    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 reas...

    "Into the Night" is an excellent follow up to Sarah Bailey's wonderful debut, "The Dark Lake". Her protagonist, DS Gemma Woodstock has moved from small town Victoria to Melbourne to make a fresh start. However, she is finding it difficult to fit in with her new partner and boss and bad...

    *https://mrsbbookreviews.wordpress.com 4.5 stars I noted in October of last year that I was keen to hear from Sarah Bailey, the author of The Dark Lake, very soon. It seems my wish has been granted and less than a year later we have a second novel from Bailey. Into the Night is the i...

    So strong was Sarah Bailey's first novel, The Dark Lake, that I was more than happy to have another outing with DS Gemma Woodstock just a month or so later. And Into the Night didn't disappoint. Where the first book was all small-town heat, this one is big city chill, as Gemma's new...

    Into The Night, the second novel in the Detective Gemma Woodstock series, was just as enthralling as The Dark Lake and certainly exceeded all of my expectations. As references are made to past cases, I would recommend reading the previous book before this one otherwise, it could become...

    Into The Night is the second book in the Gemma Woodstock series by Australian author, Sarah Bailey. Detective Sergeant Gemma Woodstock has been on Melbourne?s Homicide squad for about three months when popular soap actor, Sterling Wade is stabbed on the set of a movie being shot in S...

    Wow!! I love this series and Gemma Woodstock is such a great character. This one had me thinking everyone was the killer. ...

    Troubled DS Gemma Woodstock recently relocates to Melbourne reluctantly leaving behind her young son Ben in the care of his father. She and partner DS Nick Fleet soon find themselves embroiled in a highly publicized new case. A much beloved actor and superstar is murdered on the set of...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Atlantic Books for an advance copy of Into the Night, the second novel to feature Detective Gemma Woodstock. Gemma has transferred to Melbourne and after three months is champing at the bit to be given the lead in a case. She is, therefore, disa...

    This was a really good follow up to the debut. Gemma has moved to the city, and so we get a different faster pace feel as compared to book one. There are some different plotlines occuring at the same time, with twists and turns. I dont think the writing is as good as book one though, a...

    Review on www.bookread2day.wordpress.com Loved reading Into The Night by Sarah Bailey. Loved it. Highly recommend reading Into The Night. What I particularly liked is that I was hooked into this story from page one when the scene leaped straight into action. I really generally felt so...

    This novel is released on December 4, 2018 3.5 stars I loved The Dark Lake so I knew I would love this pen as well. It?s no surprise that the Gemma Woodstock series is a mystery, so don?t go I expecting a thriller. It?s a bit of a continuation from the first novel, so if...

    A moody, atmospheric tome with a twisted case to solve and an even more twisted detective to solve it. A must-read for fans of The Dark Lake, and those who like their police procedurals VERY authentic. ...

    I was a big fan of The Dark Lake, it was a top read for me last year and I am thrilled to discover that Into the Night more than lives up to its predecessor. Dark, gritty, teeming with atmosphere, Into the Night is police procedural crime fiction at its very best. Gemma has move...

    I haven't read the first book by Sarah Bailey, which is touted in the blurb on this new one as being a 'stunning debut.' This second one claims to have 'riveting suspense, incisive writing and a fascinating cast of characters.' It's also 'stunning.' Well, no, it's not any of those ...

    Trigger warnings: murder, cheating, alcohol abuse, sexual assault, physical assault, fire. 3.5 stars. So here's the thing: Sarah Bailey is very, very good at evoking place in her novels. She's very good at writing a broken down and largely unlikeable protagonist. She's very good...

    An excellent followup to The Dark Lake which takes place a few years after the first novel. Gemma?s marriage has not survived and she has moved to Melbourne to take up a Dectective Sergeants position on the Homicide squad. There are a number of threads running through this novel, a...

    An excellent follow up to last years The Dark Lake. That book put Sarah Bailey on my must read author list, and this book confirms her place on it. I love a flawed, tortured protagonist and we have that in Gemma Woodstock. We delve deeper into her psyche, as she re-starts her life ...

    Recently transferred to Melbourne from small town Smithson, Detective Sergeant Gemma Woodstock has a difficult relationship with her partner, Nick Fleet, and is unable to judge what her commanding officer, Chief Isaac, thinks of her. Nursing wounds from a break-up and separation from h...

    4 stars It?s a cold night in Melbourne at 12:14 a.m. DS Nick Fleet and his partner DS Gemma Woodstock respond to the call of a body in a tunnel. It is a homeless man who has been murdered ? stabbed to death. Later, they find out the man?s name was Walter Miller. Chief Inspecto...

    Eyes are beginning to turn towards Australian and New Zealand crime writing in recent years, with many terrific authors becoming readily available to northern hemisphere booklovers. Sarah Bailey impressed last year with her debut The Dark Lake, which introduced troubled small-town cop ...

    It was so different from the first installment, but likely closer to what Gemma Woodstock's stories will continue to be as the series picks up steam. I thoroughly enjoyed this darker, more grownup version. Detective Woodstock has left her ex and young son behind in their small town to ...

    I really wanted to love this, because I loved The Dark Lake so much. But I didn't. I found it really hard to persevere with - and my attention kept wandering. I kept forgetting who the minor characters were, and how they were linked to other characters in the story. Perhaps its jus...

    I really enjoyed this. It reminds me of a Peter Temple novel, something so indefinably Australian about it that I can't put my finger on. Definitely worth the read! ...

    3 and 3/4 rounded up. I thought I already posted this. ...

    3 3/4 rounded up.. Not my favourite genre, but really held my interest. A much smoother read, than the first one, and I warmed to the silly moo. ...

    Overlong police procedural lacking in meaningful suspense with a troubled female protagonist. Solid plot but rather a slog. Left with little choice but to leave her hometown of Smithson, New South Wales by a combination of circumstances, past mistakes and personal troubles, thirty-t...

    D.S. Gemma Woodstock has moved from her small town to the ?big smoke? of Melbourne, leaving behind everything she?s known. Lonely and isolated, when she begins to investigate the senseless murder of a homeless man, she finds herself empathising with him. However, soon Gemma is as...

    "Into the Night" is an excellent follow up to Sarah Bailey's wonderful debut, "The Dark Lake". Her protagonist, DS Gemma Woodstock has moved from small town Victoria to Melbourne to make a fresh start. However, she is finding it difficult to fit in with her new partner and boss and bad...

    So strong was Sarah Bailey's first novel, The Dark Lake, that I was more than happy to have another outing with DS Gemma Woodstock just a month or so later. And Into the Night didn't disappoint. Where the first book was all small-town heat, this one is big city chill, as Gemma's new...

    Trigger warnings: murder, cheating, alcohol abuse, sexual assault, physical assault, fire. 3.5 stars. So here's the thing: Sarah Bailey is very, very good at evoking place in her novels. She's very good at writing a broken down and largely unlikeable protagonist. She's very good...

    I really wanted to love this, because I loved The Dark Lake so much. But I didn't. I found it really hard to persevere with - and my attention kept wandering. I kept forgetting who the minor characters were, and how they were linked to other characters in the story. Perhaps its jus...

    I really enjoyed this. It reminds me of a Peter Temple novel, something so indefinably Australian about it that I can't put my finger on. Definitely worth the read! ...

    "Into the Night" is an excellent follow up to Sarah Bailey's wonderful debut, "The Dark Lake". Her protagonist, DS Gemma Woodstock has moved from small town Victoria to Melbourne to make a fresh start. However, she is finding it difficult to fit in with her new partner and boss and bad...

    *https://mrsbbookreviews.wordpress.com 4.5 stars I noted in October of last year that I was keen to hear from Sarah Bailey, the author of The Dark Lake, very soon. It seems my wish has been granted and less than a year later we have a second novel from Bailey. Into the Night is the i...

    So strong was Sarah Bailey's first novel, The Dark Lake, that I was more than happy to have another outing with DS Gemma Woodstock just a month or so later. And Into the Night didn't disappoint. Where the first book was all small-town heat, this one is big city chill, as Gemma's new...

    Into The Night, the second novel in the Detective Gemma Woodstock series, was just as enthralling as The Dark Lake and certainly exceeded all of my expectations. As references are made to past cases, I would recommend reading the previous book before this one otherwise, it could become...

    Into The Night is the second book in the Gemma Woodstock series by Australian author, Sarah Bailey. Detective Sergeant Gemma Woodstock has been on Melbourne?s Homicide squad for about three months when popular soap actor, Sterling Wade is stabbed on the set of a movie being shot in S...

    Wow!! I love this series and Gemma Woodstock is such a great character. This one had me thinking everyone was the killer. ...

    Troubled DS Gemma Woodstock recently relocates to Melbourne reluctantly leaving behind her young son Ben in the care of his father. She and partner DS Nick Fleet soon find themselves embroiled in a highly publicized new case. A much beloved actor and superstar is murdered on the set of...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Atlantic Books for an advance copy of Into the Night, the second novel to feature Detective Gemma Woodstock. Gemma has transferred to Melbourne and after three months is champing at the bit to be given the lead in a case. She is, therefore, disa...

    This was a really good follow up to the debut. Gemma has moved to the city, and so we get a different faster pace feel as compared to book one. There are some different plotlines occuring at the same time, with twists and turns. I dont think the writing is as good as book one though, a...

    Review on www.bookread2day.wordpress.com Loved reading Into The Night by Sarah Bailey. Loved it. Highly recommend reading Into The Night. What I particularly liked is that I was hooked into this story from page one when the scene leaped straight into action. I really generally felt so...

    This novel is released on December 4, 2018 3.5 stars I loved The Dark Lake so I knew I would love this pen as well. It?s no surprise that the Gemma Woodstock series is a mystery, so don?t go I expecting a thriller. It?s a bit of a continuation from the first novel, so if...

    A moody, atmospheric tome with a twisted case to solve and an even more twisted detective to solve it. A must-read for fans of The Dark Lake, and those who like their police procedurals VERY authentic. ...

    I was a big fan of The Dark Lake, it was a top read for me last year and I am thrilled to discover that Into the Night more than lives up to its predecessor. Dark, gritty, teeming with atmosphere, Into the Night is police procedural crime fiction at its very best. Gemma has move...

    I haven't read the first book by Sarah Bailey, which is touted in the blurb on this new one as being a 'stunning debut.' This second one claims to have 'riveting suspense, incisive writing and a fascinating cast of characters.' It's also 'stunning.' Well, no, it's not any of those ...

    Trigger warnings: murder, cheating, alcohol abuse, sexual assault, physical assault, fire. 3.5 stars. So here's the thing: Sarah Bailey is very, very good at evoking place in her novels. She's very good at writing a broken down and largely unlikeable protagonist. She's very good...

    An excellent followup to The Dark Lake which takes place a few years after the first novel. Gemma?s marriage has not survived and she has moved to Melbourne to take up a Dectective Sergeants position on the Homicide squad. There are a number of threads running through this novel, a...

    An excellent follow up to last years The Dark Lake. That book put Sarah Bailey on my must read author list, and this book confirms her place on it. I love a flawed, tortured protagonist and we have that in Gemma Woodstock. We delve deeper into her psyche, as she re-starts her life ...

    Recently transferred to Melbourne from small town Smithson, Detective Sergeant Gemma Woodstock has a difficult relationship with her partner, Nick Fleet, and is unable to judge what her commanding officer, Chief Isaac, thinks of her. Nursing wounds from a break-up and separation from h...

    4 stars It?s a cold night in Melbourne at 12:14 a.m. DS Nick Fleet and his partner DS Gemma Woodstock respond to the call of a body in a tunnel. It is a homeless man who has been murdered ? stabbed to death. Later, they find out the man?s name was Walter Miller. Chief Inspecto...

    Eyes are beginning to turn towards Australian and New Zealand crime writing in recent years, with many terrific authors becoming readily available to northern hemisphere booklovers. Sarah Bailey impressed last year with her debut The Dark Lake, which introduced troubled small-town cop ...

    It was so different from the first installment, but likely closer to what Gemma Woodstock's stories will continue to be as the series picks up steam. I thoroughly enjoyed this darker, more grownup version. Detective Woodstock has left her ex and young son behind in their small town to ...

    I really wanted to love this, because I loved The Dark Lake so much. But I didn't. I found it really hard to persevere with - and my attention kept wandering. I kept forgetting who the minor characters were, and how they were linked to other characters in the story. Perhaps its jus...

    I really enjoyed this. It reminds me of a Peter Temple novel, something so indefinably Australian about it that I can't put my finger on. Definitely worth the read! ...
