THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER. The new pulse-pounding and unputdownable thriller from the author of the number one bestseller THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR, and A STRANGER IN THE HOUSE. 'Tense. Unpredictable. Unputdownable. Shari Lapena's novels are domestic noir at its finest' Simon Kernick ********** 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. ********** `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 '[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 `Shari Lapena combines the cosy feel and cunning plotting of an Agatha Christie-era whodunnit with a sharp eye for contemporary life and she is rapidly becoming a go-to author for anyone seeking a light but lip-smacking mystery' Sunday Express `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 excellent mystery!
