Isabel’s recent novels Little Sister and Beautiful Liars both entered the Amazon bestseller charts within weeks of release, as readers new and old were gripped by her pacy, character-driven psychological thrillers. The books have since gained a strong following from individuals and reading groups alike, and thanks to those readers’ support, Little Sister went on to be nominated in the Dead Good Reader awards 2018.
This Autumn, Isabel returns with the hauntingly beautiful Lake Child …
Set in a remote valley town in the heart of Norway’s ancient fjords, Lake Child centres on the mystery of a young Norwegian woman, Eva Olsen, as she wakes after an accident and finds herself confined to the attic room of her family’s forest home. When 17-year-old Eva gains consciousness, injured and robbed of her most recent memories, she trusts her parents’ advice that she must remain in her attic bedroom while she recuperates. But when Eva decides the time has come to break free of their caring incarceration, she discovers a world of secrets and lies, and a journey to discover her true identity begins.
If you loved THE TOP OF THE LAKE, SHARP OBJECTS and THE SINNER, you’ll love this multi-layered, atmospheric thriller about a small town with secrets to hide.
