Review quote

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, internationally bestselling author of THE CLUB * 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, #1 Irish bestselling author of 56 DAYS * 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, author of THE LAST RESORT * 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, international bestselling author of The Last Thing He Told Me * 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, internationally bestselling author of The Silent Patient * I was immediately, wonderfully immersed in this absolutely elite - and darkly secret - world. Such sinister fun. Riley really knocked it out of the park. * Gytha Lodge, author of LITTLE SISTER *
