Best-selling author Britney King returns with an adrenaline-fueled thriller about an unlikely array of characters and their heart-pounding plunge into the dizzying depths of madness.
March 2020: Stranded on a remote cruise ship as the pandemic ravages the world, 753 desperate passengers find themselves in a perilous situation. With no hope of docking in sight and dwindling supplies, each must fight their inner demons to survive. Among them are an eclectic mix of people—a father desperately searching for a way to save his daughter’s future, an artist running from a broken past, and a hacker looking to make one last score. But what they didn’t count on is the mysterious cult convention taking place on board.
With enough resources at stake to change or end lives, suspicion and fear quickly build. When bodies begin to drop, they question—is it the virus? Or is it one of them?
Don’t miss this spine-tingling psychological thriller that takes readers on a white-knuckle ride to uncover the truth and find out who—if any—will make it off the ship alive.
Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐
Britney King is an auto-read for me. I rarely even look at the blurb for her books before reading. I always know if anyone is gonna put me on the edge of my seat, white-knuckling my Kindle, it's Britney King, so when I saw the title The Sickness, I was fully on board (pun maybe intended a little bit). Anyway, I started reading, and my first thought was early 2020 and the cruise ships forced to sit offshore, waiting for permission to dock and let the passengers back on dry land. That's a broad explanation, but I can imagine the places an author's mind would go with everything going on in the world. Of course, a deadly virus isn't exactly the kind of sickness happening on board this ship. I'll skip the spoilers - if you've read this author, you already know there will be twists along with some shocking behavior. There are also the questions, second-guessing yourself about everyone's motives. So, if you enjoy a good thriller, you don't want to miss The Sickness, and if you're new to Britney King, this is a pretty good place to start. It's wonderfully written, hard to put down, and even a little bit nerve-wracking. The pacing is what a good thriller should be, and if you're like me, this one is perfect for trying to guess the character's motives before the reveal.
Britney King lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, children, a dog named Gatsby, one ridiculous cat, and a partridge in a peach tree.
When she's not wrangling the things mentioned above, she writes psychological, domestic and romantic thrillers set in suburbia.
Without a doubt, she thinks connecting with readers is the best part of this gig. You can find Britney online here:
