• Description : El nuevo y electrizante thriller de Shari Lapena, autora de La pareja de al lado, es Agatha Christie con un chute de adrenalina. Los huéspedes que van llegando al encantador y remoto hotelito Mitchell's Inn se observan mutuamente con interés, pero desde una prudente distancia. Todos ellos han recalado allí en busca de un relajante (quizá hasta romántico) fin de semana en medio del bosque y lejos de sus vidas. Pero cuando una violenta tormenta azota las montañas, el grupo se ve completamente aislado del resto del mundo. Nadie puede entrar... ni salir. Entonces descubren el primer cadáver, y la horrible verdad sale a la luz. Tienen a un asesino entre ellos. Y no hay escapatoria. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION 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. [...] by Publisher : 'Suma'
