About the Author
Riley Sager is the New York Times bestselling author of seven novels, most recently The Only One Left and The House Across the Lake. A native of Pennsylvania, he now lives in Princeton, New Jersey.
Praise for The Only One Left and Riley Sager:

"As is often the case with Sager's novels, trying to predict where the many twists will take you is fun (and maddening), but some of the most interesting parts of the story lie in the people you meet along the way. The mystery is as tantalizing to us as it is to Kit, but The Only One Left is also an exploration of family, of love, of loneliness. It even asks an examination of true-crime obsessiveness and when tales overtake reality."
--USA Today

"Sager offers his usual array of jaw-dropping twists.... Fans of Daphne du Maurier will enjoy this superior nail-biter."
--Publishers Weekly

"Claustrophobic and haunting, this is Sager at the top of his game."

"Riley Sager fans can count on the author to deliver page-turning thrillers like The House Across the Lake and Lock Every Door, and The Only One Left is no exception."
--Country Living, "23 Best Spring Books for Adults to Add to Your 2023 Reading List"

"Another vivid female narrator from bestseller Riley Sager . . . whose signature corkscrew plots keep twisting until the last cutting sentence."
--Oprah Daily

"This twist on the Lizzie Borden murders has it all: A reclusive woman who was acquitted of brutally murdering her family living in a big, decrepit house; a new caretaker hiding secrets of her own. And, most importantly, there are a number of twists you won't see coming."
--Katie Couric Media

"Riley Sager furthers his reputation for innovative, highly original plots in The Only One Left."
--Shelf Awareness, "Best Books of the Week"

"Perennial thriller favorite Riley Sager is back with another page-turner this summer, this one riffing on one of America's most famous and most notorious true crime cases. . . . The kind of book you'll stay up late into the night trying to finish."
--Paste Magazine

"Riley Sager's spellbinding The Only One Left captures you in its snares from its first tantalizing pages. A Gothic house of horrors, it carries you along effortlessly before delivering a symphony of twists so shocking it took my breath away."
--Megan Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of Beware the Woman and The Turnout

"Riley Sager is one of my favorite authors, and The Only One Left might be his best yet. Not only is it a deliciously Gothic thrill ride featuring two of my favorite things (Creepy Houses and Murderous Ladies), but it also asks big questions about grief, loss, and the secrets we keep even from those closest to us. Fun, scary, and so absorbing I almost missed a flight because I was trying to read just one more chapter, The Only One Left is one hell of a read!"
--Rachel Hawkins, New York Times bestselling author of The Wife Upstairs

"The Only One Left is Gothic horror at its very best--a crumbling mansion by the sea, dripping with blood, secrets, and forbidden romance--and it's a thriller that will keep you guessing to the end. Riley Sager, king of twists, has done it again. I couldn't put this book down."
--Ana Reyes, New York Times bestselling author of The House in the Pines

"Haunting and incredibly nuanced with enough twists to make your head spin, this is Sager at his best. The Only One Left is a chilling, one-sitting read!"
--Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of Just the Nicest Couple

"Page after page, Sager feeds our voyeuristic hunger to know every deep, dark, bloody detail in those rare cases that capture our attention and our imagination. I'll say it: Kit is, hands down, my favorite heroine in the Sager-verse and The Only One Left is a terrifying treat for all of his fans (like me!)."
--Chandler Baker, New York Times bestselling author of The Whisper Network and Cutting Teeth

"The Only One Left might just be Riley Sager's creepiest novel yet."

"Always master of suspense, Sager had me gasping out loud and listening for sounds in my house. I loved this book and it may even be my new favorite of Sager's."
--Mystery and Suspense Magazine

"The Only One Left, a title that clearly speaks to Lenora Hope, is yet another classic from Riley Sager and will have his countless fans reeling and squealing in delight with each passing chapter."

--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"The latest dependable airport bookstore grab and name in summer suspense."
