An Unwanted Guest
AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

The twisty new thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door and A Stranger in the House

A weekend retreat at a cozy mountain lodge is supposed to be the perfect getaway . . . but when the storm hits, no one is getting away


It's winter in the Catskills and Mitchell's Inn, nestled deep in the woods, is the perfect setting for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. It boasts spacious old rooms with huge woodburning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a good murder mystery.

So when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and a blizzard cuts off the electricity--and all contact with the outside world--the guests settle in and try to make the best of it.

Soon, though, one of the guests turns up dead--it looks like an accident. But when a second guest dies, they start to panic.

Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. And there's nothing they can do but hunker down and hope they can survive the storm. . . and one another.

A Stranger in the House: A Novel
Shari Lapena’s new thriller, AN UNWANTED GUEST, is available now!

“Smart and suspenseful. . . you'll never see the ending coming.” --PureWow

In this neighborhood, danger lies close to home. A domestic thriller packed full of secrets, and a twisty story that never stops—from the bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

He looks at her, concerned. “How do you feel?” She wants to say,
Terrified. Instead, she says, with a faint smile, Glad to be home.


Karen and Tom Krupp are happy—they’ve got a lovely home in upstate New York, they’re practically newlyweds, and they have no kids to interrupt their comfortable life together. But one day, Tom returns home to find Karen has vanished—her car’s gone and it seems she left in a rush. She even left her purse—complete with phone and ID—behind.

There's a knock on the door—the police are there to take Tom to the hospital where his wife has been admitted. She had a car accident, and lost control as she sped through the worst part of town.

The accident has left Karen with a concussion and a few scrapes.  Still, she’s mostly okay—except that she can’t remember what she was doing or where she was when she crashed. The cops think her memory loss is highly convenient, and they suspect she was up to no good. 

Karen returns home with Tom, determined to heal and move on with her life. Then she realizes something’s been moved. Something’s not quite right. Someone’s been in her house. And the police won't stop asking questions.

Because in this house, everyone’s a stranger. Everyone has something they’d rather keep hidden. Something they might even kill to keep quiet.

turnemos para ir a verla cada media hora.

La niña duerme la última vez que voy a verla. Pero ahora la casa me parece excesivamente tranquila, así que subo tan rápido como puedo las escaleras hasta que confirmo que mi peor pesadilla se ha hecho realidad: ¡mi hija ha desaparecido! Nunca hasta hoy había tenido que llamar a la policía. Pero ahora están en mi casa y quién sabe lo que pueden llegar a encontrar.

¿De qué eres capaz cuando has sobrepasado tus límites?¿De verdad conoces a tus vecinos?¿Y a tu marido?¿Y a ti misma? Las personas somos capaces que casi cualquier cosa.

An Unwanted Guest
A remote lodge in upstate New York is the perfect winter wonderland getaway . . . until the bodies start piling up.

It's winter in the Catskills and the weather outside is frightful, but Mitchell's Inn is so delightful! The cozy lodge nestled deep in the woods is perfect for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. The Inn boasts spacious old rooms with huge wood-burning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or just curling up with a book and someone you love.

So when the weather takes a turn for the worse and a blizzard cuts off the electricity--and all contact with the outside world--the guests settle in for the long haul. The power's down but they've got candles, blankets and firewood--a genuine rustic experience!

Soon, though, a body turns up--surely an accident. When a second body appears, they start to panic. Then they find a third body.

Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. They can't leave, and with no cell service, there's no prospect of getting the police in until the weather loosens its icy grip.

The weekend getaway has turned deadly. For some couples, it's their first time away. For others, it will be their last. And there's nothing they can do about it but huddle in and hope they can survive the storm.

Uma Estranha em Casa
Karen Krupp acorda no hospital, sem ter a menor ideia de como foi parar nele. Tom, seu marido, diz que a porta estava destrancada quando ele entrou em casa, as luzes acesas, e que a esposa provavelmente saiu às pressas quando estava preparando o jantar, pelo que ele viu na cozinha. Karen perdeu o controle do carro enquanto dirigia a toda a velocidade e bateu de frente num poste. O mais estranho: o acidente aconteceu num dos bairros mais perigosos da cidade. A polícia suspeita de que Karen esteja envolvida em algo obscuro, mas Tom tem certeza de que não. Ele está casado com ela há dois anos, conhece muito bem a mulher. Será mesmo? Vai perguntar tudo a Karen quando chegar ao hospital, depois de dizer que a ama e que está feliz por ela ter sobrevivido, é claro. Mas Tom não obtém resposta nenhuma. Porque ela não se lembra de absolutamente nada.
