A murder, a sociopath, an earthquake. And another dimension.
It’s 2021 in Hynek, Washington State. Police Chief Michelle Bardo is investigating a bizarre murder and spate of animal mutilations rocking the waters of her resort town. A hard-luck immigrant, Al Dragunov, is searching for answers about his tortured past in war-torn Ukraine. Their paths meet after an apocalyptic earthquake drains Lake Hynek, drawing them into the bowels of the dried lakebed. Underneath is a . . . structure. A simulacrum. A site of inexplicable, irrational experiments since time immemorial.
One part police procedural, one part horror tale, and one part journey into high strangeness—time travel, UFOs, and the interdimensional hypothesis.
From debut author Tim Stone, The Lakebed—a 2019 B.R.A.G. (Book Readers Appreciation Group) Medallion Recipient—is an unpredictable, thought-provoking, and fast-paced sci-fi thriller for fans of The Twilight Zone and The X-Files.
