And when Detective Sergeant Frank Ryan arrives from Dublin, a spotlight is cast not only on the damaged history of the valley but also on the difficult relationships that bind 23-year-old Peggy and her three older siblings.
Over the course of the weekend, Detective Ryan’s investigation will not only uncover the terrible truth behind the dead woman’s fate, but will also expose the Casey family’s deepest secrets.
Secrets never meant to be revealed.
The Lake is a gripping murder mystery, with a compelling family drama at its heart.
