Under the Lake by Stuart Woods
In the beautiful northern mountains of Georgia lies a lake built by an obsessed man at a terrible price. This placid body of water has brought prosperity to an isolated community, and with it two strangers who intermingle with the insular local folk, strangers probing into crimes against nature from generations past that cannot remain submerged beneath the water’s surface.

Under the Lake marks the eagerly awaited return of Stuart Woods to the atmospheric American South of his award-winning novel Chiefs. John Howell, once a top investigative journalist, comes to this backcountry town on the run from a personal and professional life that has somehow gone sour. What he finds is a mystery so deep, so complex, so bizarre, that he can concentrate on nothing else. It begins with his entanglement in a subtle but relentless battle waged by the autocratic town father and the local sheriff against an outcast family, ravaged by its origins. Howell is further drawn in by his involvement with two women - an ambitious young reporter on the prowl for corruption, and a shy backwoods beauty, forsaken by the world through her family’s ill-kept secret. Then, without warning, visits from an otherworldly young girl haunt Howell as his homey cabin becomes a spectral theatre offering strange and frightening images of a hideous event long ago.

Here is a truly mesmerising psychological thriller, a story of the dark underside of a Southern town an its inhabitants. It is a story only Stuart Woods could write. Under the Lake is his most complex work yet, which readers will thrill to with breathless excitement - all the way to the very end.
