The Unexpected Guest by Agatha Christie

The Unexpected Guest

In The Unexpected Guest, on a foggy night in Wales, Michael Starkwedder’s car runs into a ditch on a lonely road. When he enters a house through the French windows of its study to seek help, he finds an invalid who has been shot dead in his wheelchair and a woman, who turns out to be the victim’s wife, standing nearby and holding a gun. Apparently on impulse, Starkwedder decides to help the woman hide her crime. These two, along with a very interesting array of other characters from the murdered man’s mother to a Chief Inspector, bring constantly new and shifting perspectives on the crime, proving that the obvious isn’t always so obvious.
