About the book

THE TENSION-FILLED NEW NOVEL FROM THE AUTHOR OF NUMBER ONE DIGITAL BESTSELLER THE PRISONER .
'Expertly plotted and compellingly told - a cautionary tale that will put you off ever having anyone to stay with you again. I raced through it!'
HARRIET TYCE

Iris and Gabriel have just got home from a make-or-break holiday. But a shock awaits them. One of their dearest friends, Laure, is in their house - sleeping in their bed, wearing Iris' clothes, even rearranging the furniture. She has walked out on her husband - and their good friend - Pierre over his confession of an affair.

Iris and Gabriel want to be supportive. But as Laure's mood becomes more unpredictable, her presence begins to unravel secrets in all their pasts - until things reach breaking point ...

'A gripping plot which will make you think twice about having a guest - especially an uninvited one. B. A. Paris is a mistress at weaving family with fear, suspense and subterfuge'
JANE CORRY
'A mesmeric, tense and twisting nightmare. Suffocating, controlled and hugely entertaining'
CHRIS WHITAKER
'
The Guest is a tense and twisty thriller that builds layer upon layer until the chilling climax. B. A. Paris's characters are so well written that I would recognise them instantly if they walked into a room' NIKKI SMITH
'Stylish, complex twisty'
JENNY BLACKHURST
'I raced through this utterly addictive page-turner that kept me guessing right until the final shocking twist!' ROZWATKINS

FURTHER PRAISE FOR B.A. PARIS' NERVE-SHREDDING NOVELS:
A rollercoaster ride, with plenty of twists'
OBSERVER
'The explosive start of this book sets up a compelling plot [...] written in well-executed super-edgy, short, sharp chapters and the description of her confinement is full of claustrophobic detail and menace' DAILY MAIL
'Book of the Month: chilling, intense and frightening in places, you'll be left wondering what is real and what isn't'WOMAN & HOME'
'Paris skilfully stitches together domestic noir with a kidnap thriller and the result is a gripping read'
DAILY EXPRESS
'Claustrophobic, menacing and relentlessly tense, this is a fiendishly plotted thriller with a great central twist'
SARAH VAUGHAN
'Gripping'
DAILY MIRROR
'Elegant, taut, ingeniously plotted and extremely addictive. Superb!'
WILL DEAN
