Description

The new page-turner from the author of the phenomenal bestseller, THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR, and A STRANGER IN THE HOUSE.

**********

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.

Review quote

If you want an unputdownable thriller, you're in luck - best-seller Shari Lapena is back with a new whodunnit...Crafted like a vintage Christie and just as tense, this will be a smash hit * Heat * Tense. Unpredictable. Unputdownable. Shari Lapena's novels are domestic noir at its finest. * Simon Kernick * The psychological thrillers of Lapena are masterclasses in tightly plotted, economical narrative...This third novel has a premise straight out of a Agatha Christie classic * Metro * [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 * 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 *
