    DescriptionOne late spring evening in 1912, in the kitchens at Sterne, preparations begin for an elegant supper party in honor of Emerald Torrington's twentieth birthday. But only a few miles away, a dreadful accident propels a crowd of mysterious and not altogether savory survivors to seek shelter at the ramshackle manor--and the household is thrown into confusion and mischief. Evening turns to stormy night, and a most unpleasant parlor game threatens to blow respectability to smithereens: Smudge Torrington, the wayward youngest daughter of the house, decides that this is the perfect moment for her Great Undertaking. The Uninvited Guests is the bewitching new novel from the critically acclaimed Sadie Jones. The prizewinning author triumphs in this frightening yet delicious drama of dark surprises--where social codes are uprooted and desire daringly trumps propriety--and all is alight with Edwardian wit and opulence.

    Review quote
    "The author's command of period archness tips its hat to a pantheon of social satirists: Luis Bu?uel in cahoots with Oscar Wilde and Jane Austen. Jones's caustic takedown of 1-percenter exceptionalism arrives like a divine gift to occupying party poopers everywhere."--New York Times Book Review
