9780007211661: The Unexpected Guest

A new full-length novel adapted by Charles Osborne from Agatha Christie’s acclaimed play, and beautifully re-packaged with stunning new cover illustrations.

When a stranger runs his car into a ditch in dense fog near the South Wales coast, and makes his way to an isolated house, he discovers a woman standing over the dead body of her wheel-chair bound husband, a gun in her hand. She readily admits to murder, and the unexpected guest offers to help her concoct a cover story.

But is it possible Laura Warwick did not commit the crime after all? If so, who is she shielding? As the gallant unexpected guest, Michael Starkwedder, looks for other enemies of the dead man he certainly isn’t disappointed by a lack of possible suspects – all with very potent motives…

But is it possible that Laura Warwick did not commit the murder after all? If so, who is she shielding? The victim’s retarded young half-brother or his dying matriarchal mother? Laura’s lover? The father of a little boy killed in an accident for which Warwick was responsible? The house seems full of possible suspects …
