Lost in the fog, a stranger seeks refuge in a nearby house only to find a man shot dead and his wife standing over him with a smoking gun. But the wife’s confession is anything but convincing and the unexpected guest decides to help. Remarkably, the police clues point to a man who died two years previously, but as the ghosts of the past begin to emerge, a tangled web of lies reveals family secrets and chilling motives, where the real murderer turns out to be the greatest mystery of all.

Review:

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

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...
