We’re thrilled to announce that Robin Morgan-Bentley‘s new thriller, The Guest House, is published in the UK today (Orion).

An incredibly tense spin on the locked-room mystery, The Guest House follows pregnant couple Jamie and Victoria to a guest house near the Lake District to enjoy one last trip together before becoming parents. After their first peaceful night, however, they find themselves alone in the house. The doors are locked, the owners have disappeared…and the baby is on its way.

Robin’s debut novel, The Wreckage, which published in 2020, was shortlisted for the Specsavers Debut Crime Novel Award (2021), and nominated for the prestigious CWA Dagger in the Library Award (2020). In the run-up to publication, The Guest House was an Observer Thriller of the Month (June 2022), and has received a deluge of amazing reviews:

‘A tense spin on the locked-room mystery. Disturbing and tons of fun’ – The Observer

‘Atmospheric, original and tension-filled, The Guest House will keep you on the edge of your seat.’ – T.M. Logan

‘Utterly intriguing, page-turning and impossible to second guess.’ – Rosamund Lupton

Congratulations, Robin! We’re so excited to see The Guest House out in the world!
