Staff Reviews

The House Across the Lake was one of my most anticipated reads of 2022 and it did not disappoint! For fans of the “Rear Window” trope, we meet troubled actress Casey, a recent window, who befriends famous model Katherine after saving her from drowning outside their luxurious lakeside homes. But as they become friends, Casey becomes nosy with her binoculars and realizes Katherine’s life and marriage are less than perfect. If you love twists in your thrillers, this is the one for you! At no point in this book could I predict what would happen next, and I loved every second!! I can’t wait to see what Sager comes up with next, he’s a true master of the thriller genre!

Named a most anticipated summer book by USA Today, People, E News, Cosmopolitan, PureWow,, 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.
