The Dinner Guest Summary

The Dinner Guest by B P Walter

'Immensely gripping...Stayed up till past 2am to finish this' Sophie Hannah, Sunday Times-bestselling author of the Hercule Poirot Mysteries

Four people walked into the dining room that night. One would never leave.

Matthew: the perfect husband.

Titus: the perfect son.

Charlie: the perfect illusion.

Rachel: the perfect stranger.

Charlie didn't want her at the book club. Matthew wouldn't listen.

And that's how Charlie finds himself slumped beside his husband's body, their son sitting silently at the dinner table, while Rachel calls 999, the bloody knife still gripped in her hand.

Classic crime meets Donna Tartt in this nerve-shredding domestic noir thriller that weaves a sprawling web of secrets around an opulent West London world and the dinner that ends in death.
