NATIONAL BESTSELLER • From the New York Times bestselling author of The Flight Attendant comes the spellbinding tale of a party gone horribly wrong: two men lie dead in a suburban living room, two women are on the run from police, and a marriage is ripping apart at the seams. When Kristin Chapman agrees to let her husband, Richard, host his brother's bachelor party, she expects a certain amount of debauchery. She takes their young daughter to Manhattan for the evening, leaving her Westchester home to the men and their hired entertainment. What she does not expect is that the entertainment—two scared young women brought there by force—will kill their captors and drive off into the night. With their house now a crime scene, Kristin's and Richard’s life spirals into nightmare. Kristin is unable to forgive her husband for his lapses in judgement, or for the moment he shared with a dark-haired girl in the guest room. But for the dark-haired girl, Alexandra, the danger is just beginning. Look for Chris Bohjalian's new novel, The Lioness!

‘OMG… Incredible… Once I started, I couldn’t put down and simply had to read in one sitting… I loved this fast-paced, captivating thriller and would happily give it more than five stars if I could… Definitely one of my favourite reads of this year.’ Nicki’s Life of Crime ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ You think you’re safe in your home. You’re wrong. When Steph’s husband of thirty years, Andy, walks out with barely a word of explanation, she’s left alone in the family home. Both of her children moved out years before. And although her daughter visits often, it’s not enough. Her house doesn’t feel like the warm, happy, laughter-filled home it used to be. Then she begins to hear noises in the night, finds open windows she knows she left closed, items moved. None of it feels right. She wants to believe it’s all in her imagination. After all, who would want to scare her? She’s never hurt a person in her life. But then her front window is smashed, and a young man named Noah helps her fix it. He’s fallen on hard times and Steph impulsively offers him a place to stay. He reminds her so much of her beloved son, and she wants to help him. Also, if he is there, she won’t be home alone. Before long Noah is living in her daughter’s old bedroom, paying rent, and getting his life back on track. Andy and her daughter are furious. But Steph feels secure at last, and that’s what matters. Until the strange things start happening once more. And Steph realises that someone is out to scare her… She doesn’t feel safe, not safe at all. Readers are loving The Guest Room: ‘Oh my days.
