June 1st 1925, the magnificent passage liner, The Empress Medina was found deserted in the Mediterranean Sea. All the lifeboats had been launched, and no evidence of food or drink was on board. Many explanations were offered, such as piracy, but with the lavish furnishings and priceless artwork still intact, this theory was dismissed. The weather had been fine, so what happened to the three hundred and eighty passengers and one hundred and fifty crew members? No wreckage of the lifeboats of evidence of bodies was ever found. Modern day and Ben Duncan and his wife, Natasha, along with four other couples receive a letter informing them that they have won a Mediterranean cruise, even though none of the recipients can recall entering the competition. James Davenport, the owner of the cruise ship meets the couples in Naples and they embark on what turns out to be a horrifying and enigmatic voyage in which the passengers under extreme circumstances are forced into the act of cannibalism.

I love Anthony's story, The Cruise. It kept me intrigued right from the first chapter. Good storu that builds with anticipation
Enjoyable, haunting and a compulsive read! 12 Jun 2014 By Aldo Ray Fan (United States)
A selection of odd, yet creepy characters are passengers on this haunting cruise. This was excellent and kept me intrigued until the final pages. Written at a pace of my liking and with an ingenious plot. Be warned. This is not one for the squeamish!

Anthony Hulse. Thriller The Cruise. This book is totally different than the other blood and gore books I have read by this author. Having said that this book is so well written and your transported back and forth between 1925 and 2001 with ease. A brilliantly told story that you will enjoy from start to finish. 5* 09 June 2015.

***** Superbly entertaining, 2 Jun 2014 By jkaccinni
A terrifying tale ofa group of Jewish children and escapees. They attempt to flee to Switzerland, led by Danny Wilkinson, the British bomb aimer, who unknown to them is responsible for their plight. Great dialogue and written with a certain panache. This flowed wonderfully. A disturbing and mind-provoking read from this talented author.
