The Guest Room by Chris Bohjalian

Chris Bohjalian isn’t afraid of tackling social issues in his books, and The Guest Room is no exception. His latest novel deals with sex slavery. Richard Chapman hosts a bachelor party for his brother, but after one of the “entertainers” kills her handler, things go from bad to worse. Richard’s life is completely turned upside down. Told from multiple points of view, readers get to see how this tragedy affects Richard, his wife, and one of the entertainers.

I am a huge fan of Chris Bohjalian’s books, and his newest didn’t disappoint. The ending was completely unexpected, and left me reeling. I couldn’t put this book down until I read the very last page.

If you liked this book, you should also try The Stolen Ones by Owen Laukkanen.
