Waiting on Wednesday: The Last Passenger by Manel Loureiro

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

As part of this month's Halloweird Creepfest, I'll be focusing on some horror-themed pre-publication releases:

The Last Passenger by Manel Loureiro
Expected publication: Jan 1, 2015 by AmazonCrossing 

Reporter Kate Kilroy accepts an assignment to travel on the Valkyrie, a German ship veiled in secrecy for decades after it was discovered adrift in 1939 with only one passenger aboard, a baby boy named Isaae Feldman.

Obsessed with understanding his origins, Feldman has spent a small fortune restoring the Valkyrie to try to solve the mystery. Assembling a team of experts and sparing no expense, he aims to precisely recreate the circumstances of the Valkyrie’s doomed final voyage. Little does Feldman or his team know that the ship has an agenda of its own. As the Valkyrie begins to weave its deadly web, Kate realizes that she must not only save herself, but the world as she knows it.


I'm generally wary of translations, but this comes from a man hailed as "the Spanish Stephen King" so I will admit to being curious . . .

  1. I don't know if I can do ghost ship stories, I'm afraid of flying as it is, I don't want to ruin cruises for myself too :P

    1. Thanks, a great WOW yourself - I've always wanted to give Gail Carriger's adult series a read.

    1. It's certainly been done before, but it has that remote, locked room feel to it. I always love haunted ships.

  4. At this point is it required that if a book deals with anything WW2 and Germany the word Valkyrie must come up? I am thinking...yes.

    1. That lone baby passenger is kinda creepy, isn't it?
