An Unwanted Guest

by Shari Lapena

Thriller and Suspense

An Unwanted Guest Synopsis

We can't choose the strangers we meet.

As the guests arrive at beautiful, remote Mitchell's Inn, they're all looking forward to a relaxing weekend deep in the forest, miles from anywhere. They watch their fellow guests with interest, from a polite distance.

Usually we can avoid the people who make us nervous, make us afraid.

With a violent storm raging, the group finds itself completely cut off from the outside world. Nobody can get in - or out. And then the first body is found . . . and the horrifying truth comes to light. There's a killer among them - and nowhere to run.

Until we find ourselves in a situation we can't escape. Trapped. 

An Unwanted Guest Press Reviews

Tense. Unpredictable. Unputdownable. Shari Lapena's novels are domestic noir at its finest. - Simon Kernick

An intriguing cast, an isolated location, a raging storm and the threat of death in every dark corner: An Unwanted Guest reads like Agatha Christie with a shot of adrenalin. Clear your desk before you start it because you won't want to put it down. - Gilly Macmillan, author of BURNT PAPER SKY

[An Unwanted Guest] once again shows her gift for smart characterisation combined with a subtle appreciation for the darkness of the human heart . . . A perfectly choreographed danse macabre. - Mail on Sunday

Enthralling! - Prima

Echoes of classic Agatha Christie . . . Be sure to clear your diary. You will want to devour this in a single, uninterrupted sitting. - Herald
