"Terrifying...a mile-a-second journey through darkest horror..."
THE PEOPLE IN THE LAKE
A LONG TIME AGO, something dark and terrible happened at the remote mountain village of Big Bear Gap before it was flooded to make way for a new reservoir in the North Georgia Mountains.
And now, almost a century later, a terrifying force has been awakened beneath the tranquil waters, a force that threatens not only the serenity of this lonely wilderness paradise, but also the lives of those living along the pristine shores of Big Bear Lake.
When Laura Drake and her precocious young daughter arrive for a mother-daughter vacation at an isolated lake house, they quickly discover they are not alone. At night when it storms, they are awakened by the ghostly clanging of church bells that seem to be coming from the bottom of the lake. Even more unsettling are the spectral figures of two young brothers, Lucas and Mason, who roam the beach on stormy nights, their sad, hollow eyes masking sinister intent.
Part ghost story, part love story, The People in the Lake is a horror/thriller set against the scenic backdrop of the Southern Blue Ridge, an ancient, untrammeled land of mystery, wonder and long forgotten truths where some things are not always as they seem.
