Shortlisted for the Crime Fest 2016 Last Laugh Award
Life is sublime in the idyllic suburb of New York City. Recent divorcee, Karen Daily and her two kids have for the first time in years found joy as they settle into the close-knit community of Savage Lane. Neighbours, Mark and Deb Berman, have been so supportive as she moves on in life: teaching at the local school and even dating again.
But behind pristine houses and perfect smiles lie dark motives far more sinister than Karen could have ever imagined. Unknown to her, Mark, trapped in his own unhappy marriage, has developed a rich fantasy life for the two of them. And as rumours start to spread, it seems that he isn't the only one targeting Karen. . .
A tense domestic thriller where nothing is as it seems, Savage Lane is a searing satire on suburban life, and a raw meditation on obsessive love.
'Jason Starr's Savage Lane is a wickedly smart and twisted look at suburbia - a tense thriller and searing satire' - Don Winslow, author of The Cartel
