  • The Other Guest


    Laila and her husband, James, arrive for a week's holiday in The Maldives, much in need of a fresh start. While James spends his time exploring the island, Laila relaxes by the pool and finds herself inexplicably drawn to the seemingly perfect family who arrived on the same flight as them.

    Emilia is on holiday with her husband and twelve year old twin boys. She has no idea who Laila is, or that she has been watching her family so intently since they arrived. Emilia is enjoying her holiday far too much to worry about anyone else.

    But five days later Emilia's world is blown apart by a horrifying accident.

    Laila thinks she has information on what happened. She is convinced she has seen something that Emilia needs to know. But the more Laila learns about Emilia's family for real, the more she is beginning to realise that not everything she has seen is how it appears.

    What if she has got it all wrong?
