put it down. Definitely a book meant to be read in one reading. Thank you to #NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for my honest review.

A great thriller in an unusual setting sees the protagonist’s life turn quickly around. The story is a strong mystery/thriller but it was the writing style which captured my attention. Great descriptive language and fantastic dialogue made for an immersive reading experience,
