The House on the Lake

The new gripping and haunting thriller from the bestselling author of Day of the Accident




No matter where you run . . .
He's never far behind

Lisa needs to disappear. And her friend's rambling old home in the wilds of Yorkshire seems like the perfect place. It's miles away from the closest town, and no one there knows her or her little boy, Joe.

But when Lisa meets some of the locals, and hears some disturbing rumours about the house, she realizes it might not be the sanctuary she thought.

What secret has Rowan Isle House - and her friend - kept hidden all these years?

And what will Lisa have to do to survive, when her own past finally catches up with her?
