From the Editor

I recently read that at any given time there are between twenty-five and fifty active serial killers in the United States. Stillhouse Lake poses the question: What if one of those serial killers was your spouse? While reading this compelling thriller, I couldn’t help but wonder what I would do if I discovered that for years I had been sleeping next to a monster, blithely unaware of the crimes committed right under my nose.

Gina Royal was a dutiful wife and loving mother of two wonderful children living in a comfortable house in the Midwest. I know many women like her, and maybe you do, too. Her charismatic husband, Mel, was a good provider and an attentive father. They were the epitome of a perfectly average family. Until Mel’s horrid secret life was uncovered.

In the brutal aftermath, Gina becomes Gwen Proctor, the ex-wife of a serial killer, living in hiding with her traumatized children, and Mel is in prison. Even from a distance, he is a threat to her, manipulating both his fans and enemies against her. In response, Gwen teaches herself how to handle weapons expertly and gets in the best physical shape of her life. She exhibits almost superhuman strength—like those fabled mothers who can lift cars off their children.

Stillhouse Lake is a story of determination and guts that illustrates the lengths to which a person will go to start again. In Gwen Proctor, master storyteller Rachel Caine has created a woman transformed by evil, who is single-minded in her quest to keep her children safe. If I was in Gwen’s shoes, I hope I would also unflinchingly stare down the monster—even if that monster was once the love of my life.
