What you need to know before your trail

Summer is coming to a close on Long Island, and Alex is no longer welcome…

One misstep at a dinner party and the older man she’s been staying with dismisses her with a ride to the train station and a ticket back to the city. With few resources, but a gift for navigating the desires of others, Alex stays on the island. She drifts like a ghost through the gated driveways and sun-blasted dunes of a rarefied world, trailing destruction in her wake.

Taut, sensual and impossible to look away from, The Guest captures the latent heat and potential danger of a summer that could go either way for a young woman teetering on the edge.

Travel Guide

Long Island

The book is set on Long Island, in the East end of the island, so in and around The Hamptons. There is little sense of place but it’s clear that this is a well to do area where houses cost millions as this is the perfect hunting ground for the woman in the novel.

The Hamptons consist of the towns of Southampton and East Hampton. They are a popular seaside resort and the playground of the rich and famous.
