What do you do when you think no one is watching? A smart, unsettling, unputdownable literary thriller from the award-winning, critically acclaimed writer
Lina and Cain are doing their best to stay afloat. Money has been tight since Cain returned from active duty, and starting a family is proving harder than they thought.
Putting Lina's inherited lake house on Airbnb seems like the solution to at least one of their problems. The secluded house is more of a burden than a retreat, anyway, and fixing up the old place makes Cain feel useful for once.
But letting strangers stay in their house might not be the best idea. Someone is watching - their most mundane tasks, their most intimate moments - and all the things Lina and Cain want to keep hidden will be exposed.
A riveting psychological thriller from the bestselling author of Call Me Evie, In the Clearing and Tell Me Lies.
