The Unexpected Guest began life as a play by Agatha Christie. This is the novelized version written by Charles Osborne. As you read it is obvious that it is derived from a play because the entire novel takes place in one room.
Characters arrive and depart from this room, individually or in groups, from one door or another, just as actors would come and go on stage. This does not detract at all Unexpected guest the quality of the writing or the story itself.
Like many Christie novels the mystery is spun out and almost everyone was suspected of being the murderer at one point or another. Eventually one of the least likely suspects showed another side to his character and became the guilty Unexpected guest.
Until the very last page If you like Agatha Christie and have not read this yet then do. It is a good one. I started to read this book and very soon I knew I had picked a good book to read, I could easily picture this been played out on a stage and it had the usual twists and turns that any Agatha Christie reader would expect.
As with most Christie novels the finger of suspicion moved from character to character as more facts were told. The novel starts with a stranger running his car Having read every full length novel by the queen of crime I came across this play that has been adapted into a novel.
The novel starts with a stranger running his car into a ditch in dense fog near the South Wales coast, and making his way to an isolated house where he discovers a woman standing over the dead body of her wheelchair-bound husband, gun in her hand.
She admits to murder, and the unexpected guest offers to help her concoct a cover story. There is a doubt that the woman, Laura Warwick did not actually commit the murder after-all but why why would she admit guilt.
The house is full of suspects and in turn you will suspect all of them. It was good to read one of my all time favourite authors work with this adapted play.
Due to a pea fog, Michael Starkwedder runs his car off the road and arrives at a house, only to find the wheelchair-bound Richard Warwick shot in the head and his wife, the beautiful Laura Warwick, holding the gun. She claims to have shot and killed her husband, but Starkwedder begins to doubt her story.
Is she innocent and shielding someone, as he thinks, or has he been taken in by a pretty face? Plenty of twists in a rollercoaster of a novel that will keep you guessing to the very, very end. Charles Osborne has done a wonderful job in bringing alive the play in a typical Christie fashion.
The end as in almost all her novels is great and as a reader makes you wonder at the brilliant climax.
