About the Author

Lori Roy's debut novel, Bent Road, was awarded the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best First Novel by an American Author. Her work has been twice named a New York Times Notable Crime Book and has been included on various "best of" and summer reading lists. Until She Comes Home was a New York Times Editors' Choice and a finalist for the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel.

Let Me Die in His Footsteps was included among the top fiction of 2015 by Books-A-Million and named one of the best fifteen mystery novels of 2015 by Oline Cogdill. The novel also received the 2016 Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel, making Roy the first woman to receive an Edgar Award for both Best First Novel and Best Novel--and only the third person ever to have done so. Gone Too Long was named a People Magazine Book of the Week, was named one of the Best Books of Summer 2019, and was excerpted by O, The Oprah Magazine.

Roy lives with her family in West Central Florida.


"Lake County is an irresistible slice of Florida noir fashioned of great American mythmaking. James M. Cain meets Harper Lee. The story excels as both an exciting crime novel and a fine example of Southern literature." --Ace Atkins, New York Times bestselling author of Don't Let the Devil Ride

"Suspenseful, atmospheric, and surprising, Lake County pulls you and slowly ups the tension until you're holding your breath. Another remarkable crime novel from Lori Roy." --Meg Gardiner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Lake County is the best book yet in Lori Roy's remarkable career, a beautifully written blend of suspense and heartache, where Hollywood longings intersect with Florida crime syndicates in an ever-intensifying squeeze. An atmospheric, haunting read." --Michael Koryta, New York Times bestselling author of An Honest Man
