"Sager's best plot twist yet."
--People, Best Summer Books

"The thrills and chills are all present and accounted for in this tale."
--E! News

"The House Across the Lake reads like a psychological thriller version of The Great Gatsby, featuring binoculars for more accurate across-the-lake spying, smaller gatherings for a shorter list of suspects, and a truly bat**** twist for more satisfying consumption. So basically The Great Gatsby, but better. I know, them's fightin words."

"A suspense novel brimming with twists and turns."

"Riley Sager is a master of the art of the thriller."
--Shondaland, The Best Books for June 2022

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, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Patient and The Maidens

"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, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Last Thing He Told Me

The House Across the Lake pulls you under on the first page and doesn't let you come up for air. With fascinating characters, a suffocating setting, and an intriguing premise, Riley Sager relentlessly turns up the tension on every page. Good luck putting this book down.
--Simone St. James, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Cold Cases

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

[An] outstanding novel of suspense.... Sager brilliantly misdirects readers while playing fair with them. Newcomers and fans both will be eager to see what he pulls off in his next book."
--Publishers Weekly (starred)

A highly entertaining read.

"Sager is terrific at creating suspense within a confined, sometimes claustrophobic setting...Fans of stories that keep the heart pounding and the mind engaged will enjoy this one. . . . One of the genre's most entertaining authors."

"Casey as the unreliable narrator mixed with suspicious neighbors, supernatural undertones, and multiple blindsiding twists, means Sager (Survive the Night) has written another winner.
--Library Journal

"Go into the book blind for a full experience. The clues are definitely there for you to piece together but I was still surprised. You will be questioning everyone and everything, making this book such a fun read."
--Mystery and Suspense

"Sager (Final Girls) offers consistent twists and turns--including one very surprising one--that'll keep you flipping pages until the end.
--New Jersey Monthly

"Reader...before you think you know what's going on, know that you're wrong. The thing you think that happened? It didn't. Your second guess? Also wrong. Your third will be wrong as well."
--The Big Thrill

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
