“Be careful what you watch for…”
Set to be published on 7th July, The House Across The Lake by Riley Sager follows Casey Fletcher, a recently widowed actress trying to escape a streak of bad press, who 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.
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, the sooner 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.
