Audio Book Summary


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.

    Poorly written, none of the characters were convincing. I thought the narration was overly dramatic and found her voice grating.

    I enjoyed the story and the narrator did a great job keeping my interest. However I did find the ending quite predictable and felt as though I had solved the "who dun it" quite early in into the novel.

    The book as a whole is pretty good but if you don’t like books with cliffhanger endings and questions that will never be answered this book isn’t for you. Ending ruined the whole thing for me.
