9780573014673: Unexpected Guest, The (Acting Edition)

Melodrama / Characters: 7 male, 3 female

Scenery: Interior

A thriller as well as a puzzler set in a foggy estate in Wales, this mystery opens as a stranger walks into a house to find a man murdered and his wife standing over him with a gun. But the woman is dazed and her confession unconvincing. So the unexpected guest decides to help her and blame the murder on an intruder. Later, the police discover clues that point to a man who died two years previously and a pandora's box of loves and hates, suspicions and intrigues is opened to the night air.

"The impact is tremendous... Just when the murder seems solved ... Miss Christie pulls her almighty knock out punch. I admit her complete victory."-London Evening News

"Tantalizing ingenuity."-London Tatler

From the Back Cover:

With over two billion books in print worldwide, Agatha Christie is the bestselling novelist of all time, having penned more than one hundred works of fiction, drama, poetry and non-fiction. With THE UNEXPECTED GUEST, just as was so superbly done with her New York Times bestselling Black Coffee, author Charles Osborne adapts this brilliant Christie play into a most intriguing mystery novel.

Along a mist-shrouded country road in South Wales on a chilly November evening, engineer Michael Starkwedder's car stands hopelessly stuck in a muddy ditch. Ambling up to the nearest house for help, Starkwedder gets no reply when he knocks on the French doors of the elegant, darkened home. With a push, the doors open, and inside he is witness to a startling scene: a man, slumped over dead in a wheelchair, and his lovely young wife standing nearby, with smoking gun in hand. Laura Warwick immediately confesses to the crime. But Starkwedder, a man intrigued by what lay beneath the surface, begins to uncover family ties and chilling motives as twisted as the backroads of rural Wales -- and soon discovers that in this seemingly open-and-shut case, nothing is what it appears to be...

Review:

"For a gracious pick-me-up, it's just what the butler ordered". -- People on Black Coffee
