AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Shari Lapena’s new thriller, AN UNWANTED GUEST, is available now!

The twists come as fast [as] you can turn the pages. People

Provocative and shocking.” —Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Find Her

“I read this novel at one sitting, absolutely riveted by the storyline.  The suspense was beautifully rendered and unrelenting!” —Sue Grafton, New York Times bestselling author of X


It all started at a dinner party. . .

A domestic suspense debut about a young couple and their apparently friendly neighbors—a twisty, rollercoaster ride of lies, betrayal, and the secrets between husbands and wives. . .

Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all—a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. But one night, when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately lands on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story.

Inside the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they've kept for years. 

What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family—a chilling tale of  deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.

    was my first book of hers. this particular week i had read 3 books prior to this one all written in first person, so her third person narrative threw me off initially. nonetheless, full of twists & i thoroughly enjoyed it. i actually couldn’t predict whodunnit!

    Wow! This book was fairly short, however some parts of it (especially in the beginning) were dragged out. About halfway through, once I’d figured out who done it, I was ready to put the book down because I thought it was going to be so predictable. Though when I kept reading, there was twist after twist and a complete climax at the ending. I hope there’s a second book because these characters are pretty interesting in itself. Highly recommend if you like a good thriller.
