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. ********** Readers love Shari Lapena: `Best book I've read in ages' `5* fast paced, twisting thriller' `The pace never let up' `On the edge of my seat to the end' `I haven't picked up a book in 9 years and I'm so glad that I picked this up!

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 *
