My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Thank you to NetGalley and Allen & Unwin Publishers for the opportunity to read Sarah Bailey in her debut novel The Dark Lake: Gemma Woodstock, #1
If you love a fat book, well-written, with complex characters I recommend this for that 'hunker-down-cold weather-burrow and reading.'
Author Sarah Bailey centers the story in New Wales, Australia. Protagonist Gemma is an imperfect but strong woman and detective who loves her son, but balks at marriage with her long-time live in lover.
I had a phonebook of suspects through most of the novel and am still scratching my head at the artistic twists and changes that kept me off balance and the away from the trail of the killer.
Wow. I look forward to more from Sarah Bailey.
