Emma Dibdin launches The Room by the Lake in London

Last night, Wednesday 12th July, Head of Zeus were delighted to join Emma Dibdin launching her new novel, The Room by the Lake at West End Lane Books in London. The Room by the Lake is a sophisticated debut thriller about a young woman drawn in by a cult.

When Caitlin left London for New York, she thought she'd left her problems behind: her alcoholic father, her dead mother, the unrelenting pressure to succeed. But now, down to her last dollar in a strange city, she is desperately lonely.

Then she finds Jake. Handsome, smart, slightly damaged Jake. And he wants her to meet his family.

He takes her to a lake house in the middle of the woods – in the middle of nowhere. The community there live off-grid. They believe in regular exercise and group therapy. And they're friendly. Really friendly.

Turns out they're not Jake's real family – but isn't family exactly what she's running from?

But as the days drift by, Caitlin starts to feel uneasy. Now that she's no longer running, does she risk getting lost forever?

The Room by the Lake will be out in hardback and ebook 10th August 2017.
