Staff Reviews


Casey Fletcher, a recently widowed actress trying to escape a career ending foolish act, has retreated to the peace and quiet of her family’s lake house in Vermont. Her only companions in her exile are her well stocked liquor cabinet and a pair of binoculars. Her voyeuristic glimpses into her neighbors' lives lead her to save Katherine Royce, a former model, from drowning in the frigid waters of the lake. As she gets to know Katherine and her tech innovator husband, Tom, Casey begins to think all is not as perfect as it appears in their lives. Riley Sager takes us on another psychological suspenseful thrill ride filled with sharp, twisty turns that will keep you feverishly turning the pages until the very shocking end. I had a very hard time putting this book down! I highly recommend this addictive, eerie mystery!

Description


THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Named a most anticipated summer book by USA Today, People, E News, Cosmopolitan, PureWow, CNN.com, New York Post, CrimeReads, POPSUGAR, and more

The bestselling author of Final Girls and Survive the Night is back with his "best plot twist yet." (People, Best Summer Books)

Be careful what you watch for . . .

Casey Fletcher, a recently widowed actress trying to escape a streak of bad press, has retreated to the peace and quiet of her family's lake house in Vermont. Armed with a pair of binoculars and several bottles of bourbon, she passes the time watching Tom and Katherine Royce, the glamorous couple living in the house across the lake. They make for good viewing--a tech innovator, Tom is powerful; and a former model, Katherine is gorgeous.

One day on the lake, Casey saves Katherine from drowning, and the two strike up a budding friendship. But the more they get to know each other--and the longer Casey watches--it becomes clear that Katherine and Tom's marriage isn't as perfect as it appears. When Katherine suddenly vanishes, Casey immediately suspects Tom of foul play. What she doesn't realize is that there's more to the story than meets the eye--and that shocking secrets can lurk beneath the most placid of surfaces.

Packed with sharp characters, psychological suspense, and gasp-worthy plot twists, Riley Sager's The House Across the Lake is the ultimate escapist read . . . no lake house required.
