Carol Goodman: The Disinvited Guest
Carol Goodman has been killing it. She’s writing the kind of standalone, psychologically suspenseful novels that are incredibly popular at the moment, but she’s been doing it for twenty years. She’s a tight storyteller and a smart one, and she’s great with character and setting – in fact, she’s the whole package. Her new novel, The Disinvited Guest, posits that we have emerged from a worldwide pandemic, albeit briefly, and been plunged into another one. Her book is set very slightly in an unfortunately believable future.
