Into the Night
Into the Night | Sarah Bailey
17 posts | 15 read | 18 to read
The Dark Lake is a stunning debut that gripped me from page one and never eased up. Dark, dark, dark--but infused with insight, pathos, a great sense of place, and razor-sharp writing. It's going to be big and Sarah Bailey needs to clear a shelf for awards.' C.J. Box, #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah Bailey's acclaimed debut novel The Dark Lake was a bestseller around the world and Bailey's taut and suspenseful storytelling earned her fitting comparisons with Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins. Into the Night is her stunning new crime novel featuring the troubled and brilliant Detective Sergeant Gemma Woodstock. This time Gemma finds herself lost and alone in the city, broken-hearted by the decisions she's had to make. Her new workplace is a minefield and the partner she has been assigned is uncommunicative and often hostile. When a homeless man is murdered and Gemma is put on the case, she can't help feeling a connection with the victim and the lonely and isolated life he led despite being in the middle of a bustling city. Then a movie star is killed in bizarre circumstances on the set of a major film shoot, and Gemma and her partner Detective Sergeant Nick Fleet have to put aside their differences to unravel the mysteries surrounding the actor's life and death. Who could commit such a brazen crime and who stands to profit from it? Far too many people, she soon discovers - and none of them can be trusted. But it's when Gemma realises that she also can't trust the people closest to her that her world starts closing in... Riveting suspense, incisive writing and a fascinating cast of characters make this an utterly addictive crime thriller and a stunning follow-up to The Dark Lake.

I read The Dark Lake by Sarah Bailey and really enjoyed it so I had to read this ASAP!
The writing style was the same good standard again. The book was easy to read and had a good plot. It took some time to get in to the story but it was not dull in any way. I found that I was getting through the book really quickly and read it in two sittings.
It‘s not because the book is bad in anyway but it is just missing something.
3.5 stars!

This is so good! The second book in the Gemma Woodstock series, and it‘s as dark as the first one. If you like police procedural, you‘ll probably like this. Set in Melbourne, and it follows the murder of a homeless man and a budding international star. Gemma is struggling with her move to the big city, leaving her failed relationship and her son behind to concentrate on her career. I really like the flawed Gemma Woodstock.

Reecaspieces I disliked her in the first book. She was super selfish. This one is much better. She is a little more humble 12mo
Clare_Riley @Reecaspieces I didn‘t see her so much selfish as not knowing what she wanted. She seemed trapped by circumstance in the first book - she‘d drifted in to what she thought other people wanted her to do, not what she wanted. But I might be reading too much into it (not unusual!😆) 12mo

Gemma Woodstock has moved to Melbourne and faces a case of a dead celebrity and two other cases that need to be resolved as well. I really liked The Dark Lake and enjoyed this second outing as well. Gemma feels real and is a complicated person who I hope to spend more time with in future books.

I thoroughly enjoyed this darker sequel. Det. Woodstock left her ex and young son behind in their small town to join the force in Melbourne. She has trouble committing to a new partner & copes w/ one night stands. Thrust onto a new case after a actor‘s death, she has to pull herself together.

Readers of police procedurals & fans of Cormoran Striker would like the slow style as clues are uncovered parallel to the happenings of Gemma's life.

vivastory Your Cormoran Strike comparison totally sold me! 1y
mrozzz Hehe! 😁 @vivastory Yay! 1y

Pre-ordered from Australia, I was super-pumped for this follow-up to The Dark Lake! And it‘s a string sequel, shifting the series to Melbourne. Gemma keeps her bit of an anti-hero edge with her behavior and the book is fast-paced. Parts of the plot are pretty predictable but there are a few surprises too! Can‘t wait to see what happens in the third book!!

Bookishthoughts Love the pillow!😍 2y
TorieStorieS Thanks, @LazyDays ! Both pillows are actually from Amazon! 2y
Bookishthoughts @TorieStorieS I didnt know the other was a pillow! I thought just the whales😄😄 Thank you for letting me know!😊 2y

Day 14| readingresolutions #BookSequel

Gemma Woodstock returns in Bailey‘s follow-up to The Dark Lake.

Pretty good listening so far...and an Aussie narrator, too.

Laughterhp I didn‘t know the Dark Lake was a series! I really liked The Dark Lake!! 2y
JennyM @Laughterhp yes 😄 It‘s pretty good so far. However, the audio isn‘t fabulous, and I think reading it would be better. 2y

Gotta love #BookMail from Book Depository!! Already treated myself to some perfectly cold white wine (the only thing I want to drink in this weather) and trying to decide if I should drop everything for Aussie writer Sarah Bailey‘s new book! I really liked Dark Lake so I‘ll at least try to prioritize it SOON.

Chellebearss Nice bookmark! Last order we got a free Peppa Pig bookmark and my 4YO was the happiest little girl 😀 2y
mrozzz Adorable!! @Chellebearss They‘re the best 😊 2y
TorieStorieS My copy came yesterday too!! Can‘t wait to start!! 2y
mrozzz Yayayayay!!! 😄 Let me know what you think! I‘m trying to finish up some #Booked2018 prompts so it may have to wait until the end of the month, but I‘m so looking forward to it... @TorieStorieS 2y
TorieStorieS Yes! I actually didn‘t expect it to arrive so early, too so it was purposely placed a bit further down by June TBR... but since my BOTM order hasn‘t arrived yet, I may start switching some things around!! ☺️ 2y
