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.


  • Julie Z.

    Weirdest book I have ever read. Not in a good way.

  • Lauren

    The narrator’s voice made the character sound like she was in her 50s, not 30s.

  • Tina G.

    The narration was hard to listen to at times. Lacking voice inflection. The story line dragged on for the first 8 hours. There was a lot of repeating. Witten or audio, it would go smoother with less repeating and it would have less confusion if it didn't bounce back so much. Plus there is a twist in the plot, but it's so out of character and seems like a new book all together with different characters. Just not logical.

  • Lisa S.

    The book was well written with lots of plot twists. Occasionally too slow and predictable in places but generally enjoyable. The narrator was very hard for me to get past. The voice did not match the character, the oration was clunky and often felt like little effort was used.

  • Anonymous

    This could have been a great suspense read had the author chose to not drift into the last quarter and cause readers to smack ourselves on the head. It became boring and ludicrous.

  • Anonymous

    The book had enough going for it to keep your interest peaked, but the last 25% of the book was written very poorly. The conclusion ended up being absolutely stupid.. it was boring. Author tried to cram too much information in it and it was bizarre.

  • Anonymous

    Riley Sager is generally an enjoyable, decent author, but this book is the exception. It is too fanciful for the genre, maybe. The narrator’s voice is also confusing and grating at times. I was excited for months for this release, so I’m genuinely disappointed enough to write my first review.

  • Kimberly A.

    This has to be one of the most ridiculous books I’ve listened to. I wasted a credit on this.

  • Beth K.

    This book started out good then turned weird. One character ended up trapped in another persons body. This is where I lost interest. I am not a fan of fantasy fiction. If you are, you may enjoy it.
