review Into the Night

Een 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 his lonely isolated existence Then Sterling Wade an up and coming actor filming his breakout performance in a closed off city street is murdered in the middle of an action packed shot and Gemma and Nick have to put aside their differences to unravel the mysteries surrounding the actor's life and d. So strong was Sarah Bailey s first novel The Dark Lake that I was than happy to have another outing with DS Gemma Woodstock just a month or so later And Into the Night didn t disappointWhere the first book was all small town heat this one is big city chill as Gemma s new home Melbourne shivers through winter Gemma has left her family behind in Smithson and moved to the city for a change a change in work and a change in life She s finding her way in a new team with a new professional partner and trying not to spend too much time alone in her inner city shoebox apartmentWhen a homeless man is brutally murdered Gemma is first on the scene and hopes it might be her chance to take the lead on the investigation But not this time Then just days later a local but well known actor is killed on the set of a major film being shot around Melbourne and suddenly Gemma and her partner DS Fleet are in the spotlight leading the biggest case of their careersThe investigation and procedural aspects of the story were satisfying and believable I couldn t pick the killer until their identity was revealed There were lots of red herrings and connections where I was not expecting them to appear Gemma has also grown as a character I still can t relate to her in terms of some of her actions and decisions but I feel like I understand her a bit better than last time But the thing I liked the most about this book was the locale I m a sucker for a novel set in my own neighbourhood Bailey doesn t give us broadbrush generic Melbourne either There s so much detail locals will recognise buildings and perhaps even particular park benches However the reader doesn t need to be familiar with Melbourne to appreciate the setting Bailey shows the wayThis is a very assured follow up to Bailey s debut Highly recommended With thanks to Allen Unwin for an uncorrected proof to review

Summary ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Sarah Bailey

After the shocking murder of a high profile celebrity Gemma Woodstock must pull back the layers of a gilded cage to discover who among the victim's friends and family can be trusted and who may be the killer Troubled and brilliant Detective Sergeant Gemma Woodstock finds herself lost and alone after a recent move to Melbourne brokenhearted by the decisions she's had to make Her new workplace is a minefield and Detective Sergeant Nick Fleet the partner she has b. Despite loving Dark Lake the first Detective Gemma Woodstock in the series and being thrown straight into a murder at the start of this book I found it overall to be slow and rather repetitive When a homeless man Walter Miller is found brutally murdered for no apparent reason Senior Detective Gemma Woodstock is tasked with finding his killer However a second similar murder of up and coming actor Sterling Wade whilst filming for a zombie movie takes the focus away from Miller s death and into a world of celebrities fame and high profile egos Set in Melbourne Australia there is plenty of atmospheric descriptions to set the scene and it is a very character driven story focusing on Gemma s previous relationship with the father of her little boy Ben and how she copes mentally with being separated from her son She is basically a walking disaster going from man to man unable to maintain a normal relationship Her working partnership with Detective Fleet was also very fractured but I actually liked him and preferred him in the story to GemmaSomething just didn t hit the mark for me in this one as much as it did in the previous book though the last couple of chapters and the ending did redeem it slightly even if a little predictableSarah Bailey writes exceedingly well and allows for the reader to engage in an easy to follow story however it was too slow for my overall enjoyment and I m not sure if I wish to follow Gemma in a further instalment in her troubled life35 stars
