Robin Morgan-Bentley was born and grew up in London. After studying Modern and Medieval Languages at Cambridge University, he went on to work for Google before moving to Audible, where he has been working since 2014.

His debut thriller, The Wreckage, was nominated for the CWA Dagger John Creasey New Blood Award, the CrimeFest Specsavers Debut Crime Award and Capital Crime’s Debut Book of the Year Award. His next thriller, The Guest House, will be released in the UK in June 2022 and in the US in September 2022.

Robin lives in Buckinghamshire with his husband and son.


Ben is driving on the motorway, on his usual commute to the school where he works. A day like any other… Except for one man who, in a final despairing act, jumps in front of Ben’s car, turning the teacher’s world upside down in a single horrifying instant…


I’ve signed a few copies of #TheGuestHouse over the last week. You may find one in your local Waterstones! Also @GoldsboroBooks and @WELBooks are selling signed copies online.

If you buy an unsigned hardback online or in a shop, DM me and I’ll send you a signed bookplate. 🧡😱🏡

In this photo of me signing copies of #TheGuestHouse @Waterstones High Wycombe, you may notice that my hair is thinning. Thanks for having me, @waterstoneswyc! 🧡😱🏡 rmorganbentley photo
