Summary

In the hottest summer on record, Iron Lake reservoir is emptying, revealing secrets that were intended to stay hidden beneath the water.

Best-selling horror writer Chris Lassiter struggles for inspiration and he's close to never writing again. His life has become an endless loop of nothing but empty pages, personal appearances, and a marketing machine that is systematically destroying his muse. In a desperate attempt to force Chris to complete unfinished manuscripts his agent buys a remote cabin. All Chris has to do is hide away and write, but he's lost his muse, and not even he can make stories appear from thin air. 

Sawyer Wiseman left town for Chicago, chasing the excitement and potential of being a big city cop, rising the ranks, and making his mark. A case gone horribly wrong draws him back to Lancaster Falls. Working for the tiny police department in the town he'd been running from, digging into cold cases and police corruption, he spends his day's healing, and his nights hoping the nightmares of his last case leave him alone.

Contains mature themes.

Excellent

I think this might be the best RJ Scott book I've read in ages (and since I enjoy all her work that is high praise indeed). It's creepy with suspense and an age old mystery. The romance takes a back seat to the mystery for most of the book but it doesn't suffer for it. I believed in these guys and what they've built. I felt Chris' frustration and understood the worlds in his head and how they encroched on the real world. Excellent setting (the lake was haunting) and a great cast of secondary characters.

Brilliantly performed by Sean Crisden.
