The Guest House (Hardback)Robin Morgan-Bentley (author)
Keep your family safe. Whatever the cost...
Jamie and Victoria are expecting their first baby.
With a few weeks to go, they head off for a final weekend break in a remote part of the North Pennines. The small and peaceful guesthouse is the ideal location to unwind together before becoming parents. Upon arrival, they are greeted by Barry and Fiona, the older couple who run the guesthouse. They cook them dinner and show them to their room before retreating to bed themselves.
The next morning, Jamie and Victoria wake to find the house deserted. Barry and Fiona are nowhere to be seen. All the doors are locked. Both their mobile phones and car keys have disappeared. Even though it's a few weeks early, Victoria knows the contractions are starting. The baby is coming, and there's no way out.

'A gripping, must-read, tightly plotted thriller with dizzying twists and turns that will keep you on your toes.' - John Marrs, author of Keep it in the Family
'A tense thriller with a killer twist! Morgan-Bentley has hit on a chilling scenario that kept me rapt and tearing through the pages. His writing is vivid and utterly engaging with shrewd character observations that really brought Victoria and Jamie's nightmare to life. The dual timelines ramped up the tension and intrigue, gradually revealing what had actually happened and setting the scene for a killer twist. Highly recommended!' - KL Slater, author of The Evidence
'I absolutely loved it - such a page-turner with the most excellent plot twist at the very end.' - Leah Hazard, author of Hard Pushed
