The House Across the Lake (Large Print / Library Binding)
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!— Rachele
The New York Times bestselling author of Final Girls and Survive the Night ("a master of the twist and the turn"*) is back with his most unexpected thriller yet.
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 rich, 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 and placid as it appears. When Katherine suddenly vanishes, Casey becomes consumed with finding out what happened to her. In the process, she uncovers eerie, darker truths that turn a tale of voyeurism and suspicion into a story of guilt, obsession and how looks can be very deceiving. With his trademark blend of sharp characters, psychological suspense and gasp-worthy twists, Riley Sager's The House Across the Lake will shock readers until the very last page.
