Waterstones Says

With echoes of Rear Window, Sager's brilliantly constructed psychological thriller finds a recently widowed actress taking a little too much interest in the glamorous couple living across from her lakeside home.

Recently widowed actress Casey Fletcher has escaped to her family's lake house for peace and quiet. She's been happily losing herself in her thoughts and several bottles of bourbon, until the glamorous couple across the lake catch her attention. They look so perfect - just like Casey and her husband used to be. But is anyone what they seem?

Casey has a detective sat at her kitchen table. She has a man bound and gagged upstairs. Casey will uncover dark truths so life-changing that nothing will ever be the same again.

International bestselling sensation Riley Sager is back with his most ambitious thriller yet. With his trademark blend of sharp characters, psychological suspense and gasp-worthy twists, The House Across the Lake will shock readers from the first page to the last.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'For a fresh and twisty take on Rear Window, just add water: The House Across the Lake is a propulsive, tautly-plotted and atmospheric thriller with a vividly drawn cast of compelling characters and a final what-just-happened twist that will have you reeling. Loved it!' - Ellery Lloyd

'Rear Window gets a jaw-dropping twist in this tense, daring and utterly propulsive thriller. If you're not already reading Riley Sager, you're missing out.' - Catherine Ryan Howard

'Brilliantly written with a dark and clever twist on a well-worn trope, and as for that ending...?! What a fun book. I devoured it!' - Susi Holliday

'Riley Sager is an auto-buy for me, and his latest propulsive thriller, The House Across The Lake, may just be my favorite of his yet. With his characteristic mix of dynamic characters and riveting plot twists, Sager will keep you turning the pages in his foray into secrets, grief, revenge, and love.' - Laura Dave

'The House Across the Lake is the work of a master storyteller. A Hitchcockian premise is given an exciting new spin, as voyeurism, murder, and the lies we tell ourselves about our nearest and dearest spiral out of control in this gripping mystery, where nothing is what it seems. I had a thrilling time reading this. An unputdownable page-turner.' - Alex Michaelides
