Dark Sky Island

A Jennifer Dorey Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Dark Sky Island, Lara Dearman’s follow-up to the first Jennifer Dorey mystery is sure to find fans in readers of Susie Steiner and Sharon Bolton.

An inspector and journalist join forces to uncover long-buried secrets, simmering resentments, and a chilling murder in a tiny, remote island in the English Channel.

The tiny island of Sark lies isolated in the dark waters of the Channel Islands. No cars are allowed. No streetlamps light its paths. It is the world’s only Dark Sky Island. This breathtaking patch of land seems the picture of tranquility—but at its heart lies a web of murder, deceit, and hidden danger.

When bones are discovered on Derrible Bay and an elderly resident is violently murdered, DCI Michael Gilbert from the nearby island of Guernsey is called in to tackle the case. With his department under fire, he needs to find the killer—and fast. Joining him is newspaper reporter Jennifer Dorey, whose father died in a mysterious drowning off the island. As Michael struggles to crack the case and Jennifer launches her own investigation, the island’s residents are left reeling and soon, their dark secrets begin to unravel threatening everything.

On an island steeped in superstition, where tales of hauntings and devil craft abound, Michael and Jenny race to discover the truth in Dark Sky Island, the second tantalizing installment of Lara Dearman’s Jennifer Dorey mysteries.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 09, 2018 – Dearman's crisply written sequel to The Devil's Claw takes Jenny Dorey from Guernsey, where she's a reporter for the Guernsey News, to the nearby Channel Island of Sark, where a human skeleton has turned up in a cave. Sark three miles long by a mile wide has a population of about 450. For police work, the Sarkees depend on the force in Guernsey. At the site where the bones were found, Jenny sees the investigating officer, her friend Det. Chief Insp. Michael Gilbert, who tells her that the skeleton is female and has been there for at least 20 years. Hours later, someone slits the throat of doddering old Reg Carr , leading Jenny to wonder: "What the hell else can have happened on Sark in the last twenty-four hours?" The answer is plenty. Meanwhile, Jenny remains obsessed with the death of her father, who fell from his boat two years earlier and drowned in what was officially deemed an accident, but she believes was murder. An intricate plot, intriguing characters, and an unusual setting make this a winner.
