The Dark Lake

Book 1, Gemma Woodstock

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

Description

A tight-knit community is shocked by revelations from decades past in this "enthralling" (Associated Press) literary mystery that "will keep you racing toward the end" (Lisa Gardner).

The lead homicide investigator in a rural town, Detective Sergeant Gemma Woodstock is deeply unnerved when a high school classmate is found strangled, her body floating in a lake. And not just any classmate, but Rosalind Ryan, whose beauty and inscrutability exerted a magnetic pull on Smithson High School, first during Rosalind's student years and then again when she returned to teach drama.

As much as Rosalind's life was a mystery to Gemma when they were students together, her death presents even more of a puzzle. What made Rosalind quit her teaching job in Sydney and return to her hometown? Why did she live in a small, run-down apartment when her father was one of the town's richest men? And despite her many admirers, did anyone in the town truly know her?

Rosalind's enigmas frustrate and obsess Gemma, who has her own dangerous secrets--an affair with her colleague and past tragedies that may not stay in the past. Brilliantly rendered, THE DARK LAKE has characters as compelling and mysteries as layered as the best thrillers from Gillian Flynn and Sophie Hannah.

Customer Reviews

The Dark Lake

This is a very boring negative book. Could not like any of the characters as they were all running around on their spouses and deceitful. While trying to solve a murder. Victim was portrayed in such a manner that you could not feel badly for her. Not worth the time or money. Wont read the sequel.

The Dark Lake

Interesting. I like the date at each chapter.

The dark lake

Great read! The characters with all their flaws were the real thing.
