"Full of twists... wrongfooting the increasingly uneasy reader at every turn."

The House Guest, the debut novel by the Guardian’s head of books, opens with a glimpse of the kidnapping of a two-year-old before going back in time to London in 2015... Full of twists, The House Guest spirals towards its dark conclusion, wrongfooting the increasingly uneasy reader at every turn.
